Just installed the new 38-kernel but it's not possible to generate the nvidia module, always gives a failed message. I use the frickelplatz 270.26 nvidia-kernel-source.

not an upgrade-warning, as .38 is not released. moved to dragons.

The aptosid Kernel has a patch in, which prevent the nvidia kernelmodule to build.

ups, missed the .38 release. Smile
nvidia qualifies for dragons anyways.

Same here.

The error I get is "include/generated/autoconf.h or include/config/auto.conf is missing" and suggests to insert and recompile.

infobash -v3

Gotta admit, that spooked me a little.

Removed the kernel meta package. Think I'll stay with 2.6.37 for a little while until it hopefully gets sorted out

The patch is 0019-BKL-That-s-all-folks.patch which is purging all bkl-related headers, which are useless now, since the kernel is build without bkl. The problem now is, nvidia noes not need bkl itself, but the module are including some headers, which are not exist after applying this patch.

I understand that nvidia driver is closed source, but aptosid devs should take into account that a lot of aptosid users are using nvidia...

Full ack.
I can't imagine, why aptosid includes this patch, which is proposed to aplyed upstream in 2.6.39 or maybe 2.6.40.
That's full against the users of aptosid.

I fully agree with you towo.
A kernel that does not support my nvidia card is useless for me

Yep. My problem is that I really need a recent driver in order to profit from CUDA. Therefore my only option is installing the proprietary driver downloaded from the NVIDIA website. If the Aptosid kernel is not going to work, I will try to install the vanilla kernel (again).

I also I need nvidia for VDPAU hardware acceleration. Using nouveau is not an option.

I'm not using nvidia driver now.
But if it does not actually use BKL, but just the module does not build without some kernel option,
then isn't it easier to fix the source of module than building a private kernel for that?

(assuming that the source for module, to be locally compiled is open source and downloadable...
and the closed source driver itself does not deends on the kernel option..)

My suggestion is to stick with 2.6.37 and to opt out of automatic kernel upgrades. I'm sure that slh will issue a new kernel momentarily that fixes the problem... if not perhaps we can encourage towo to do some kernel magic.
