Default Re: "Failed to allocate DMA push buffer" on amd64 with 1.0-8762

It looks like you're using a 32-bit X server on the 64-bit system and that the DMA push buffer's address is being truncated in the 32-bit NVIDIA X driver. Does the problem go away if you boot with e.g. mem=2G? If so, can you try if the attached workaround helps (w/o mem=??)? To apply the workaround and install the updated driver, please use:

# sh /path/to/ --extract-only
# cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8762-pkg2
# patch -p0 < /path/to/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-8762-1476108.diff.txt
# cd usr/src/nv
# make clean install
This problem should be resolved in future NVIDIA Linux graphics driver releases.
