There is a new nVidia legacy driver 340.101 out to support new Xorg, but needs patch to be applied if the kernel version is greater than or equal to 4.9.0.

Patch is in this post:

I'll give it a try within the next day or so and report back. Using special test options?

OK tested sgfxi with 340.101 driver with 4.9.0 kernel and had success. No issues so far with this driver along with the patch.

When 4.10 rolls around we shall see if this will work with it or if there's a patch for 4.10.
