304.135 driver patched to build on 4.x kernels (4.9 onwards)
Updated 304.132 driver does not load on kernel 4.7.5 nvidia: Unknown symbol mtrr_del (err 0) nvidia: Unknown symbol mtrr_add (err 0) Would appear that the patch to allow compilation for kernels > 4.3 has not been applied.... see: [url]http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=890560#890560[/url]
Updated 304.132 driver does not load on kernel 4.7.5

nvidia: Unknown symbol mtrr_del (err 0)
nvidia: Unknown symbol mtrr_add (err 0)

Would appear that the patch to allow compilation for kernels > 4.3 has not been applied....

@amitp I can probably create the patched .run - but would need somebody else to then make the driver and test it - are you able to do this??

Thank you for your quick prompt. I use the following guide to install the driver on my fresh Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 64bit on my Gigabyte GA-73PVM-S2H motherboard. http://www.allaboutlinux.eu/remove-nouveau-and-install-nvidia-driver-in-ubuntu-15-04/ This board has Nvidia GeForce 7100/nForce 630i on-board.

Thank you for your quick prompt.

I use the following guide to install the driver on my fresh Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 64bit on my Gigabyte GA-73PVM-S2H motherboard.

This board has Nvidia GeForce 7100/nForce 630i on-board.

So, I did the following steps and now things are working. First I recheck for any nvidia leftovers and remove them. [code] sudo apt-get remove nvidia* sudo apt-get autoremove [/code] Still did not work, so I ran [code] sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade [/code] and only than things start working.

Hello NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-304.132-patched-mtrr.run was tested using fedora24. The start is no problem, but OpenGL doesn't move. Is everyone moving OpenGL function?

I was testing it on Ubuntu 16.04 and for me the problem was that driver installation failed not due to [i]mtrr_del (err 0)[/i] error and the module was loaded. This patched version did the trick and installation completed successfully. As far as I understand NVIDIA removed VDPAU support from version 304.128 and newer, so I will probably add a Geforce 710 card to my HTPC and disable the embedded GeForce 71000 in order to be able to play 1080P movies. This is from NVIDIA 304.128 release highlights: [code] Removed libvdpau and libvdpau_trace from the NVIDIA driver package. VDPAU is not supported on the legacy hardware supported on the release 304 legacy driver branch. The libvdpau_nvidia vendor library is still included, so users who wish to use VDPAU with newer hardware that still works with release 304 drivers may install libvdpau from packages provided by the OS vendor where available, or from the source code available at: http://people.freedesktop.org/~aplattner/vdpau/ [/code]

304.134 has been released but still does not contain the mtrr patch so does not load.... A patched 32-bit .run can be found at: [url]https://sourceforge.net/projects/lxpup/files/Other/nvidia/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-304.134-patched-mtrr.run/download[/url]

any hope that for 64 bit linux system that bug in 304 legacy driver will be fix ?
