I cannot compile my nv driver for the new 5.0 kernel-default

The 418.43 driver (nvidia-gfxG05-kmp-default) package works fine:

$inxi -G
Graphics: Device-1: Intel UHD Graphics 630 driver: i915 v: kernel

OpenGL: renderer: Quadro P600/PCIe/SSE2 v: 4.6.0 NVIDIA

According to the nVidia web site, 390.116 fixes the kernel API changes
v5.0. It is supposed to work with the GTS450.

tks, trying

Thankyou Larry. works. just saved US$300, was contemplating purchase of
a GTX 1060 ti 6gb. may still spend the money as darktable (photo
software) will utilize gcpu memory, but ...

tks again,

You are welcome. Before you buy a new card just to get the driver to
you should be able to get help on-line. For example, the problem with
390.87 is
that kernel 5.0 removed do_gettimeofday(). The fix for an out-of-kernel
that I maintain was as follows:

u64 ts;
ts = ktime_get_boottime();
return ts/1000;
struct timeval tv;
return ((u64)tv.tv_sec * 1000000) + tv.tv_usec;

I have not looked at the nVidia code, but the changes will be similar.

That $300 price for a 6GB GTX1060Ti looks a bit high. I just purchased a 6
GTX1660Ti from for $290. I would expect the 1060 to be closer to
$200. One thing to watch is the size of the card. The new one was a tight
squeeze in the Dell box. The 1660 is nearly twice as fast as the 1060 in
most tests.

I mean is better to buy a AMD video card, which not nees a propietary
driver, and now with the kernel 5.0 works better:

And never You will have drivers problem with this card!

maybe, maybe not. I need to utilize darktable and opencl support is still
somewhat iffeeey on Radeon cards. Not so much so on NVidia cards.
