Overlay: http://ck.dbdfleet.net/nvidia-kernel-1.0.6111-r1.tar.bz2

Problem was pci_find_class switched to pci_get_class, re-emerge nvidia-kernel (mine is badged as -r1 as there is only the first revision available at time of writing)

*edit: YES!!! finally, the nvidia drivers on mm again! Works even faster now then on nitro-6. Especially the hard-disk-activity problem I've been having.. Thank you!

Please i know i am a n00b plese tell me how to fix the damm nvidia thing.

I am trying to get gentoo to run over a week now, and i need the 2.6.9-rc1 kernel to have acpi for my mobo, but i need this fix, tell me how to apply it please ;-)

Edit
Ok, i llike the search function of this forum, but some information needs to be more obvious i think. The description i used is this one to install the patch :
Edit

Quote:

By the way why do you take a 2.4.20 kernel and try to patch it with gentoo's patches for 2.4.22-r5 ? the emerge gentoo-sources applies all the patches by itself.

Ok, let's suppose you have a good reason and would really like to have a 2.4.20 with the latest gentoo-sources-patches.

Well, you may find that a bit strange, but here it is: I don't know how to patch a kernel, but I know how to modify an ebuild ... so here is how to make an ebuild for your own kernel's flavor
uncomment the line PORTDIR_OVERLAY=/usr/local/portage in your /etc/make.conf
then create the /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/my-sources/ directory
and copy one of the ebuild so that you don't have to type everything from scratch:
cp /usr/portage/sys-kernel/gentoo-sources/gentoo-sources-2.4.22-r5.ebuild /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/my-sources/my-sources-2.4.20.ebuild

then edit the lines lines of this my-sources-2.4.20.ebuild that contain gentoo-sources-${PVR}.patch.bz2 to replace them by gentoo-sources-2.4.22-r5.patch.bz2

that is to say:
UNIPATCH_LIST="${DISTDIR}/gentoo-sources-2.4.22-r5.patch.bz2"
and SRC_URI="mirror://kernel/linux/kernel/v2.4/linux-${OKV}.tar.bz2
http://dev.gentoo.org/~iggy/gentoo-sources-2.4.22-r5.patch.bz2"

then you just have to emerge my-sources, it will fetch the kernel, the patches, apply everything and put it in the right directory

the nvidia kernel works now without reporting any error, But the Nvidia glx extensions wont load for the x server, he just stops, eg. displays the nvida logo and exits with the message could not load the glx extensions ...

AGP mode is falling back to 2x i see in dmesg, i use the 865 chipset driver.

Evrything in dmesg seems to be fine now, no error reporting, and if i cat the nvidia settings at proc he states my ti4600 which runs perfectly ok on my win XP partition even with agp 4x....

Is there some option to set the agp mode at the kernel boot ? Ok silly questing i search the forums, and if i dont find anything i edit this post ;-)

As I've commented on http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=62474

This fix is to rudimentary for the portage tree -- We need something that is going to be backward compatible. Ive made up a patch and attached it to the above bug, it would be nice if some people can test it out in both 2.6.9 and 2.6.<9 kernels

It works here and if it works for others ill put it in the tree (which I'd like to have happen before 2.6.9 is released)

PostPosted: Thu Sep 16, 2004 5:10 pm    Post subject: Overlays... Reply with quote

For those curious on how to create an overlay, here are the steps you can take to get this into your tree.

(NOTE: I don't have an nvidia to test these steps... so if I mistyped a step or it doesn't work, post the problem and we should be able to get it fixed)

Create the overlay:
Code:
DIR=/usr/portage/overlay
mkdir $DIR
echo "PORTDIR_OVERLAY=$DIR" >> /etc/make.conf

Add the nvidia overlay:
Code:
cd $DIR
wget -O - http://ck.dbdfleet.net/nvidia-kernel-1.0.6111.tar.bz2 | tar xjv

Set up the keyword mask for this package so you can use it (its masked ~x86)
Code:
if [ ! -d /etc/portage ]; then mkdir /etc/portage; fi
echo "media-video/nvidia-kernel ~x86" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords

emerge away...
Code:
emerge -up nvidia-kernel
# Verify that it is going to install 1.0.6111-r1
emerge -u nvidia-kernel


And away you go... good luck.

James

Seems clean enough, not sure if you can do an #ifdef FUNC at all..

With kernel 2.6.9-rc2-mm1 I get this:
nvidia: Unknown symbol __VMALLOC_RESERVE

Using GCC 3.4.2, I'll try the kernel with GCC 3.3.4 too.

Does anybody has a workaround for that?

Won't that vmalloc-reserve patch cause 'Symbol redefined' warnings with kernels other than 2.6.9-rc2?
What about a configure test like the other one?

I'll say if it works when I restart. Compiling OOXimian for some hours.
EDIT: OK, finished. Restarting... (due to gcc 3.4 vs 3.3) Wish me luck. ;-)

(BTW, kexec is great. :-) I've created /etc/init.d/kexec and modded /etc/init.d/reboot.sh. Now I only need to add an ebuild and have some testers. Works great here.)

I'm hoping and praying that nvidia wont break others with the vmalloc patch.

Worked fine for me against => 2.6.9-rc2-mm1.

Is that cd writer bug still lingering? Or is it just me?

How do you use kexec? Can you post your scripts?

Thanks!!

Your patch works fine here too.

Kexec-tools ebuild is available here: link
It will speed up your restart time and allow you to easily boot different kernel images.
Add it like this: rc-update add kexec default

Don't forget to check the config file in /etc/conf.d/kexec
By default, this kexec script sets itself to boot your current kernel from /boot/vmlinuz-`uname -r` (to suit make install), you can of course override it in config file or on command line:
KNAME="mygentookernel" KPARAM="elevator=none" /etc/init.d/kexec restart
To disable kexec, you don't stop it, but instead:
KNAME="-" /etc/init.d/kexec restart

If you have a kernel image named -, please tell me. :roll:

kexec is cool but for the average user without it patched in or without it enabled.. i find a reboot is just as painless..

The script doesn't interfere with normal rebooting in any way if there's no kexec
and as such could probably be added to portage.
Maybe kexec will be included in 2.6.9, who knows.
