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

# WARNING: /lib/modules/2.6.31.5-0.1-pae/updates/drm/i915/i915.ko needs

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

Good luck with that, it's not trivial at this time :(

The above are easy, from my experience with i915 KMS backport to
2.6.27. Simply define dummy static inline functions for them.
They are rather cosmetic part, so no big missing.

Ah, ok, nevermind, it might be easier than I imagined.
