Finally managed to create it: the NVidia 340.108 driver for older hardware for kernel 5.4.30, compiled under Porteus 5.0rc1.

010-nvidia-340.108-k.5.4.30-porteus-v5.0-x86_64_rava.xzm
The md5sum is like filehorst reports it:

Code: Select all

Wait till the seconds counter below reaches zero.

Then click "Jetzt zur Download-Seite" (Now to the download page)

Then you will see this:

Since from the time of posting the above and now there have been 3 downloads, but no comment in this thread.
Therefore I presume all who downloaded it ran into no issue and it works for them as it works for me.

Happy Easter, late Lailat Al-Bara'ah and/or late Passah to everyone who celebrates these, happy free days to everyone else and stay healthy and sane.
Cheers!
Yours Rava

I really like the statistic filehort provides when you use a free (as in beer) account… and upload files when logged in.

As of now, 010-nvidia-340.108-k.5.4.30-porteus-v5.0-x86_64_rava.xzm has 8 downloads, while the version for older 5.4.19 kernel uploaded 03.03.2020 only has 7.
Seems it was a good approach to make a driver for the newest available kernel.
And no, newer kernels than 5.4.* are not supported by the 340.* driver. :cry:

Maybe one who is able to code really well will be able to provide a hack (especially in such weird Corona-Chan times one needs to have nice dreams, right?)… but I presume such hack might go against the NVidia copyright rules. Anyhow I cannot code C nearly good enough to even think about attempting such.
Cheers!
