Subject description: Driver installs but won't function.
 

When I use Tahrpet to install my Nvidia drivers in Tahrpup 7.5, it downloads and installs the driver for the 3.14 kernel. The kernel used in the 7.5 is 4.9, therefore the driver does not function.
Same with my Broadcom wifi. The .pet file available in the repos is for a much older kernel.
Is there a solution or a workaround for this?

Thanks!
Len
