    302.17 nvidia-current package failure

    Tried to install 302.17 nvidia-current from the Edgers PPA, but it's returning with a package failure dialog.

    Has to do with a python quirk error -- no 'writeFile' function in the parser, blah, blah, blah.

    Anybody else having this problem?

    Guess I'll downgrade to 302.11, if I can't figure out a workaround...

    Re: 302.17 nvidia-current package failure

    Hello Vin,

    i have installed it without issue here on 8500gt & i386 system, but with xorg 1.12 from edgers too.

    so maybe purge these packages then reinstall them.

    note: always had trouble using cairo from edgers, so i use the stock one.

    Interesting!

    Re: 302.17 nvidia-current package failure

    what i get is only:

    update-alternatives: warning: skip creation of /usr/lib32/libOpenCL.so because associated file /usr/lib32/nvidia-current/libOpenCL.so (of link group i386-linux-gnu_gl_conf) doesn't exist.

    Looked about libopencl into synaptic, but it seems we does not have the required files yet.
    Anyway, on this 8500gt its not a real trouble

    It seems to me you get these warnings/errors because of some ppas around.

    I'm getting the same no "writefile" error with 295.53 on a pristine daily with no ppa's .
    if it ain't broke you haven't tweaked it enough

    Re: 302.17 nvidia-current package failure

    Checking out the dialog...

    It looks like dpkg thinks my machine is a DELL Latitude E6530 laptop.

    Otherwise, why would it be trying a apply the latitude E6530 quirk?!?!?!?

    LoL! This is a good joke, maybe.

    Thanks for confirming.

    There is a possibility that we have a Python 3 bug at play here.

    Heh! This is a real corker!

    Re: 302.17 nvidia-current package failure

    I wonder if those "quirks" apply to anything other than video cards ? that might explain some of my problems since I haven't owned a "store bought" desktop in over 20 years .

    Re: 302.17 nvidia-current package failure

    For giggles, I tried installing nvidia-current from bash, running the Linux 3.4 kernel. Same result(s).

    So, I don't think it's caused by the 3.5-rc3 kernel I'm running.

    yes I'd lean a lot more tword a python than an xorg or nvidia one .
