Same error on my machine...
I wonder wether I can disable this code as a workaround, because I don't use AGP at all...
Probably the member has just been renamed, in this case we would just need the new name to fix it (If it is the only error).

Commenting out usr/src/nv/os-agp.c:296 does not work. It fails in nv-i2c.c. I don't know my way around this driver at all enough to try and hack it.

This is just my opinion, probably not anything ya'll don't know, but it seems after every rc1 kernel release, there is a post about build problems, so I'm saying it anyway...

If you expect things to like, work... running an rc1 kernel in general is probably a bad idea...

I've been a compiling kernels for awhile, and I usually don't mess with them 'till around rc7 or 8.

(Of course if you are interested in actively developing the kernel or reporting kernel bugs that's different.)

Personally, I think the use of "rc" by the kernel devs is a bit strange. Perhaps I'm just a stickler that something called a "release candidate" should actually be "a candidate for release."

If you routinely do 8 or 9 of them...exactly how much of a candidate for release was RC1? Not much of one.

It seems to me RC1 is more like an Alpha, or maybe a Beta...it's the first mostly-working version after the merge window. Calling it a release candidate seem pretty misleading to me, just my opinion. Thoughts?

-Andy

Edit: While I'm ranting...<seinfeld>what's the deal with progress bars?</seinfeld> Ever seen an application that reaches 100% on a progress bar, only to pop up another progress bar, often with no indication of how many progress bars there will be?

Do developers realize that more then one progress bar defeats the purpose of progress bars? Does "100% Finished" really mean anything if you have to see it 5 times before it's actually done?

I have this weird idea that maybe a progress bar should indicate progress, rather than simply being a color-changing rectangle created to entertain me for who knows how long.

This isn;t directed at anyone in particular, just needed to be said. :b

According to Linus its not "release candidate" but "ridiculous count"

Usually there's a message from Linus on top of the changelog when he thinks it's going to be the last RC. I guess this is the right moment to give in to curiousity.
But well, one doesn't know the reasons behind those posts on this forum regarding failing build.
Might be interesting?

Lets not forget that there wouldn't be any rc2+ if nobody tests rc1. So we should appreciate if people make the effort to actually try it out and report problems.
