I found 2 patches in Mandriva repository. I integrated those and now it works. I'm attaching my version. Use:
Code:
$ sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-71.86.06-pkg1.run --apply-patch nvidia-71.86.06-2.6.27.patch.txt
Patched file will be called NVIDIA-Linux-x86-71.86.06-pkg1-custom.run.
Attached Files
File Type: txt nvidia-71.86.06-2.6.27.patch.txt (11.1 KB, 744 views)

I'm trying to get the patch for the 96.43.07 drivers so I can get 2.6.27 to work with them... when you said you found two patches in the Mandriva repo, can you post a link? I'd like to get the relevant patches for 96.43.07.

Thanks!

Get & extract this rpm source:

ftp://ftp.free.fr/pub/Distributions_...2009.0.src.rpm

You'll find 2 patches:

1 - nvidia71xx-71.86.06-2.6.27.patch

2 - nvidia71xx-71.86.06-kill_proc.patch

P.s.

Sorry for my very bad English, but i don't speak it.

Hi,

any news on this ? I'm also trying to patch the legacy drivers for 2.6.27

It's failing looking for semphore.h despite my having patched that snip from the above diff.

Keep us posted it you suss it.

TIA.

There are two obvious questions, which need answering, before anyone may be able to help you:
  1. Which legacy driver version do you use (71.x,96.x or the new legacy driver)?
  2. If it is one of the first two: Have you applied the patch as described above?
If only semaphore.c is your problem, then you should change the include in usr/src/nv/nv-linux.h (in the extracted nVidia driver source directory) from
Code:
#include <asm/semaphore.c>
to
Code:
#include <linux/semaphore.c>
But I guess, that all the other stuff (like kill_proc() (which is no longer there) and so on) is also going to trouble you subsequently.

Greetings,
C¨ran
