    Default new Kernel4.16 and Nvidia Driver

    With the new Kernel4.16 the Nvidia Drivers do not work, I also tried to uninstall them and compile them from Driver Nvidia.run, but they fail

    Hi
    Normally you need to wait for the fixes to propagate through for the latest drivers and kernels....

    Good to know, did you try the latest .run from nvidia site.

    There should be a log, look at the last ~100 lines of the log. It's probably this issue: https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/1030082 . That thread contains a patch for the issue as well.

    Hi
    I have an old card and the 340.106 custom .run driver, compiled and works fine with 4.16.0

    The last one is the same as that of the Repo Linux x64 Nvidia 390.48
    There is also 384.130 but I doubt it works, and I have not even tried it.
    I had in my / home / the 390.42.run and I tried with this.
    Now I'm with the Kernel 4.15.

    Xorbe was kind enough to provide a link awhile back to a page with the latest-and-greatest nvidia driver downloads (betas, me thinks):

    https://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/

    I'm now on 390.48, but don't think it works unpatched with the 4.16 kernel. My guess is that an nvidia driver that works with 4.16 will appear at this page first.

    The patch as posted in the link I provided has been confirmed to work on the opensuse-factory@ ML.

    I used the recommended patch with driver 390.48 in Tumbleweed and the driver built and installed for me.

    I think this has affected my system too, ran zypper dup and rebooted when finished. System now only boots as far as a flashing tty1 on which I can just make out that its kernel 4.16.0-1-default and I think 20180406 but its difficult to read due the it pulsing on and off quickly. I cannot log on at this screen. I am having to boot into openSUSE by using advanced options where I can still access kernel 4.15.13-2-default.

    I'm on Tumbleweed, KDE, and normally using nvidia drivers 390.48. Graphics card is a GeForceGTX970. Processor is Intel i7-5930K.

    Any help appreciated.

    Adrian
