Nvidia 340 legacy extension for 10.x
« on: October 16, 2019, 04:17:53 PM »
Hello:

I recently replaced my lost TinyCore 8.x SDCard installation with 10.1.
TC 8.x worked perfectly well with Xorg and Nvidia 340 drivers but these are not present in the 10.x repository.

---
Edit:
I now recall I had to go from TC 8.1 32 bit to TC 9.x 64 bit to use available 340 drivers.
I think they are http://tinycorelinux.net/dCore/x86_64/import/.
---

The Nvidia drivers available in the 10.x repository won"t load (I knew it, just thought it was worth trying) and a warning in Xorg.0.log asks for the 340 legacy drivers.

But if I load the 340 drivers available in the 7.x repository (nvidia-340.96-4.2.9-tinycore.tcz) they won't load either and I get another Xorg.0.log warning saying they are not compatible with the Xorg server or something to that effect.

I don't have the var/log/Xorg.0.log at hand as I did not save it but I can get it if necessary.

Is there a chance that we can get the 340 legacy drivers for TC 10.x?

Thanks in advance,

MM
