I applied the patch to 195.30 which produced NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-195.30-pkg2-custom.run which works.

Linus has now released 2.6.33-rc2 and with either Anssi's patch above or pavlinuxx's patch http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show....php?p=2140046 but NOT both, I can now get the current beta driver 195.30 to build. Running it now on Archlinux 64 and all seems well. From shortly before 2.6.33-r1 until today I couldn't get nvidia 195.22 or 195.30 to build, with any combination of patches.

Besides the patch, you will need to cd to the source directory and do the following:

cp include/generated/utsrelease.h include/linux/.

The reason is that the nVidia installer looks for utsrelease.h in include/linux, but 2.6.33 does not create this file.

This post belongs at the end of the thread - I'm new here.

My patch already modifies the driver to look for utsrelease.h in /generated/.

Smile Re: 2.6.33-rc1 kernel and 195.22 driver

Here is a short inline patch for sorting 2.6.33-rc1 and 2.6.33-rc2 git tree issues with the 195.22 and 190.xx drivers.

The attached patch is an alternate that forces to look for generated/utsrelease.h and works fine with my set of drivers and git source trees. I had trouble with the earlier patch I found here, so I made this one which works.

Apply the patch as you would have applied the last one to create NVIDIA-Linux-x86-190.53-pkg1-custom.run which will install for the 2.6.33-rc2 or 2.6.33-rc1 kernels or the relevant git trees.

For what?
This patch works also with 2.6.33-rc3.

Lightbulb Re: 2.6.33-rc1 kernel and 195.22 driver

Here is another version of the patch. I noticed that 190.xx and 195.xx have the conftest.sh script written differently. These are trivial patches for both nVidia drivers to work with 2.6.33-rc? tested out with 2.6.33-rc1 to 2.6.33-rc4.

The patches can be applied with
Code:
./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-190.53-pkg1.run --apply-patch nvidia-190.53-2.6.33.patch.txt
./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-195.30-pkg1.run --apply-patch nvidia-195-2.6.33.patch.txt
After applying either of these patches
Code:
./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-190.53-pkg1-custom.run
./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-195.30-pkg1-custom.run
All these touch nvacpi.c and conftest.sh inside usr/src/nv. These were not tested with the 64-bit versions.

The patch posted by betasam worked with 195.30 and 2.6.33 rc5 64bit.

Thanks!

Default Re: 2.6.33-rc1 kernel and 195.22 driver

The patch is not working for me on Fedora-Rawhide with 195.30 and 2.6.33-0.23.rc5.git1.fc13.x86_64.. I don't see a "generated" directory anywhere?

I can find a:
/usr/src/kernels/2.6.33-0.23.rc5.git1.fc13.x86_64/include/linux/autoconf.h
but no:
utsrelease.h
in any recent kernel.

Last kernel that worked for me is 2.6.32.2-18.fc13.x86_64

Suggestions?

I was premature.... The patched 195.30 works on Fedora-Rawhide x86_64 after I upgraded to:
kernel-2.6.33-0.24.rc5.git1
dracut-004-5
from Koji.
