Can you explain the steps you created to patch this? I downloaded the patch, sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-381.09.run --extract-only cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-381.09 sudo nano nvidia-drivers-381.09-v3.patch pasted patch info from https://gist.githubusercontent.com/tpruzina/e7e4b9085e354e6e9f9c0d2401c6e51c/raw/405ec63c8d2f9f8a010d14b2fc3ae9ada2e16707/nvidia-drivers-381.09-v3.patch patch -p1 < nvidia-drivers-381.09-v3.patch cd .. ctrl+f1 sudo init 3 sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-381.09.run I receive installer script errors.... Is this the wrong process? Any idea when the next beta will be released supporting 4.11 ?

You seem to be patching it correctly, would have to show use installer errors to tell more. As for official 4.11 support I don't know, nvidia seems to be releasing updates roughly every month per each branch and mid-week, so I would suspect them releasing it "soon(ish)". They never comment on releases and upcoming features so don't bother to ask though.
