[SOLVED] nVidia won't build on recent Liquorix kernels

This turned into a crazy issue for me. I have been using the Debian nVidia driver packages since sgfxi stopped building the drivers successfully and I discovered the debian drivers succeeded. It worked for a while, but then at 4.14-6 IIRC it failed to build. I tried everything and finally started using nouveau. Then my computer started crashing regularly. So I tried reinstalling the Debian packages and it worked. Only for a few kernel releases though, then it's the same problem. So I tried installing nouveau and then the Debian packages again. But on next bootup it would freeze at the console and the screen would get a weird green tint. No response to attempts to switch terminals.

Even recovery mode wouldn't work, so I just got finished reinstalling Debian. But it looks like I might have the same problem all over again.

I get this in the nVidia build log:


echo >&2; \
echo >&2 " ERROR: Kernel configuration is invalid."; \
echo >&2 " include/generated/autoconf.h or include/config/auto.conf are missing.";\
echo >&2 " Run 'make oldconfig && make prepare' on kernel src to fix it."; \
echo >&2 ; \

Update your system, there is a wget bug that just got fixed in sid, finally, after way too long, that kept smxi from updating itself.

Or to work around the issue, do this:

:: Code ::
apt-get install curl
cd /usr/local/bin
rm smxi
wget smxi.org/smxi
chmod +x smxi

I did that. I still get the same missing file error, wget is the latest version.

sgfxi just worked, although I won't feel out of the woods until it keeps working on new kernels.

You didn't actually do it I believe, re replacing smxi, or it would have worked after you had installed curl.

Current sgfxi and smxi use the same exact logic for this wget bug, install curl as a dependency, then use curl as first downloader choice, then that issue doesn't happen.
