Kernel – 5.0-rc1 Released – Breaks NVIDIA and VMware.. — 5 Comments

  1. Patches for VMware 15.0.2, 14.1.5 and 12.5.9 are ready in (they have been, in fact, available in a testing branch (workstation-15.0.2-test) for few days already but I didn’t want to push them into the “official” branch as I didn’t know if the version is going to be 4.21-rc1 or 5.0-rc1).

  2. Change do_gettimeofday to efi_gettimeofday)
    in NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-410.25…9x/kernel/nvidia/os-interface.c is not work..

  4. I’m quite sure that I’ve probably over-complicated this patch but I threw it together quite haphazardly when trying out the new 5.0-rc1 back on release.

    I made the patch for 415.25, but the patch also seems to work with 415.27 just fine.
    Here’s the patch:

    And please excuse me if there’s already a fix out there, I checked but didn’t find anything after some light searching.

    • Many thanks for this.. I can’t find any other fixes, so far.
      Tested OK on 415.27 and Kernel 5.0-rc3 (see latest article..)
