3.10 kernel and Nvidia

Patch for Nvidia and Kernel 3.11

If you compile the Kernel yourself
https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/
and want to use Nvidia proprietary drivers with the upcoming Kernel 3.11,
you need an additional patch.

See:
mm: use totalram_pages instead of num_physpages at runtime
https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=0ed5fd138539940a493dc69359cb2f49de70ad89

mm: kill global variable num_physpages
https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=1895418189e08c1d1eec4fbdb5fb41d793f57ba5

"Now all references to num_physpages have been removed, so kill it."
... but Nvidia.


Open /var/lib/dkms/nvidia/325.08/source/patches/linux-3.10.patch
and add this to the start of the patch:


--- a/nv-linux.h   2013-07-04 17:30:49.773211000 +0200
+++ b/nv-linux.h   2013-07-04 19:24:29.524124509 +0200
@@ -959,7 +959,7 @@
 #endif
 
 #if !defined(NV_VMWARE)
-#define NV_NUM_PHYSPAGES                num_physpages
+#define NV_NUM_PHYSPAGES                totalram_pages
 #define NV_GET_CURRENT_PROCESS()        current->tgid
 #define NV_IN_ATOMIC()                  in_atomic()
 #define NV_LOCAL_BH_DISABLE()           local_bh_disable()


This works for me.
If you want to install or upgrade Kernel 3.10, you must switch the patches manually. Of course.

I use Nvidia 325.08 from Siduction experimental.
Thanks for that.

Ok, you can't code, but you still might be able to write a bug report for Debian's sake

Ja, aber das ist im Moment nicht von Belang, da Kernel 3.11 noch in relativ weiter Ferne liegt.

I can't get nvidia working with the 3.10 kernel. I think I have something wrong with my repository lists. apt-cache policy nvidia-kernel-dkms only shows 304.88-4 0

This is after apt-get update with the below sources:
Code: [Select]

$ apt-cache policy nvidia-glx
nvidia-glx:
  Installed: 304.88-4
  Candidate: 304.88-4
  Version table:

        500 http://http.debian.net/debian/ unstable/non-free amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

I'm unclear on what steps to take to get nvidia working with the latest du. I would try some of the nvidia drivers mentioned in this thread but I can't find them.  I'm also unclear on what package(s) would I actually install.  Am I looking to install nvidia-glx, nvidia-kernel-dkms, both or something else?

Hi vayu.

Unless you have an older Nvidia card, you should try driver ver. 325-08 -- it comes from the siduction repo:

Code: [Select]
root@imerabox:/# apt-cache policy nvidia-glx
nvidia-glx:
  Installed: 325.08-0.siduction.1
  Candidate: 325.08-0.siduction.1
  Version table:
 *** 325.08-0.siduction.1 0
        500 http://packages.siduction.org/experimental/ unstable/non-free amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     304.88-4 0
        500 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ unstable/non-free amd64 Packages
        500 http://http.debian.net/debian/ unstable/non-free amd64 Packages



So, add a "siduction.list" file under /etc/apt/sources.d/ and it looks like this:

Code: [Select]
deb http://packages.siduction.org/base unstable main
#deb-src http://packages.siduction.org/base unstable main
deb http://packages.siduction.org/extra unstable main
#deb-src http://packages.siduction.org/extra unstable main
deb http://packages.siduction.org/fixes unstable main
#deb-src http://packages.siduction.org/fixes unstable main
deb http://packages.siduction.org/experimental unstable main contrib non-free


Then run an update and d-u and it should pull in the newer driver.  If it's all working, then you can comment out the "siduction" lines in your old source list file.

Thank you, those mirrors allowed the nvidia 325 package to show up and I was able to install without problem.  I still can't get into X with the new kernel though.  The old kernel works with the new driver (it also did with the old driver).

I don't need this kernel for any reason other than it was part of the dist-upgrade I just did.  How do I set the default to boot back to the last one?

Regarding the video driver on kernel 3.10, there should be error messages at /var/log/Xorg.0.log.

Regarding pinning the kernel at a given version, follow the guidance in the manual to use dpkg --set-selections to set the kernel image on hold. You will need to manually remove the newer kernel image first -- I don't think you can set an older version to boot by default.

I can understand this. And as a temporary workaround I suggest to follow dibl's advice.
OTOH there is no reason the nvidia driver / one of the nvidia drivers shouldn't run even on *your* system.

I think it is possible even with grub2.

Have a look at /etc/default/grub (using an editor like nano, mcedit as root)
The line "GRUB_DEFAULT=0" is the one you want to edit.
Quote
GRUB_DEFAULT=0
 The number at the end of this line can be changed to make the highlight bar or selection bar in the GRUB Menu appear automatically on any GRUB Menu entry we like.
 0 (zero) tells GRUB we want the first or top GRUB entry automatically selected unless we over ride that selection with our up or down arrow key during boot-up.
 Any number greater than 0 (zero) will mean boot entries further down the GRUB Menu will be selected instead.

I am not quite sure how to select an older kernel which is somewhat hidden in a submenue (#1 would be the submenue with the newest kernel selected (?), I assume. Would #2 be the second entry in the submenue or the third entry in the main menue?). Maybe someone can give an additonal hint.

After editing this line you have to run
Code: [Select]
update-grub

Anyways, in the long run I'd recomment to solve the problem with nvidia and the newest kernel. Maybe the easiest way would be to provide better info about your system/grafics/exact errormessages and asking towo in IRC directly.

Yes, I had forgotten about that method -- that should work to set an older kernel as default.

HOWEVER ...

The next time towo releases a new kernel, your d-u will want to install it.  And if you don't want it, then you can't proceed with the d-u, and you can't update your packages.  This means your rolling distro will stop rolling, or else you'll be accumulating new kernels that you can't use.   :lol:

So, the advice is to first try to troubleshoot the error with the nvidia driver, and get it working on the new kernel, including using IRC to get help if needed.  If that fails, then you probably want to pin the kernel to a 3.9-er and keep that one going forward.

If you don't want the kernel to be updated automatically with each d-u just purge the siduction kernel metapackage.
