Default Re: Nvidia Beta driver 1.0-9625

@energyman76b: OK, I believe I understand what the problem is; to work around it, you can either unload the eeprom kernel module (it can be reloaded after X has been started for the first time) or patch 1.0-9625 with the attached patch, which removes the added i2c functionality.

To apply this patch, you will need to extract the 1.0-9625 driver:
# ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9625-pkg1.run -x

then it can be patched:
# cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9625-pkg1/
# patch -p0 < ../NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-9625-NOSMBUS.diff.txt

and finally installed:
# ./nvidia-installer -s
