NVIDIA Releases Open-Source GPU Kernel Modules

Thanks, NVIDIA! The Linux community has waited for this for a very long time.
We hope in the future not only kernel drivers will be open-sourced, but this is a huge step forward.

I still remember the talk by Linus Torvalds and his frustration with Nvidia but this is finally going to fix it!!!

But today no fishes for the dolphins… ?
Is it not compatible to UE 5.0.2 ?!?
Or its the dolphin who not catches the fish right way ?


I’m not aware of any fundamental incompatibilities between the open kernel modules and unrealengine. Maybe the best thing to do is to file an issue on github: Issues · NVIDIA/open-gpu-kernel-modules · GitHub Filling in the bug template (including information like an nvidia-bug-report.log.gz) will help us diagnose things.
