h2 is saying that he's waiting confirmation of success.

I saw something suggesting kernel 3.10.1 may have a solution

kmathern, 3.10 patches added for 319.32, 325.08, and 173.14.37

These patches all download and run on the extracted package, but I have not tested to see if the patch itself actually works when building the driver. 325.08 was a weak patch derived from 319.32 but it is off by a few lines but the patch still works in my test.

If the patch does not work, find out why and where a patch that does work. Again, I do not test on the kernel and building the driver, all I test is that the patch physically runs on the extracted nvidia driver directory files.

All patches should run from inside the extracted directory, not on the actual single file, ie the path should be relative, starting with, for example, kernel/something.c

I will not offer patches for anything else unless you provide a tested patch for that driver, or a link to it after you test it.

nvidia GeForce 6150SE has no patch, that requires the 304 driver, which I did not yet find a patch for.. 304 is the legacy driver for 6/7xxxx nvidia cards.

319 does not support nvidia 6/7xxxx cards.

Thank you.

I didn't find anything to the contrary so I tried it.

Yes, I've been using 304.88.

nvidia cards 6/7xxx will never have current driver support, they are now legacy, so don't try to use a newer driver than the 304 series. You can try the 173 series if you want from time to time.

I have found a 304 patch that worked, as in it applies, more than that I cannot say, that's in sgfxi now.

So that covers all the versions that will be supported, 325/319/304/173.

If your driver downloads and patches correctly, and the module fails to build, you will need to find me a patch that does in fact work.

You're gaining on it!

Just did your latest 304.88 on 3.10-0.towo-siduction-686.

Needed a -f, but it is solid.

I'll try the other 3.10 kernels and 64amd tomorrow.

Thanks again!

Youse done good!

4.20.52 seems to have 304.88 working on Debian and towo's 3.10 kernels, 32 and 64, without a force.

Thanks!

note that nvidia just released the 325.15 driver for stable current cards, that does support 3.10 without a patch. It does not support prerelease kernel 3.11 from what I read on the interweb.

I suggest you wait to upgrade to new kernels until you know that 3.11 is supported by nvidia.

Fglrx, on the other hand, is still on their 13.4 release for stable, and did do a 13.8 beta release though I don't follow them much, no idea what's in the 13.8, but I can tell you this, don't buy amd gfx cards i you want support for new xorg/kernels, they appear to basically have stopped doing releases for all intents and purposes.
