Default nvidia 180.60 and kernel 2.6.30.1

I upgraded to 2.6.30.1 and unfortunately, the nvidia driver (release 180.60) doesn't compile. I get this error:

/var/tmp/portage/x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-180.60/work/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-180.60-pkg2/usr/src/nv/os-agp.c: In function ‘KernLoadAGPPages’:

You can find the full build log in attachment.

Does anybody knows a solution to this problem ?

What happens if you upgrade to the latest stable driver (185.18.14)? I'm using that with 2.6.30.1 right now.

Or downgrade to 2.6.30? That one worked for me with 180.60 (even with AGP in the kernel, I think).

185.18.14 is very buggy. It isn't stable driver. 2.6.30.1 is latest stable kernel.

There is a solution if you don't need AGP support. If you disable it in the kernel configuration, the nvidia module can be compiled. You also have to disable GART IOMMU (in processor support) which can only be done if CONFIG_EMBEDDED is set (Configure standard kernel features in General setup).
