313.18 installed fine on 3.8 for the first time today (previously only 310.32 would install). Not even -f required.

Well,
in my case "-f" might be needed for my two-monitor configuration with xinerama an virtual-resolution/panning enabled.
This configuration already caused me quite some headaches since the 3xx series-drivers came up.
Here some config-infos:
:: Code ::
System:    Host: TowerLX Kernel: 3.8-0.towo-siduction-amd64 x86_64 (64 bit, gcc: 4.7.2)
           Desktop: Xfce 4.10.0 (Gtk 2.24.10) dm: kdm Distro: siduction 12.2.0 Riders on the Storm - xfce - (201212092126)
Machine:   Mobo: ASUSTeK model: M2N32-SLI DELUXE version: 1.XX serial: 123456789000
           Bios: Phoenix version: ASUS M2N32-SLI DELUXE 5002 date: 03/18/2010
CPU:       Dual core AMD Athlon II X2 250 (-MCP-) cache: 2048 KB flags: (lm nx sse sse2 sse3 sse4a svm) bmips: 12054.2
           Clock Speeds: 1: 1800.00 MHz 2: 800.00 MHz
Graphics:  Card: NVIDIA G92 [GeForce 8800 GT] bus-ID: 01:00.0 chip-ID: 10de:0611
           X.org: 1.12.4 driver: nvidia tty size: 140x48 Advanced Data: N/A for root

The monitors are 2 x 1280x1024 with panning/virtual resolution of 1600x1200 each. So alltogether with Xinerama enabled 3200x1200.

regards

Reiner

I'm guessing the new kernels have the header paths updated, or the guys who made them updated them so the link isn't necessary. But good to hear 313.18 works.

bugs.gentoo.org/447566 so I don't lose that gentoo link again, but it seems unnecessary for some systems.

I'd already created the symlink when I installed 310.32 so I guess I'll need -f when I next update the kernel . . . but, as you say, at least 313.18 is working

sgfxi makes that link when you use -f or are installing a new driver.

The new nvidia drivers will handle it, basically they will just include the patches in their installer scripts I assume.

The link isn't strictly needed if the installer knows where to look for the files I believe, though I could be wrong, but sgfxi makes the link with -f or new driver anyway.

I installed an antiX-3.8.0-gnu kernel and this time I needed sgfxi -f.

3 or 4 days ago I tried sgfxi and it failed. A "NVIDIA-173.14.36-kernel-3.7-3.8.patch" was used. The patch would apply successfully but the installer would stop with a "Unable to determine the NVIDIA kernel module filename" error. That was with the same siduction 3.8-0.towo-siduction-686-pae kernel I used today.

Here's the sgfxi.log from a couple days ago when it failed: dl.dropbox.com/u/18456966/sgfxi.log

I got it to work today by directly running installer with the --apply-patch option: `NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.36-pkg0.run --apply-patch <patch-name>` which created a NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.36-pkg0-custom.run file which I then ran.

ok, now I've updated the 173.14.36, which means I think that 173 is covered for 3.7 / 3.8, 304.64, and I believe 313.18 though I'm not positive about 313.18 / 3.7.6 or newer.

I removed the nvidia driver that I had installed manually, and ran you're updated sgfxi.
It built the nvidia driver okay, but it ended with "ERROR: (245) The nvidia installer exited with the error: 139".
Even with the error I was able to start X/KDE4 by running `service kdm start` and it seems to be working the same as before.
Here's the sgfxi.log with the "245" error: dl.dropbox.com/u/18456966/sgfxi-error245.log
