Default 1.0-7167 for Linux x86/x86-64 updates

This thread collects updates for the NVIDIA 1.0-7167 x86/x86-64 driver releases.
  • NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-7167-1233959.diff.txt
    This patch fixes 2D/3D performance problems when using the Linux AGP driver, AGPGART; the built-in NVIDIA AGP driver, NvAGP, is not affected by this problem.

  • NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-7167-1237815.diff.txt
    This patch fixes a compile time error when building against Linux 2.6.11-bk3 or later, configured without support for AGPGART (i.e. CONFIG_AGP unset).

Each of these patches should apply individually, but it is recommended that you use the cumulative patch. This currently is NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-7167-03.11.2005.diff.txt (attached to this post). To apply this patch and install the updated driver, please follow the instructions below (note that -pkg0, -pkg1 and -pkg2 are interchangeable in this context).
For Linux/x86:

# sh /path/to/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7167-pkg0.run --extract-only
# cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7167-pkg0
# patch -p0 < /path/to/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-7167-03.11.2005.diff.txt
# modprobe -q agpgart <-- on Linux 2.6, only!
# ./nvidia-installer -n

For Linux/x86-64 (AMD64 and EM64T):

# sh /path/to/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-7167-pkg2.run --extract-only
# cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-7167-pkg2
# patch -p0 < /path/to/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-7167-03.11.2005.diff.txt
# modprobe -q agpgart <-- on Linux 2.6, only!
# ./nvidia-installer -n
If you wish to repackage the updated driver, please follow the instructions below (once again, -pkg0, -pkg1 and -pkg2 are interchangeable; -pkg1 and -pkg2 include pre-compiled kernel interfaces that need to be deleted, first); these steps will create the installer package NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7171-pkg1-custom.run:
For Linux/x86:

# rm -rf NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7167-pkg1/usr/src/nv/precompiled/
# sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7167-pkg1/usr/bin/makeself.sh \
--target-os Linux --target-arch x86 \
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7167-pkg1 \
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7167-pkg1-custom.run \
"NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86 1.0-7167 (custom)" \
./nvidia-installer

For Linux/x86-64 (AMD64 and EM64T):

# sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-7167-pkg2/usr/bin/makeself.sh \
--target-os Linux --target-arch x86_64 \
NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-7167-pkg2 \
NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-7167-pkg2-custom.run \
"NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86_64 1.0-7167 (custom)" \
./nvidia-installer
