@ Dave: doing what you suggested didn't work. Perhaps I misread your
comment about the "---" and the "---"? I don't suppose you would be so
kind as to alter that patch to what it should read in full? Anyway, will
try doing it all again tomorrow before I totally "lose it" tonight:-).

I'll try attaching it first, then you can just apply it.
If you use Markus's method then you use "patch -p 1 Testing.txt" or
"patch -p 0 Testing_Basil_nVidia.patch" in the same directory.
The -p option strips x directory levels from the original patch.
From the working directory use "find . -name uvm8_va_block.c" to find
what should actually be in the "---" and "+++" headers in the patch.
Using the "linux-8qdh:/data/Nvidia-384.98 # sh ./NVIDIA*.run
--apply-patch Testing.txt" method you are dependent on the -p level that
nvidia use in their build script. Haven't used nvidia run files for a
while but AFAIR you can use --help and it tells you an advanced help
option and maybe there's a way of specifying the -p option that you can
play around with.

The patch is malformed (hint: every line in the diff part has to start with
either '+', '-' or ' '). Thanks go to the person who posted in the forum
without providing an actual patch file ...
