    sudo cp generated/asm/unistd*.h ./asm
    and after this the nvidia module compiled fine.
    That worked great - Thanks for the post

    Mainline release candidates are usually a week in between at the earliest.

    I think we're talking about the daily build here:

    Code:
    http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/daily/current/
    (latest one seems to be 20th Jan).

    „Daily“ and „current“ are (usually) daily and current...
    For us, „kernel junkies“...

    Re: Just noticed Kernel 3.3-rc1 is here

    The mainline kernel's aren't part of the PP development cycle when it comes to 'daily' & 'current'. PP is using 3.2 kernel and backporting some things from 3.3, and 3.2 now that it's final will see less updates except for bug fixes and security, so the Ubuntu kernel team at this point has less to update. I was using the PP source to compile my oneirc kernel all through the RC phase for 3.2 but now I started paying more attention at the change logs. And the last few 3.2's have been extremely minor.

    If it makes you feel better they are expecting another release candidate for 3.3 in a day or two.

    For reference as it came up earlier in the thread and in others, here's the actual description of what mainline is what it's purpose is:

    Hi Everyone,

    The Ubuntu Kernel Team is pleased to announce the availability of
    mainline kernel builds for testing [1]. This will allow users to run
    the unmodified upstream vanilla kernel. This can be useful for
    verifying fixes upstream, testing for regressions introduced by Ubuntu
    specific changes, or confirming bugs exist upstream and subsequently
    help to report bugs upstream.

    The mainline kernels are packaged for each stable release (and stable
    release update) as well as the current -rc releases. They are available
    as .deb files for easy installation. Keep in mind that even though they
    are built using the Ubuntu kernel config files, they do not contain any
    Ubuntu specific drivers. Also, there are no restricted modules for
    these kernels. They are strictly the vanilla mainline kernel source.
    That being said, the Ubuntu kernel team does not support these kernels
    so use at your own risk.

    Thanks,
    The Kernel Team

    As a „kernel junkie“ that uses daily for years I've surely read all that. I'm (just) lazy to compile it every day... Thank You...

    Re: Just noticed Kernel 3.3-rc1 is here

    Got it working in the end

    Was getting a checksum error to start with when I tried to run the nvidia installer until I resorted to grabbing the .run file with wget.

    The next problem was where to find generated/asm/unistd*.h. After a bit of head-scratching I got it:

    Code:
    cd /usr/src/linux-headers-3.3.0-030300rc1-generic/arch/x86/include
    cp generated/asm/unistd*.h ./asm
    Then the 295.09 driver installed ok.

    Re: Just noticed Kernel 3.3-rc1 is here

    hey all,

    I have been playing around on a test machine with mythbuntu I am trying to figure out how you got the 295.90-0 driver activated from the ppa. I installed the ppa 290.10 from the x-swat ppa is installed. I cannot get the 295.09 driver to even make itself known to the system and no matter what as soon as I installed ANY restricted driver I get a black screen on reboot with 11.10. I rolled back to lucid and installed the daily kernel on it with no issues, updated to 290.10 reboots fine just did alsa 1.0.25 no issues but I still cannot get the system to find the 295.09-0 from the ppa.

    thanks,

    Dave

    If (like me) you're using the xorg-edgers ppa which only has the 290.10 nvidia driver you can add this ppa to get 295.09:

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:portis25/test
    Your boot problems may be caused by unity-greeter segfaulting. See my posts here:
