Default NVIDIA Xen 3.0 Patch for driver 100.14.11

I made a patch file for this driver from Luiz Vitor Martinez Cardoso [Grabber]'s post to the xensource list, he gets all the credit.

Apply via running 'patch -p0 < patch-xen3.0-nvidia100.14.11.txt' while in the usr/src/ directory.

Verified working on Ubuntu Feisty amd64 w/ latest updates.

Let us know how it works for you.

Thumbs up Re: NVIDIA Xen 3.0 Patch for driver 100.14.11

Works fine after reboot with opensuse 10.2.
Used this guide to get it working: http://en.opensuse.org/Use_Nvidia_driver_with_Xen

Default Re: NVIDIA Xen 3.0 Patch for driver 100.14.11

I tried this patch on RHEL5 and the patch didn't come up with any errors. But when I install it seems to fail at "make module". Has anyone been able to test this out with RHEL5? Here is the error log if anyone finds it helpful.

Default Re: NVIDIA Xen 3.0 Patch for driver 100.14.11

nvidia people, will this patch be included in upcoming driver versions?

the patch also works for lguest that is introduced in 2.6.23. However, my macbook(macbook patch also applied) reboots immediately when I view videos while lguest is running. it works when I use the x11 driver.

Default Re: NVIDIA Xen 3.0 Patch for driver 100.14.11

No, this patch won't be included in future driver releases. Please note that although doing so is unsupported, 100.14.11 can be built against RHEL5's Xen kernels without patches if the IGNORE_XEN_PRESENCE environment variable is set to a non-zero value (you may also need to create an include2 directory in the top-level directory of the kernel development files and place an asm symlink to /usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-8.el5-xen-i686/include/asm-i386 in it). Mileage with other Xen kernels will vary. I do not believe the Xen patches posted for 100.14.11 are correct. I hope to take a look at providing one for Fedora Core 7, etc., at some point in the future.

This would be great if you had some pointers/info about this as I'm dying to get this working on my system. In the meantime I'm pursuing the links/posts I can find on the net.

It works for gentoo with a little bit of symlink magic. Great feature, took me less than 10 minutes to get the driver running with xen-3.1.

Default Re: NVIDIA Xen 3.0 Patch for driver 100.14.11

I followed the short instructions I found here (but my link points to asm-x86_64), exported IGNORE_XEN_PRESENCE and got an error from the installer that no sources are installed.
Well, that is a thing I really don't understand because
Code:

If I change 2 lines in NVidia*/usr/src/nv/conftest.sh the moduleinterface compiles and it works to load the module, but the attempt to start X ends with a kernelpanic.
The changes:

Default Re: NVIDIA Xen 3.0 Patch for driver 100.14.11

does the 100.14.11 driver patch work with the 2.6.20-2931.fc7xen kernel? I'm getting all sorts asm errors and dependency issues when I try to build against this.

I am attempting to configure Xen 3.1 with the nvidia drivers (100.x series). Could you provide more details about how you got this working?

Thanks.
