Description Sven Müller 2017-03-26 10:14:30 UTC
I use an old Nvidia Quadro FX 3800, which runs with nvidia-drivers-340.x. The last available version in this slot in Portage is 340.120, which doesn't compile with kernel-4.10.x. 

Last part of the error message:
make[2]: *** [/usr/src/linux-4.10.5-gentoo/Makefile:1490: _module_/var/tmp/portage/x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-340.102/work/kernel] Error 2

Patch to compile x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-340.120 with kernel-4.10

I took this patch:

and removed the stuff, which isn't available in the 340-branch. For me it compiles and runs fine so far. 

Please check, if it usable for general purpose.
