Default Re: Changes to (very) recent Linux kernel break things.

The difference between 9625 and 9626 is in support for Quadro Plex.

Default Re: Changes to (very) recent Linux kernel break things.

So if the only fix between 9625 and 9626 is Quadro Plex (and since I don't know what it is my assumption is I don't need it) is it safe to install 9625 I understanding it is still in beta and that this means it will be in a beta state, but more questioning that the differences between 9625 and 9626 are isolated to a feature I don't need.

I would still like to install 9626 instead of 9625 but without a download link/location I don't know where to go.

Thanks,

jb

PS if this is not the right forum to be asking these questions please direct me to the right place and I will ask in the proper forum.

I saw this link posted somewhere. Don't know why nvidia does not officially announce this.

The link has 9625 listed as available for download. Not 9626. Being a developer myself I know how frustrating it can be to try and help someone only to find out they are using an old version. Because of that I would like to use 9626.

The patch given in this thread no longer seems to work with 2.6.19-rc4. Can anyone confirm?

Unhappy Re: Changes to (very) recent Linux kernel break things.

I honestly don't understand, suffering the same problem as above no compile same error.
I have both files:
include/linux/autoconf.h and include/config/auto.conf
Both kernel and development are 686.
Would a sym. link between them actuall fix the problem or make things worse in the long run.
Any idea of release date of fixed driver?

Thanks everyone and most of all you.... NVIDIA.... YOU RULE.

OK that is the x86 version. Is there a x86_64 version. I tried quite a few variations of the url, but none hit on the download for the 64 version.

Thanks for all the information

Default Re: Changes to (very) recent Linux kernel break things.

OK so now I'm confused. I thought the fix for linux/config.h error was part of the 9626 package? Is that only in the x86 version? Not the x86_64? Or the step to decompress and comment out only work for the 9625 or 9626 packages?

Thanks as usual for the infomation

That issue isn't fixed in any released driver. It will be resolved in the next released driver.
