Since 304.88 is considered legacy, they will only receive security fixes and for new kernel support, i don't really hoped too much for this, but still it's possible if they wanted.
I have little hope too. That means the slackbuilds.org script should be updated to add the patch when the site is updated for 14.1?

That depends on the maintainer if he has the hardware to install slackware 14.1

A new release of 304.108, but no new kernel support added

Quote:
Implemented workarounds for two Adobe Flash bugs by applying libvdpau commit ca9e637c61e80145f0625a590c91429db67d0a40 to the version of libvdpau shipped with the NVIDIA driver.
Fixed a bug in nvidia-settings that could cause the wrong resolution to be set in basic mode for setups based on one display per X screen.
Added /usr/lib/modprobe.d to the list of directories where nvidia-installer may optionally install a generated modprobe configuration file to attempt to disable Nouveau.

Nvidia produces their Linux drivers in the first place for their workstation users, which mostly run RHEL on their machines. Seeing that RHEL 7 will be based on Fedora 19, which shipped with a 3.9.5 kernel, it is not very likely that there will be an update for newer kernels in the near future for the legacy drivers, unless Red Hat decides to ship a newer kernel.

It does have kernel 3.10 support actually. See: https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/t...iver-releases/.
I'm using it now with kernel 3.10.6.

How You made it?

The patch not work.

I have Nvidia source 304.88 32-bit driver.
After patching it i got:
ERROR: Unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module.

I have current kernel 3.10.9-smp 32-bit

I tried patching several times.
From http://bitc.bme.emory.edu/~lzhou/blogs/?p=379 i downloaded patched files to.

Always error.
I hate Nvidia.

The patch does work, I'm running the blob at the moment on a 3.10 kernel

Code:
$ uname -r
3.10.9-smp
Code:
# lspci -k | grep -A2 VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G73 [GeForce 7300 GT] (rev a2)
	Subsystem: eVga.com. Corp. Device a501
	Kernel driver in use: nvidia
Anyway, did you try the new release?
http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree8...86-304.108.run

//edit: Now running 304.108 - kernel module builds ok on 3.10

Yes 304.108 works fine.

Thanks!

It's funny so Nvidia.com still recommends 304.88 for GeForce 7 Series on Linux 32-bit.

I have NVidia 304.108 working with Linux Kernel 3.11 (only need one single patch). It's available on my SlackHacks if anyone is interested on building Linux Kernel 3.11

The above patch also works for nvidia-325.15 on 3.11.

I was planning to stay with 3.10.y this time, but O_TMPFILE looks really useful.

Does the 304.108 release still need a patch for the 3.10.x kernel (which will be the kernel version released with 14.1)?

I would love to make this work in OpenMandriva 2013 Beta but I keep getting one of 2 results, This if I click on the patch and select to "Save As':

Code:
# chmod a+x NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-304.108.run

# exit
exit

$ ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-304.108.run --extract-only
Creating directory NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-304.108

NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-304.108]$ patch -p1 < /home/dwight/Downloads/nvidia-3.11.patch
patch: **** Only garbage was found in the patch input.
And this if I copy and paste the patch to a file:

Code:
NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-304.108]$ patch -p1 < /home/dwight/Downloads/nvidia-3.11.patch
patching file kernel/nv-linux.h
patch unexpectedly ends in middle of line
Hunk #1 FAILED at 957.
1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to file kernel/nv-linux.h.rej
What am I doing wrong? Am I downloading the patch incorrectly?

Edit: Or is this patch only for x86 and I'm using x86_64?
