Are you suggesting that the new one (331.38, released 14 January) has
regressed to not compile without the '-n-u-m' "fix"?
NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-331.38.run compiled here without need for fancy
switches and without a hitch.

Hi,

What kernel version ?
3.11.6-4-desktop
Need to downgrade my installation to that kernel, as I am using K:HEAD repo.

My personal opinion is that you should be using the '....Kernel:/stable/standard' repo and leave the HEAD one alone. The stable repo has the lastest kernel as 3.12.x (see my Sig line below). Going back to the original insallation kernel for 13.1 is going backwards too much.

But installing 331.38 with latest 3.13-rcX kernel version needs this patch
[1], to compile the kernel module and the uvm module.

I'm thinking of reinstalling 13.1 - to use btrfs, willl try then 331.38-
although I guess now the G03 driver is available.

Do you know if this patch will also work with the 331.38 driver and the 3.12.7.x kernel?
