12.1 tumbleweed x86_64

trying to update nvidia driver with new kernel fails

sh ./ -a -K

fails, log below

: ~ # rpm -qa *kernel* |grep 3.3


A patch file to allow 295.20 to build with kernel 3.3 can be obtained from

To use it, do

sh ./ -x
cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-295.20
patch -p1 < nvidia_295_20_for_3.3_err

There is a way to patch the files from the 'sh ./NV...', but I have not tested



A question Larry: with the appropriate wording changes, will your patch also
work on the 32-bit version of the nVidia driver? I have applied other patches
for the driver and the driver just will not compile in the stock-standard
installation of MS #2 from the KDE LIVE 'CD' on my 32-bit system.

The patch should work on both 32- and 64-bit systems. I must admit that I only used with x86_64, but it only patches the shell script that gets the configuration. If it does not apply, then let me know.


Thanks, shall do.


Wife sent me to the doctor to get the pills for me to have an erection.
When I came back I gave her the packet of slimming pills.
I am still looking for somewhere to live.
