Need Nvidia driver for Fedora Core 24, kernels 4.8.4 and 4.8.6

I’m currently running Fedora Core 24 with 4.7.4, but the “dnf update” has installed kernels
for 4.8.4-200.fc24.x86_64 and 4.8.6-201.fc24.x86_64 which do not boot to the login screen
due to:

Nov 15 18:16:11 jkl /usr/libexec/gdm-x-session[6213]: modprobe: FATAL: Module nvidia not found in directory /lib/modules/4.8.6-201.fc24.x86_64
Nov 15 18:16:11 jkl /usr/libexec/gdm-x-session[6213]: (EE) NVIDIA: Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module. Please see the
Nov 15 18:16:11 jkl /usr/libexec/gdm-x-session[6213]: (EE) NVIDIA: system’s kernel log for additional error messages and
Nov 15 18:16:11 jkl /usr/libexec/gdm-x-session[6213]: (EE) NVIDIA: consult the NVIDIA README for details.
Nov 15 18:16:11 jkl /usr/libexec/gdm-x-session[6213]: (EE) No devices detected.

and in fact the only Nvidia files that I have in /lib/modules are:

./4.8.6-201.fc24.x86_64/kernel/drivers/net/ethernet/nvidia
./4.8.4-200.fc24.x86_64/kernel/drivers/net/ethernet/nvidia
./4.7.4-200.fc24.x86_64/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia-uvm.ko
./4.7.4-200.fc24.x86_64/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.ko
./4.7.4-200.fc24.x86_64/kernel/drivers/net/ethernet/nvidia

I have driver 340.98 installed (for 4.7.4) and have done the “dnf update” command, but
have nothing for the two most recent kernels.

You are probably experiencing the same issue I am. See my post on this forum:

https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/973807/linux/nvidia-linux-x86_64-340-98-driver-not-building-with-kernel-4-9-0-rc2-/

What happened is, code has changed in the Linux Kernel, and now the Nvidia driver needs to adjust to those changes for it to work properly.

As of now, no patches have been offered or issued by the Nvidia developers, which is a shame. I’ve been waiting several weeks now, and nothing. I am unable to test the latest Linux Kernel (4.9-rc+) using the Nvidia driver 340.98.

One patch was offered by a non-Nvidia developer, however, the result was that it compiled, but did not load properly.

So, still waiting for a patch. The question is, when will one be issued? How long must one wait until Nvidia offers a patch?

Crazylyle, would you please be kind enough to post your issue as a reply to my original one, so we can keep the Nvidia driver 340.98 issue in one section? I’m sure others are having the same issue but haven’t commented on it yet. Thank you.

I’m re-posted my issue as a reply to yours. Hope that can help both of us.
