    Need help with Nvidia 340.108 Driver

    SO, as the title suggests, I am unable to install the correct Nvidia 340.108 driver for my computer.

    Trying

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install nvidia-driver
    installs the 430.40 series and goes no lower than 390.129. I have done some research and it is apparent that the 340 drivers were removed from the repository.

    https://pkg.kali.org/pkg/nvidia-grap...s-legacy-340xx

    "[2021-02-08] nvidia-graphics-drivers-legacy-340xx 340.108-10 removed from kali-rolling (Kali Repository)"

    In Xubuntu/Ubuntu 22.04 I am successful in installing the nvidia driver using this repository

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kelebek333/nvidia-legacy
    However as this repository was made for Ubuntu, it does not work for Kali.

    My question is:

    How can I use Kali AND use 340.108 drivers at the same time?

    Do I need to use an older version of Kali and stick with that or can we get 340.108 added back to the repo so I can actually use this computer for something other than Windows XP? (and Ubuntu ofc).

    Im not sure if you realize, but Kali is shipped with Nouveau. And it has terrible performance and multiple crashes for this particular device. So no. That's not a viable option.

    Try searching for version you need?

    sudo apt install nvidia-driver-340 nvidia-dkms-340

    for dkms drivers to be compiled and work you need kernel headers installed

    This is pretty old now, but might help you compile your own drivers?
