Just installed the latest NVIDIA driver – 325.15 – and it compiles cleanly with 3.10 kernels, but fails with 3.11-rc..: /home/rgadsdon/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-325.15/kernel/os-interface.c: In function ‘os_get_system_memory_size’: /home/rgadsdon/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-325.15/kernel/os-interface.c:244:21: error: ‘num_physpages’ undeclared (first use in this function) return (((NvU64)NV_NUM_PHYSPAGES * PAGE_SIZE) / RM_PAGE_SIZE); ^ /home/rgadsdon/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-325.15/kernel/os-interface.c:244:21: note: each undeclared identifier is reported only once for each function it appears in /home/rgadsdon/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-325.15/kernel/os-interface.c:245:1: warning: … Continue reading →
Just compiled 3.8-rc2 on my test system, and the situation regarding NVIDIA and VMware is similar to -rc1.. For NVIDIA, the two ‘latest’ driver versions – 310.19 and 313.09 – fail to compile, but the earlier version – 310.14 – compiles OK.. Version 310.14 does not compile with kernel 3.7, so it would appear that the changes … Continue reading →
After more testing, I discovered that – unusually – the very latest driver (313.09) fails to compile with kernel 3.8-rc1, but an earlier driver – 310.14 – does compile OK! I won’t do too much more testing, as 3.8-rc1 breaks some KDE apps (see Linus’ angry rant on the LKML!). Hopefully 3.8-rc2 will be out soon.. Robert Gadsdon. … Continue reading →
Only recently updated to 3.6.4, and already 3.6.5 is released: $ uname -a Linux rglinux 3.6.5 #1 SMP Thu Nov 1 15:37:56 GMT 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux Runs fine, with VMware Workstation 9.0 (with the 3.5 patch) and the latest NVIDIA driver – 310.14.. See all the things that have been fixed: http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v3.0/ChangeLog-3.6.5 … Continue reading →
Kernel 3.4.0 just released… Not on kernel.org yet, so downloaded from github (https://github.com/torvalds/linux). The latest version of the NVIDIA linux drivers (295.53) already supports kernel 3.4x, and the latest ‘weltall‘ patch for VMware (8.0.3) also supports this kernel version, so should be good to go.. Now – to see what’s new/improved/fixed/broken! Update: compiled/installed, and everything seems to … Continue reading →
Just completed compile/creation of Bacula 5.2.6 armv5tel rpms from source rpm, on arm5 Dreamplug. Now I have the file daemon running on an arm system, to back-up files over the network to my x86_64 main system..
