building with NVIDIA 270.26

Post by m_kane » Sun Mar 20, 2011 9:47 am

I'm trying to build with new nvidia beta drivers, as there should be few needed bug fixes.

I made new folder in script/nvidia same way as there is other versions, and downloaded nividia drivers there. Then I modified minimyth.conf.mk and check-file to allow this version to be build.

It built succesfully without errors. But when I try to run minimyth, it complains "can't load NVIDIA kernel module"

What went wrong?

I am not sure.

However, one thing you did not mention was whether or not you modified the definition of NVIDIA_EXTRA_VERSION in script/nvidia/nvidia/package-api.mk so that at accounts for version 270 as well as 256 and 260. If not, that could cause a problem.

Anyway, I have added the package nvidia/nvidia-270.30 and committed it to SVN. It builds and runs on my Acer ApireRevo 3610.
