[opensuse-kernel] Need help with compiling Kernel Firmware and ACPI for nouveau

Hi,

I have to compile Kernel Firmware from
http://cgit.freedesktop.org/nouveau/linux-2.6/ for my OBS project
(home:jobermayr) which includes latest nouveau drivers for openSUSE users.

I do not know how I can do this. With "my" script (from Ruediger Oertel) I do
not receive the proper files...
Nouveau's firmware files will/have to change from binary to ihex format, too.
(see http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/nouveau/2009-December/004261.html)


The second problem is that drm-all packages for openSUSE 11.2 tell me the
following at installation:
# WARNING: /lib/modules/2.6.31.5-0.1-pae/updates/drm/i915/i915.ko needs unknown
symbol acpi_lid_notifier_register
# WARNING: /lib/modules/2.6.31.5-0.1-pae/updates/drm/i915/i915.ko needs unknown
symbol acpi_lid_notifier_unregister
# WARNING: /lib/modules/2.6.31.5-0.1-pae/updates/drm/i915/i915.ko needs unknown
symbol acpi_lid_open
# WARNING: /lib/modules/2.6.31.5-0.1-pae/updates/drm/i915/i915.ko needs unknown
symbol acpi_lid_notifier_register
# WARNING: /lib/modules/2.6.31.5-0.1-pae/updates/drm/i915/i915.ko needs unknown
symbol acpi_lid_notifier_unregister
# WARNING: /lib/modules/2.6.31.5-0.1-pae/updates/drm/i915/i915.ko needs unknown
symbol acpi_lid_open

There I do not know how I can back-compile ACPI things (2.6.32->2.6.31) for
proper i915.ko work.


You can find "official" statements regarding my OBS project here:

programming skills...)

Please note that nouveau's DRM/KMS code goes into Kernel 2.6.33 (see

Thanks for your hints/help/answers/work in advance.
