Akmods fails to compile Nvidia 470xx module on kernel 6.8.4-200 | Workarounds & Solutions

This has been reported as RPMFusion bug 6904, which indicates that Nvidia knows about the bug. There are often delays getting Nvidia fixes than then RPMFusion package. Nouveau is working for me with Wayland, but with Xorg I see a black screen with an X cursor.

Note: You may need to edit /etc/gdm/custom.conf to add comment out the WaylandEnable=false line (I presume this was set because Nvida 470xx doesn’t do Wayland). I normally use nouveau+Wayland, and switch to Nvidia+Xorg when I need Xorg.
