Note, new nvidia drivers should take care of this issue, if not, it's definitely, almost, a siduction kernel issue.

331.20/304.116 are now in sgfxi, no patches required.

and that should be that for this issue, hopefully.

331.20 installs OK on 3.11-6 siduction . . . . but not on 3.11 or 3.12 aptosid

File a bug report with slh, and of course, he'll respond that he doesn't care about your needs as a user since nvidia is non free, nothing related to nvidia issues is a valid bug. Been there, done that, and that's why I left those guys years ago.

Or keep using his kernel, which offers as far as I know no benefit over liquorix/siduction kernels.

Not sure whether this should or shouldn't work, but I tried 3.12-0.towo-siduction-686-pae with 331.20 and it wouldn't install so I've gone back to 3.11-6

drb, I've received confirms that the siduction kernel isn't working with nvidia, but on another blog, the person reports 331.20 compiles fine with vanilla 3.12 kernel, so it appears that maybe something in the siduction configuration is off or different, can you see if towo can figure that out? Antix kernel is reporting the same failure.

Agan, vanilla is reported working, so it's possible some patch or other is making the driver fail.

I'm holding off adding a fix until I figure out what is going on, I know what it takes to make it work but I don't to add fixes unless they are truly needed.

hello All.
aptosid user, using kernel: 3.11-2.slh.2-aptosid-amd64, sgfxi script version: 4.22.04.
New driver 331.20 cannot be installed, went back to 325.15. Here sgfxi logs :
331 pastebin.com/2HYW3yc8
320 pastebin.com/TBbA5MWf

Any hint/suggestion?
Having seen this thread I hoped this issue was solved ...

Thanks and ... Best Wishes for 2014 :-)

This was because aptosid started using the unified memory compile flag in 3.11, I thought it was 3.12.

sgfxi should now work, I updated it to add that flag when the compile option is present for not just 3.12, but also 3.11 and 3.13, to be on the safe side.

Times like this makes me glad I add more and more logging to sgfxi as times go by, makes it increasingly easy to find failure causes, not always of course, but it sure helps.

WoW, thanks a lot, it really works now :-)

Is there any need to purge previous installed nvidia driver (325.15 and previous ...)?

Again thanks for a so great and fast support.

sgfxi always cleans up/removes all other nvidia drivers before installing. In other words, for standard driver installs, this should in general be all that is required:

:: Code ::
sgfxi


The only issue here is that I first got the report of this not working on 3.12 aptosid, and no other issues were reported on 3.11, so I assumed this was a new 3.12 flag, apparently it was introduced earlier, 3.11.

Why nobody reported issues on 3.11 is beyond me, it's possible it was an early release feature that aptosid decided to activate when nobody else did, I can't say the reason.
