Default Re: 2.6.15-git1 build problems with 8178

Yes. I had been using the 8174 driver, but when I built 2.6.15-git1 (my previous kernel build was 2.6.15-rc7-git6), it failed (as the first poster stated). My build failed as the first posters had, with file src/nv/os-interface.c line 1375 expected to have a structure with a member rlim (but alas, rlim is no longer there), and so the driver install went kaput! I found and tried the new driver (81.78) but it too fails to install on 2.6.15-git1 (it does work well on 2.6.15-rc7-git6 though). I took a few good looks at patch-2.6.15-git1 to see if I could find which patch broke things, but I didn't find rlim mentioned anywhere in the patch (even as a --line). There are a few changes to usb video, but nothing to agp. My best guess is the change to linux/videodev.h (but I haven't tested yanking individual patches and I'm only about 10% confident about my guess).
