Compile against newest kernels
 
Hi,

today I chose to compile a 2.6.32 from linux-next.git (see kernel.org).

It seems that they changed some files, just to announce you:

linux/autoconf.h is now in generated/autoconf.h

After fixing a problem in nv_acpi.h, as one argument was missing, the 195.22 kernel builds (with some warnings now, but its working).

If you would put the sources into a SCM too, I would try to patch your development tree too. Maybe I will put the latest stuff into a git repo next days...

Hi Ingo,

I just had the same problem with Linus's git kernel, so I added an extra NULL argument to acpi_walk_namespace(). It compiles okay but when I run glxgears I get this error:

Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Error: couldn't get an RGB, Double-buffered visual

What was your fix, and can you run glxgears?

Thanks!

No, sorry, this error message is typical, while loading the X11 glx extension.
Check your Xorg.?.log.

You have to install the whole NVIDIA package with up to date GLX libraries.
I did it by executing the nvidia-installer in -e (expert mode). It was quite simple.
I tried glxgears and eve-online. Both worked fine.

Hm. Today glxgears is working normally. No idea why it didn't work yesterday.
