Nvidia 304.88 legacy drivers on linux 3.10

UPDATE: You shouldn't need this patch anymore and use the nvidia 304.108 driver instead.

Here's a patch to get the NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-304.88 drivers running on the new linux 3.10 kernel. (also works on the 3.10.1 kernel)

If you use gentoo then you can place the patch in the /etc/portage/patches/x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers/ folder and it will automatically be applied to any nvidia-drivers compilation.

otherwise ..

# Download NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-304.88.run and unpack:
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-304.88.run -x
cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-304.88
# apply the patch
patch -p1 <  .. path to the patch file
# and install
./nvidia-installer

Feel free to leave a comment if this patch is useful.

  3. Thnks! At the previous job, I worked with Linux, and I should say that it was quite convenient. But now our corporation for the sale of mobile phones
    uses Windows 10 on PC and tablets as well. Including for home use NVidia Drivers Download http://driverscenter.com/manufacturers/nvidia so I found it. Every time when I need a driver for video or motherboard, I take it here.
