Default Re: Unable to compile for kernel 2.6.29

problem is caused by the changes to the latest -git. Reference to "owner" was removed
solution was posted here already at Nvidia forum:
extract nvidia
edit
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-18x.xx-pkg1/usr/src/nv/nv.c

comment out all the lines that will refer to owner. e.g.:
/*entry->owner = THIS_MODULE;*/
then run
nvidia-installer -N -s
from
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-18x.xx-pkg1/
this works with all previous and current kernels (which have this problem, this will not resolve anything else)
