Oh, I was hoping the patch, modified, would work on 304. The part that's active is acpi patch for 304, but I have seen no (zero, zip, nada) patch or hints re 304 so that was just a shot in the dark, glad to see it works. The other file the 331.38 patch patches does not exist in 304.

I've just dist-upgraded to xorg 1.15 and the latest nvidia beta 334.16 says it's not compatible with xorg 1.15 as sgfxi exits with an error?

A comment at devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/686157/linux/334-16-won-t-compile-for-linux-v3-13-patch-included-/ suggests a patch is required.

In case it helps, didn't effect 304. I just ran sgfxi again to make sure.

334.16 drb is not yet added to sgfxi, so sgfxi doesn't know about the 334 series.

sgfxi gets latest beta versions live but that doesn't update internal sgfxi support tests.

I wish nvidia would stop with the number inflation, they used to be better about that, on the primary numbers, but it seems like inflating version numbers has become a requirement for software projects, one thinks of chrome, firefox, etc.

updated. Again, when major versions change sgfxi can't know what those versions support, nor could it have guessed what that new version number would be, there's been no real pattern in that regard from nvidia.

I assume 334 does not need any kernel patches. Let me know if it supports 3.14 when that time comes.

Unfortunately 334.16 appears to install OK but x doesn't start on "Start desktop" dropping back to login prompt. Back to 331.38

the decreasing patch quality is getting worrisome.

the last patch in the thread is now in sgfxi, it's not applying cleanly for some reason, not sure why, but it seems to patch it.

I have not tested the actual driver though.

AMD/Fglrx releases new 14.1 beta 1.3, the beta downloads and extracts without issues, ie, amd did not do random changes that end up breaking the sgfxi logic, so I will add it. Well, lol, the already existing changes to their syntax in the name automatically handled the variation: -betav1.3, from other recent ones like -beta-6 or -betav3 or -beta1 or -beta, too many to actually easily keep track of.

As I've said before, however, I will no longer spend any specialized time handling amd fglrx issues, they are not releasing drivers routinely, and are close to dropping real Linux kernel support, they have already radically slowed their stable release schedule. If 14.1 requires a patch, then you must provide a patch url, I will not spend any time looking for it myself, though I will test it applies correctly etc before putting it into sgfxi.

In general, there is no reason to buy amd cards if you can help it, at the rate they are going, the same goes for an apu using cpu, ie, gfx chip included, I would not recommend that for a long running linux system, not given amd's track record of dropping support for older series very quickly.

As always, if xorg radeon works for you, then you're good to go, but i you are contemplating a system you want to run for a long time with non free drivers, do not buy amd video.

However, this new release actually works, at least as far as my tests go, I don't know what kernel the 14.1 beta 1.3 supports, what xorg version, I'm assuming xorg 1.15 and kernel at least 3.13, maybe 3.14, but give me feedback and I can tighten the error detections there.

If 14.1 beta works for you however, you probably want to use that since it's probably 3 months ahead internally of 13.12 stable.

sgfxi -B
will get you this new 14.1, no idea how long that will remain current beta, could be a day, could be a month, could be two months.
