Hello,
I just tried to upgrade to Kernel 3.10 (siduction).
The latest nvidia-driver 319.23 and the newest beta-driver (325.08) do not compile with this kernel yet. Neither via sgfxi nor manual calling of the ru-file.

Did go back to 3.9.8.

regards

Reiner

There is a patch for 325.08 (the new beta) here on the Nvidia forums.
I have not tried it myself but you could try it if it looks okay to you.

I think I will give it a try during the weekend.

Thanks and regards

Is this patch (easily) buildable into sgfxi?

there are at least 3 patches on that page, one is for 319, one for 325.

I can get these in provided that the patches actually work on standard kernels, there's also a question on that page about which kernel works on which patch.

A good patch can be run without any change directly inside the extracted driver directory. 2 of these look ok, one looks bad.

By the way, following the nvidia forum thread, I note that the patches are not working for people, so here's how it will work here:

List the kernel, only standard main branch kernels will be supported, no beta or pre stable releases will be supported, it's too time consuming and the kernels often change at stable release making tracking the stuff too hard.

Locate a patch for the kernel/driver in question, make sure it works on the driver package once extracted, then link me to that specific patch (NOT, note, to a thread that links to 4 or 5 patches where it is unclear which patch is meant for what). The patch must run inside of the unzipped directory, and it must be confirmed to work on that specific driver.

If there is a working patch for the 319 latest driver, include a link to that.

I had a big waste of time last time I ran patches for fglrx and something like a new kernel, and didn't get it working until I had a few patch sets applied, so I'm not anxious to repeat that experience.

In general, this will be how to get patches in sgfxi, download driver, extract, run patch directly inside of extracted directory, make sure it runs cleanly with no hunk failures, then make sure the driver actually works after install.

Sometimes there is a single patch, usually in fact there is for nvidia, but this one looks unclear and somewhat disorganized so I'm only going to use a patch in sgfxi once it has been confirmed to work by a tester running 3.10.

I think I have a patch that will work with the 3.10 kernel and the 173.14.37 legacy driver.

I used/extracted the 'fix-build-with-linux-3.10' patch file from a mageia src rpm file here: ftp://fr2.rpmfind.net/linux/mageia/distrib/cauldron/SRPMS/nonfree/release/nvidia173-173.14.37-4.mga4.nonfree.src.rpm. I did need to make some minor changes to the paths in that patch file.

Here's a dropbox link to my editted version of the 'fix-build-with-linux-3.10' patch: dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/18456966/fix-build-with-linux-3.10.patch

Below is the terminal output from extracting the .run installer (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.37-pkg1.run) and applying the patch.
:: Code ::
$ bash NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.37-pkg1.run -x

$ cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.37-pkg1

$ patch -p1 <../fix-build-with-linux-3.10.patch --verbose

The patched installer runs okay and installs the 173.xx driver on a siduction 3.10 kernel. I don't have any terminal output from that, but I can post the /var/log/nvidia-installer.log if you want it.

Below is the inxi report running from the siduction 3.10 kernel and using the 173.xx nvidia driver

The patched installer also works with the Debian 3.10 kernel that showed up in Debian Unstable/Sid yesterday. Actually the installer failed when I first tried it yesterday [I removed this post yesterday because of that]. The linux-kbuild-3.10 package received an update today ( 3.10-1 --> 3.10-2 ) and with that update the patched installer can now also build the 173.xx nvidia driver for the Debian 3.10 kernel. Here's it's inxi report:

thanks for the update, I'll add that in soon, maybe the other patches too for the current / beta drivers.

I'm not convinced the other ones though work, no verification yet.

Any update for sgfxi being able to build the 319.xx or 325.xx drivers on 3.10? Currently on 3.9.8 kernel still so waiting on verified patches before I upgrade the kernel.
