Driver 340.102 fails to build for kernel 4.11.3

The driver needs to be patched in order for the module to be built on 4.11 and newer kernels.

See
https://pkgs.rpmfusion.org/cgit/nonfree/nvidia-340xx-kmod.git/tree/4.11_kernel.patch
for a patch.

I’m willing to go out on a limb and suggest that given their release dates, the drivers for the older releases need to be patched as well.

With the patch you provided,I am unable to comply a new installation package,follow is their output:
patching file ./kernel/nv-drm.c
Hunk #1 succeeded at 22 with fuzz 1.
Hunk #3 FAILED at 66.
1 out of 3 hunks FAILED – saving rejects to file ./kernel/nv-drm.c.rej
can’t find file to patch at input line 222
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
The text leading up to this was:

Are you aware that there are three patches required for 4.11 for 340.102 driver

My Driver installation file has been patch for kernel-4.10,so it isn’t the case i think.

I think we are talking different things.You mean patch for nvidia-340xx-kmod-340.102, but i mean driver installation file itself.

It’s the same code

Another patch has been applied for my installation file successfully.

@leigh123linux

Please accept my apologizes, but how do I apply those patches 4.9 and 4.10?
I am not familiar with patch code and I do not know how to apply it. It looks to me that 4.09 code is like “git text” and not the code to patch something.
I do not use kernel 4.11. I use Ubuntu Linux 16.04, kernel 4.10.0.33

Thank you advance.
