Exclamation 1.0-8756 and linux-kernel 2.6.16 remap_page_range bug resurfaces!

This is pretty much a request to nvidia to please issue a new patch for the 1.0-8756 kernel driver that's accomplishes what the U012206 patch does. Please referrence this thread.

I've already traced the problem back to this, so I'm not gonna post install logs, and etc., besides, I use Gentoo portage to manage this install. In short, the installer issues a warning about remap_page_range as an unknown symbol in Kernel 2.6.16 on x86_64 arch. The module builds/installs, but modprobe craps out when trying to load it. Patch please!

I don't have this problem here...
kernel 2.6.16.1 on x86_64 works with 1.0-8756

@blue666ma: 1.0-8756 shouldn't require any patching to work with Linux 2.6.16; please check if your problem persists if you install the NVIDIA kernel module using the NVIDIA installer. If it does not, please report it to the Gentoo package maintainer.

Default Where's my money going anyway?

Downloaded and ran the OEM installer. Ran --check and it says all the checksums are fine. The installer hangs immediately after accepting the licence. I tried -ae, same result. I even tried "-ae --UI=none" still the same bulls^&t. I then extracted the package and tried all of the above again with the nvidia-installer script; of course it's the same BS. Then I just went into the ./usr/src/nv directory and issued a "make module && make install" It compiles the module without a single warning and then it installs the module to the correct location, and then craps out, again, when it tries to load the module. Relavent section of dmesg:
Code:
nvidia: Unknown symbol pci_find_class
Not happy, not in the least

@blue666ma: please run the installer with the -K option and attach the /var/log/nvidia-installer.log file.

Hi,

I am using gentoo too, and kernel 2.6.16 and 2.6.16.1 just work fine.

Are you using vanilla kernels, gentoo-sources or -ck kernel? nitro? or something else patched-to-death?

blue666ma, does the installation hang if you run it with the -s switch instead?

Thanks,
Lonni

Default Re: 1.0-8756 and linux-kernel 2.6.16 remap_page_range bug resurfaces!

Still having problems.
I tried installing under both gentoo sources 2.6.15r1 and 2.6.15r7, same thing. The installer hangs completely after licence agreement. I also tried -s and -ns, nothing. The last working setup I had was nitro-sources 2.6.12-r5 && nvidia-kernel 1.0.8174, but I don't want to reinstall an old kernel, and it looks like every kernel I try > 2.6.12 fails.

Also tried going back to 1.0.8178, 1.0.8174 and even 1.0.7676. 8178 was "r3" in gentoo portage, meaning, all those patches were already applied:

NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-8178-1444349.diff
NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-8178-U011106.diff
NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-8178-U012206.diff
NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-8178-U122205.diff

Lo and Behold: same remap_page_range and pci_find_class issues; surprise, surprise....

BTW, every time I boot into another kernel, I do change ln -s /my/current/kernel /usr/src/linux, so don't go there.

AAARRRRRGGGG WTF?

Hi,

a) please try a vanilla kernel
b) please try the ebuilds.

Default The installer log is really not necessary...

Here's the installer log. Please note that in the future when I say that "the installer hangs after the licence agreement" I'm not joking. The installer doesn't work on any kernels > 2.6.12 on my box. Actually, I've tried all nvidia-kernel modules >= 1.0.7676, and all have failed. I may, however, have a possible cause, I removed smp support in my kernel's before re-compiling them. I used to have it in there in the hopes of one day putting a dual-core amd64X2 in there; right now, I just have a Athlon64 3000+. Anyway, the installer log:
