Question MM Kernel Mod Compilation Issue (linux-2.6.25-rc8-mm1, 169.12+) [patch was supplied]

EDIT: Have not tried Valdis's patch yet, will report back at some point hopefully!

Hi All, thanks for having me here at your forums!

I have received a compile time error from the .run NVIDIA installer on an {EDIT: MM VARIANT}-rc kernel. I patched the 2 installers with the patch from the sticky here and ran both with expert mode install option. Both produced similar looking nvidia-installer logfile output, however, I'm no expert in that and that's what I'm looking for your help on here please.

My system; Arch Linux with stock and custom ( kernels. I built an 169.12 nvidia.ko module against successfully for this realtime kernel I'm running now. My kernel builds were done outside the Arch packaging system. Default Arch kernel .config was modified heavily/quickly

I built a 2.6.25-rc8-mm1 kernel using the recent patch and then tried to build against this. Error was different before patching the stock .run file. 171.06 also fails for me ?at?


I will attach the logs for my 169.12 patched installer, with the 171.06 patched installer (was looking to try the glyph cache out and see if 2 or 4 setting works for me). Either one may answer my question. Any other info I can also add in further posts below.

This one looks technical to me folks I don't have experience with the make output really at the moment to properly parse it fully. Please give me a hand here Back on 169.12 on a 2.6.24-rt4 for now.

Thanks for your time !!! Havent done this kind of thing for a while ,,,
