Default Re: 169.09 Nvidia.ko build fails on newest 2.6.24 snapshot

171.05 fails to build with the same error.

Code:
/usr/src/nv/nv-vm.c: In function 'nv_flush_caches':
/usr/src/nv/nv-vm.c:364: error: implicit declaration of function 'global_flush_tlb'

Where did you find it? The latest beta driver I can see is 169.04.

I would have been surprised if it was different. I checked nv-vm.c days ago and found the code was the same, I expected it would be.

Sounds great :-) Any idea when this might be, btw?

I might note that the problem is also in 2.6.24-mm1, so perhaps more people will be affected shortly...

Best regards,

Unfortunately, an unexpected (mostly political) problem came up that's still unresolved.

Bummer, but does that mean "no patch", or just extended ETA (and extended by rougly how much time)?

Best regards,

well, i think when the 2.6.25 is final there will be an update/patch for sure

i hope they just wait until the first rc, then there will not be so many changes so fast and developing a patch will make more sense (even more if it's a big patch not done in 30mins or so)

As zander said, there are only little changes in the glue-layer necessary, not in the blob. I'm a little suspect about this cause of the error in rm_init_adapter, but if it's true, the patch will be rather small.
As I mentioned before, the problem with global_flush_tlb(), I was able to solve, I think. Now I'm waiting for the patch to see what needs to be updated too.
