Ok, once the server -L d list you can see all the drivers that have been released in the 310 and 313 series, I think anyway.

There's two issues here: one that maybe an older driver worked but 313.18 does not, which I doubt. Two is that sgfxi did not apply the path fix to all 313 drivers, which it now does.

liquorix has already applied the path fix, I don't know about debian kernels, or siduction ones, my guess is slh refuses to do it because he won't do anything that is related to making his systems work with non free drivers, which is, of course, why we have siduction to use.

I think you have mixed up the driver numbers however, I don't see any 313.10 released anywhere. There was I think a beta 313.09


Yes, sorry, meant 313.09. I'll check again the next kernel update but I had to manually add the symlink for 313.18 last time as -f didn't 'work'.

Ok, then it's as I noted, sgfxi was not testing for / fixing the missing links, now it does, for all the 310/313 series.

This is an slh decision, liquorix, and probably towol kernels, have this fixed, so I didn't see any issues using those kernels.

thanks for the issue report, certain things I won't see because I use liquorix or towol kernels generally, and those guys have the links present.

Issues like this are easy to fix though.

I can't get 313.18 to install on anything higher than 3.7.5.
We might be having the same problem.

that's interesting, usually older drivers fail and newer ones work.

This probably should be checked and reported on nvidia bug report forums:
devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/522835/linux/if-you-have-a-problem-please-read-this-first/

It's possible 313 series requires a patch, but it would be very unusual for an older driver to work and a newer one not to, unless there are specific bugs.

nvidia makes bug report filing very easy, they have a tool to do it installed with their driver: /usr/bin/nvidia-bug-report.sh creates zip file of bug report data.

devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/529620/linux/latest-stable-driver-310-32-wont-compile-on-stable-kernel-3-7-6-3-7-7-3-7-8/

it is the same problem I believe, issue starts 3.7.6 into 3.8

any time you see the linux kernel guys pretend that their kernel has a stable api, you should laugh out loud.
