Hi all,

Has anyone been successful installing the Nvidia blob with kernel
4.4.70x and 4.4.71x while using Leap 42.3?

ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia-drm.ko'.

No further info (via 'modprobe -v' or from syslog)?
Which version of the BLOB?

I'm using 381.22.

I have attached the nvidia-installer.log.
Note:

/tmp/selfgz1995/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-381.22/kernel/nvidia-drm/nvidia-drm-drv.
c: In function ‘nvidia_drm_get_client_capability’:
/tmp/selfgz1995/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-381.22/kernel/nvidia-drm/nvidia-drm-drv
.c:557:31: warning: unused variable ‘nv_dev’ [-Wunused-variable] struct
nvidia_drm_device *nv_dev = dev->dev_private;

I had similar issues with legacy Nvidia driver 340.102. The fix was to apply
three patches. I cannot find any for kernel 4.4. I have to apply patches to
Nvidia kernel in TW but not Leap.

Does anyone know if Nvidia files have to be patched?

Regards.
