Kernel – 5.9-rc – Preliminary Testing – Breaks VMware and NVIDIA, and VirtualBox.. — 4 Comments

  1. Just to be clear, the patch mentioned above is for Nvidia. I’ve tried it on k5.8.1 successfully but not yet on k5.9-rc.

    • Thanks for the direct link – for some reason, it isn’t shown on the main snippets/user menu I had bookmarked.
      NVIDIA 450.57 compiles OK with Kernel 5.8.1 without any patch..

  2. The NR_SLAB_UNRECLAIMABLE issue is trivial and I have it patched in tmp/workstation-16 branch but it’s kind of pointless as current Workstation/Player is not going to work anyway.
