NVIDIA – New Driver – Still Broken With 4.16..

NVIDIA have released a new driver – 390.42 – and brief details are here:  http://www.nvidia.com/Download/driverResults.aspx/131853/en-us

This still fails with Kernel 4.16 (tested with 4.16-rc5):

I have had various VMware problems with the 390.xx series of drivers, and so will be staying with (patched) 384.111 for the time being..
