The other thing, when applying the patch it keeps coming up with something about
Reverse and then asks for response to Assume -R [n] - whatever that means. So I
tried both ways and during one of them the above was created.

In any case, the file did have today's date and time so I ran the
NVIDIA*.run anyway and got the usual failure to compile driver.

Once you have applied the patch, a second attempt will see that the change has been made, and then yield the "Assume -R" message. Use 'man patch' to see what that means.

Rerun the sequence

sh ./ -x
cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86-295.20
patch -p1 < nvidia_295_20_for_3.3_err

When that fails, post the log file /var/log/nvidia-installer.log.
