Updated nvidia340 driver improves support for KPTI enabled kernels
This update provides version 340.106 from the upstream R340 branch,
improving support for kernels with the kernel page table isolation
Hardware: ASRock motherboard, AMD Athlon X2 7750 processor, 8GB RAM, Geforce 9800GT video card, Atheros wifi.
On a 64-bit Plasma install, server kernel 4.14.13: Packages installed cleanly. As is usual with Plasma on this machine, the Plasma "Leave" functions were unresponsive. "Reboot" from Konsole had to be used to restart the system. After the reboot, I tried all the usual suspects, and everything looked good. Looks OK for 64-bit on this hardware.
On a 32-bit Xfce install, server kernel 4.14.13: Packages installed cleanly. Unlike Plasma, the Xfce "restart" panel icon was functional. After the reboot, I again tried all the usual suspects, and everything looked good. Looks OK for 32-bit on this hardware.
Installed and tested without issues.
Tests included normal desktop usage for about one day, multiple desktop sessions, 3D OpenGL apps and games, steam games, hardware accelerated (vdpau) video playback, VirtualBox VMs and more.
System: Mageia 6, Plasma DE with effects enabled, LXQT DE, x86_64, Intel CPU, nVidia Geforce 210 with nvidia340 proprietary driver.
