Kernel – 4.18-rc6 – OK with Latest NVIDIA, and Patched VMware..

Kernel 4.18-rc6 has been released, and details of changes since -rc5 are here:  http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1807.2/06572.html

The latest NVIDIA drivers ( 390.77 and 396.45 ) compile/load OK, as does vmmon-patched VMware 14.1.2 (see http://rglinuxtech.com/?p=2322 ).

Kernel – 4.18-rc6 – OK with Latest NVIDIA, and Patched VMware.. — 2 Comments

  1. I really ask myself, how you get nvidia compiled against 4.18-rc6 since mostly all have the problem with:

    MODPOST 1 modules
    FATAL: modpost: GPL-incompatible module nvidia.ko uses GPL-only symbol ‘__put_devmap_managed_page’

    What kernel you using, that is it working on your side?

    • I’m using – as always – the standard kernel.org kernel source, and I re-checked with 4.18-rc6 (and -rc7), and compile/load is OK:
