    Cool Re: Linux Kernel 3.3 RCX has Been Released To Test - Post Your Comments Here!

    So, just wanted to mention that the nVIDIA driver 295.20 has been released and it is working fine with kernel-3.3-rc3 without making any changes to kernel source file locations. You can find links to the latest driver here: Installing the nVIDIA Video Driver the Hard Way - Blogs - openSUSE Forums AND I have released Yet Another SuSE Bash Utility (YaSBU), intended to work with DKMS to install the nVIDIA driver for you and I can confirm its working with openSUSE 11.4 and kernel 3.3-rc3 and nVIDIA driver 295.20. Read more about the bash script here: S.A.N.D.I. - SuSE Automated NVIDIA Driver Installer - Version 1.10 - Blogs - openSUSE Forums

    Thank You,

    Smile Re: Linux Kernel 3.3 RC4 has Been Released To Test - Post Your Comments Here!

    Kernel Source file for 3.3-rc4 was released today. I found no mention at the H yet, but another was here: [Phoronix] Linux 3.3-rc4 Kernel Fixes A Peculiar 32-bit Bug AND rc4 installed just fine under openSUSE 11.4 and with nVIDIA driver 195.20 installed all is well so far.

    Also, while I had thought I no longer needed to do this, to get the nVIDIA driver to install, I had to run the following command:

    Code:
    cd /lib/modules/3.3.0-rc4-0.9-desktop/source/arch/x86/include ; sudo cp generated/asm/*.h ./asm
    or (As your name may vary)

    Code:
    cd /lib/modules/<kernel version>/source/arch/x86/include ; sudo cp generated/asm/*.h ./asm
    Thank You,

    So far as I know, I was to remind it in kernel mailing list, well, server down.

    If you build NVIDIA 295.20 kernel module against 3.3rc4 kernel in Kernel:HEAD with debuginfo symbols on, you will get errors in 282, 284 and 295 lines of kernel/nv-linux.h, which were "NV_ACPI_WALK_NAMESPACE_ARGUMENT_COUNT" and "NV_ACPI_WALK_NAMESPACE_ARGUMENT_COUNT value unrecognized!". <= 3.2 is okay with that. so it must be a kernel affair.

    you can also modify NVIDIA-Linux-x86*/kernel/confest.sh, find CFLAGS= and add -I**include/generated/ thing there.

    Smile Re: Linux Kernel 3.3 RC4 has Been Released To Test - Post Your Comments Here!

    I agree with the second fix you mention, but the first was easy to perform using a bash script as follows:

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    
    #: Title       : userfix
    #: Date Created: Sun Feb 19 12:24:18 CST 2012
    #: Last Edit   : Sun Feb 19 12:24:18 CST 2012
    #: Author      : James D. McDaniel
    #: Version     : 1.00
    #: Description : 
    #: Options     : 
    
    version=$(uname -r | cut -c -3)
    folder="/lib/modules/$(uname -r)/source/arch/x86/include"
    if [ "$version" == "3.3" ] ; then
      if [ -d "$folder" ] ; then
        cd $folder 
        cp generated/asm/*.h ./asm
        echo
        echo "Kernel Fix for nVIDIA driver was executed!"
        echo
      fi
    fi
    
    exit 0
    
    # End Of Script
    I then have added the following line to my /etc/init.d/after.local script file.

    Code:
    # Run User kernel source fix file
    
    if [ -f /usr/local/bin/userfix ] ; then
      /usr/local/bin/userfix
    fi
    Since I play around with kernel versions all of the time, this fix only applies if its a 3.3 kernel.

    Kernel.org has just released kernel-3.3-rc5 today. You can get it here: http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kern....3-rc5.tar.bz2

    I have just compiled and installed it using SAKC, you can find here: http://forums.opensuse.org/blogs/jdm...rsion-2-50-34/

    And I am using the new SANDI script with DKMS to reapply the nVIDIA driver into new kernel: http://forums.opensuse.org/blogs/jdm...sion-1-00-103/

    You still must apply the fix I mention in message #25 here after you load the new kernel. I have found new info on kernel 3.3 at the H Open Source:



    Kernel Log: Coming in 3.3 (Part 2) - Filesystems and storage - The H Open Source: News and Features

    Hopefully you are able to read this stuff even with the many gateway errors we seem to be having on this Saturday 2-25-12.

    Not sure what the deal is, but just in case others run into this with 3.3.0 RC5 the generated directory isn't in:
    /lib/modules/3.3.0-rc4-0.9-desktop/source/arch/x86/include
    I don't know if its a mistake in packaging or not, but I found mine in:
    /usr/src/linux-3.3.0-rc5-1-obj/x86_64/desktop/arch/x86/include/generated/

    source in the first one is really just a symlink to something in /usr/src

    Not sure why it got split out into the -obj directory

    It kind of makes you wonder if there will be other problems with rc5?

    This change you have found seems to exist in all 3.3 rc versions as far as I know. Its the reason the nVIDIA driver will not compile. I am running the following code to move source files around.

    Code:
    version=$(uname -r | cut -c -3)
    folder="/lib/modules/$(uname -r)/source/arch/x86/include"
    if [ "$version" == "3.3" ] ; then
      if [ -d "$folder" ] ; then
        cd $folder 
        cp generated/asm/*.h ./asm
        echo
        echo "Kernel Fix for nVIDIA driver was executed!"
        echo
      fi
    fi

    Sure, what I was getting at is that there is appears to be a difference even between rc4 and rc5 at least on openSUSE.

    Smile Linux Kernel 3.3 RC6 has Been Released To Test - Post Your Comments Here!

    I have compiled/loaded the latest RC kernel release kernel-3.3-rc6 using SAKC onto my newly installed copy of openSUSE 12.1 (up from 11.4 after a hard drive failure of /home). All is working fine after the update. I have installed the latest nVIDIA driver 295.20 using SANDI and DKMS. Nothing new to report as the rc6 just seems to work fine for me.
