The above "---" and "---" lines show patch where to find the file to
patch, it seems your working directory is /data/Nvidia-384.98 so if you
delete the "nvidia-384-orig/" and "nvidia-384/" parts from the:
"--- nvidia-384-orig/nvidia-uvm/uvm8_va_block.c" and
"+++ nvidia-384/nvidia-uvm/uvm8_va_block.c" parts in patch then it
should apply, with a bit of luck.

Another option would be to unpack the NVidia blob first with
NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-384.98.run --extract-only
Then apply the patch and run nvidia-installer ( in the directory with the
unpacked files)

This was the first patch version I ran before posting my "I give up!"
message. Got the same error msg as I mentioned earlier.

@ Dave: doing what you suggested didn't work. Perhaps I misread your
comment about the "---" and the "---"? I don't suppose you would be so
kind as to alter that patch to what it should read in full? Anyway, will
try doing it all again tomorrow before I totally "lose it" tonight :-).

@ you and Markus: thank you for your help. Greatly appreciated. And a
Happy New Year to you both.

BC
