PSA: Kernel 4.6 and Nvidia

Post by don250r » Wed May 18, 2016 12:18 pm

Nvidia drivers are not compiling against the new 4.6 kernel.
Several patches and workarounds are posted, but my luck is none whatsoever at the moment.
Suggestions are welcomed(other than the usual downgrade, or "use a supported kernel").
Mint 18 Cinnamon, 4.6.3 kernel
Intel i5-2500k@4.8GHz
16 Gb DDR3
Nvidia GTX670
