No news about VDPAU and Flash problems, though. Sad.

Also, there is still no 3.0.1 Linux Kernel support (3.0.0 maximum, lol)
Had to change the line in nv-linux.h

Funny, installed without complaining on my 3.0.1 system.

Sorry, I thought I would install it without issues but couldn't
I compiled the latest 3.0.3, but got this:

Quote:
ERROR: If you are using a Linux 2.4 kernel, please make sure
you either have configured kernel sources matching your
kernel or the correct set of kernel headers installed
on your system.

If you are using a Linux 2.6 kernel, please make sure
you have configured kernel sources matching your kernel
installed on your system. If you specified a separate
output directory using either the "KBUILD_OUTPUT" or
the "O" KBUILD parameter, make sure to specify this
directory with the SYSOUT environment variable or with
the equivalent nvidia-installer command line option.

Depending on where and how the kernel sources (or the
kernel headers) were installed, you may need to specify
their location with the SYSSRC environment variable or
the equivalent nvidia-installer command line option.
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file
'/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions
on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
driver download page at www.nvidia.com.
Could someone please help ?

I'm using Debian Squeeze. The same thing happens to me with all 3.0.x versions of kernel.

Would be nice if someone have pushed an update

Yes, I have changed the relevant portion in nv-linux.h. The only string I had to change is:

#elif LINUX_VERSION_CODE < KERNEL_VERSION(3, 0, 0)

to

#elif LINUX_VERSION_CODE < KERNEL_VERSION(4, 0, 0)

And it didn't help

Copy and past over what is there in the post to nv-linux.h and see if that works.

There is nothing to change in the source.
The driver builds without problem up to 3.1-rc2.

No, I can't install it

The same error:

I'm loosing my nerve already. I copy/pasted the portion, Dizzle7677, since I've found another thing with "<" symbol which I missed previously. But all in vain... I've even tried running the latest beta binary (with and without changing the nv-linux.h file). I just don't know why this happen to me

Could there be any GCC issues or something? 'Cause I'm running Debian Squeeze (Stable) without any messing with testing or unstable repos, just a clean Debian Stable. Everything is fine on all other Kernel versions...

P.S. Btw, should I place the extracted NVIDIA folder somewhere specifically or just run the installer within my home folder?

Que strange! Running the extracted run file from a different location isn't going to do anything. If it was a gcc problem then I'd hope the log would say that. Stable driver still the same thing?
