Default 290.10 on 3.3-rc1 kernel

Can someone help me to get 290.10 driver working on 3.3-rc1 kernel?
There is no particular error, just that one where it says: "if you are using 2.4 kernel check for..." ; "if you are using 2.6 kernel check for... ".

I get the same thing with the 3.3-rc1 kernel and the 295.09 driver. I have been looking for some way to make it work, but I haven't found anything yet.

Here's a working (for me, anyway, on Arch linux x86_64) patch from weltall's link. If you're using the Nvidia installer, put it in the same directory, and then:
Code:
$ sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-295.09-no-compat32.run --extract-only
(use the actual name of your own Nvidia installer here)
Code:
$ cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-295.09-no-compat32
$ patch -p0 < ../kernel-3.3-rc1-patch.txt
you should see 'patching file kernel/conftest.sh' at this point
Code:
$ sudo ./nvidia-installer
that last step has to be done when you're not in X, as usual.

the result of not trying things i did the first too :P going to have a look
ok i've fixed it forgot the asm folder.
I've added also a simple bash script which does the first type of fix automatically and without looking much different than the normal install procedure

Thumbs up Re: 290.10 on 3.3-rc1 kernel

Using openSUSE 11.4 and compiling kernel 3.3-rc1 using my bash script sakc, I found the following terminal command to work if you use kernel-desktop & driver 290.10 or 295.9 and just finished compiling/installing the new kernel, but before you have tried to run it:

"cd /lib/modules/3.3.0-rc1-0.9-desktop/source/arch/x86/include ; sudo cp generated/asm/*.h ./asm"

OR

"cd /lib/modules/<kernel name>/source/arch/x86/include ; sudo cp generated/asm/*.h ./asm"

Copy and paste this command into a terminal session, less the quotes. The example I saw was wrong for this command if you wanted to use the asm files from where the nVIDIA script was looking as opposed to modifing the nVIDIA script to work properly with kernel 3.3 asm file locations. I assume this will be fixed in a future nVIDIA driver release for kernel 3.3 and the next nVIDIA driver to work together properly.

Here is a pointer to my bash script sakc: http://forums.opensuse.org/blogs/jdm...rsion-2-50-34/

I also have another useful script to install the nVIDIA driver the hard way as well call it in openSUSE: http://forums.opensuse.org/blogs/jdm...rsion-1-10-32/

And may I say to nVIDIA, thanks so much for your support of Linux. It is very much appreciated. You ROCK! in my Book!

Thank You,
