NVIDIA --
NVIDIA has issued new releases of its two legacy drivers for Linux.

The NVIDIA 340.104 driver is now available for older Tesla architecture graphics processors while the NVIDIA 304.137 is out for the GeForce 6 and GeForce 7 generations.

Both of these updated legacy drivers are for supporting newer versions of the Linux kernel (up through Linux 4.13) as well as some updates to the NVIDIA driver installer. The installer work includes updates for SELinux and removing support for checking driver packages / pre-compiled kernel interfaces as that functionality is no longer used.

These updated NVIDIA binary drivers can be found via here and here.
