What is this?
A simple script to find the "kmod-nvidia" module corresponding to your latest Fedora Linux kernel that you just installed via 'yum update'.
Why this script?
This was written because I couldn't be arsed to find out the name of the 'kmod-nvidia' kernel corresponding to the latest kernel on my machine every time Fedora rolls out a new kernel (and I'm not using the statically linked nvidia kernel module for some reason).
Example output when run on the command line:
Kernel 3.8.11-100.fc17.x86_64 (most recent) Block : 3 Major : 8 Minor : 11 Fix : 100 Distro : fc17 Arch : x86_64 ...No nvidia kernel module found through 'yum' for '3.8.11-100.fc17.x86_64' -- looks like you are out of luck! Kernel 3.8.8-100.fc17.x86_64 Block : 3 Major : 8 Minor : 8 Fix : 100 Distro : fc17 Arch : x86_64 ...Nvidia kernel module is installed : kmod-nvidia-3.8.8-100.fc17.x86_64-304.88-1.fc17.3.x86_64 Kernel 3.8.4-102.fc17.x86_64 (least recent) Block : 3 Major : 8 Minor : 4 Fix : 102 Distro : fc17 Arch : x86_64 ...Nvidia kernel module is available but not yet installed : kmod-nvidia-3.8.4-102.fc17.x86_64.x86_64
See the FedoraProject Cuda page on why you might want to use the nvidia driver in the first place: to run CUDA code.
The MIT License should do (but this is just a short code snippet, right?)
Tell me about any.
