nVidia driver kernel 3.10


I’m not able to build kernel module for nVidia driver. I use driver 304.88 (last available for GeForce 6200) and kernel 3.10.1-2.gd30054a.
Here is part of log file of nvidia installer:

ERROR: Unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module.

Thanks for help.

You need to patch the nvidia driver to be able to install it on kernel 3.10.
See here f.e.: SlackBlogs: NVidia 304.88, VMWare Workstation, and Linux Kernel 3.10

I’m not able to install the patch:

socool:/home/socool/data/programy/nvidia/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-304.88 # patch -p1 < /home/socool/nvidia-linux-3.10.patch 
(Stripping trailing CRs from patch; use --binary to disable.)
patching file trunk/nvidia-linux-3.10.patch
patch unexpectedly ends in middle of line
patch: **** malformed patch at line 638:  

Seems like you’ve missed some lines.
Try this link to download the patch: https://projects.archlinux.org/svntogit/packages.git/patch/trunk/nvidia-linux-3.10.patch?id=787962153c92600e8a6d0756f026e6c9a87e48f8 (right-click on the link and choose “Save as…”)

Thanks for your help. I have patched the driver and it works corectly.
