For a while now I have been putting off upgrading my kernel and X server because I was waiting for a stable nvidia-drivers-304.* to upgrade to that would work with the latest stable versions of those packages. The nvidia-drivers-304.131 ebuild used to claim to be "limited to the following kernels: <sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-4.4". Now nvidia-drivers-304.134 claims to be limited to "<sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-4.10" (and nvidia-drivers-304.131 is no longer in the tree), so I took that to mean I could finally upgrade to gentoo-sources-4.9.6-r1, which is currently the latest long-term-support (gentoo-sources) kernel on AMD64.

After upgrading to gentoo-sources-4.9.6-r1 (configured, built, installed to /boot, but did not reboot into), nvidia-drivers-304.134 (/usr/src/linux symlink pointed to 4.9.6 sources), xorg-server-1.18.4, xorg-drivers-1.18-r1, and xf86-input-evdev-2.10.3, I reconfigured GRUB2 and rebooted, and found that nvidia-drivers-304.134 does not, in fact, seem to work with gentoo-sources-4.9.6-r1, after all.

I am getting the following errors:
[    3.898145] nvidia: loading out-of-tree module taints kernel.
[    3.898150] nvidia: module license 'NVIDIA' taints kernel.
[    3.898150] Disabling lock debugging due to kernel taint
[    3.905431] nvidia: Unknown symbol mtrr_del (err 0)
[    3.905494] nvidia: Unknown symbol mtrr_add (err 0)
[    4.194861] udevd[494]: starting version 3.1.5
[    4.486875] nvidia: Unknown symbol mtrr_del (err 0)
[    4.486940] nvidia: Unknown symbol mtrr_add (err 0)

A little Googling revealed that apparently kernels after 4.3 do not export the symbols mtrr_del and mtrr_add anymore, which nvidia-drivers-304.* requires. (Note: Yes, I did make modules_install, and I rebuilt nvidia-drivers after installing the kernel.)

Thinking that maybe rebuilding nvidia-drivers while actually running the 4.9.6-r1 kernel might help, I did that, but got the following messages at the end of the build:
>>> Installing (1 of 1) x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-304.134::gentoo

(I didn't notice the errors above when I originally built nvidia-drivers-304-134 because I used -q. @@)

I don't think I've done anything wrong on my end. So I have to ask:
  • Should the nvidia-drivers-304.134 ebuild say it's (still) limited to "<sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-4.4"?
  • Is anyone else successfully using nvidia-drivers-304.134 with >=sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-4.4 (no out-of-tree patches)?

Even though I suspect that the problem is not due to my specific setup.....

Why you don't use nvidia-drivers-304.135 from testing? this works well with kernel 4.9.x

I've been using nvidia-drivers-375.26 with gentoo-sources-4.9.11 for quite awhile. No problems here. I'm guessing maybe you have an older GPU?

I'm just starting to look into the 4.10 kernel.

I never followed up on this because I was waiting to actually try out the testing version nvidia-drivers-304.135, as suggested by littletux. Never did. Still using a pre-4.3 kernel (3.14.27 to be exact -- I'm sure I will need to upgrade beyond this very soon -- and, yeah, I know I can go / should have gone up to a 4.1.* LTS kernel; I just hate upgrading kernels in general).

Yesterday I upgraded to the latest stable 304.*, nvidia-drivers-304.137 (yes, MarkKnecht, I have an old card -- nouveau does not work with it, BTW, last time I checked), so now I can try upgrading the kernel again, to the most recent stable LTS version (4.9.*). I am assuming that if 304.135 worked with 4.9.*, 304.137 should also. Fingers crossed…
