Description Philip Raets 2020-04-07 06:53:40 UTC
While nvidia G05 has been repackaged with the kernel 5.6 patch, the G04 are not.

Is it possible to do this?


Comment 1 Stefan Dirsch 2020-04-07 09:41:10 UTC
I already contacted NVIDIA about this.
Comment 2 Philip Raets 2020-04-10 12:46:20 UTC
Any update on this?

Now I've installed a patched version of the installer, but would like to go back to the rpm version.

kernel 5.5: https://gitlab.com/snippets/1943814
kernel 5.6: https://gitlab.com/snippets/1943873

Unfortunately not. I haven't heard back from them.
Comment 4 Stephan Hemeier 2020-04-10 13:20:06 UTC
Arch Linux has also a patch for kernel 5.6:
Comment 5 Stefan Dirsch 2020-04-10 18:09:37 UTC
Ok. I've added both patches. The repository should be updated early next week after public holidays.
