Default 1.0-8178 for x86-64/em64t and x86 updates (01-22-2006)

The patch attached to this post addresses known problems with the 1.0-8178 NVIDIA Linux x86 and x86-64 graphics driver releases.

To patch 1.0-8178 and install the updated driver, please follow the instructions for your platform below (the steps needed to update the -pkg* packages not shown are analogous to the examples shown below).

Linux/x86:

# sh /path/to/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8178-pkg1.run --extract-only
# cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8178-pkg1
# patch -p0 < /path/to/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-8178-U012206.diff.txt
# ./nvidia-installer -n
Linux/x86-64:

# sh /path/to/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8178-pkg2.run --extract-only
# cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8178-pkg2
# patch -p0 < /path/to/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-8178-U012206.diff.txt
# ./nvidia-installer -n

The updated 1.0-8178 driver can optionally be repackaged into custom .run packages. To do this, please follow the instructions for your platform below:

Linux/x86:

# cd ../
# rm -rf NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8178-pkg1/usr/src/nv/precompiled
# sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8178-pkg1/usr/bin/makeself.sh \
--target-os Linux --target-arch x86 \
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8178-pkg1 \
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8178-pkg0-custom.run \
"NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86 1.0-8178" \
./nvidia-installer
Linux/x86-64:

# cd ../
# sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8178-pkg2/usr/bin/makeself.sh \
--target-os Linux --target-arch x86_64 \
NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8178-pkg2 \
NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8178-pkg2-custom.run \
"NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86_64 1.0-8178" \
./nvidia-installer
