    Re: Linux 3.11.1-saucy mainline kernel is available

    @zika -- I think you're onto something...

    I'm back in Ubu 13.10/GS 3.9.91 Staging now, and I ran Answer #3 in the link above:


    Code:
    vindsl@Zuul:~$ su
    Password: 
    root@Zuul:/home/vindsl# dkms status | sed s/,//g | awk '{print "-m",$1,"-v",$2}' | while read line; do ls /var/lib/initramfs-tools | xargs -n 1 dkms install $line -k; done
    Error! Could not locate dkms.conf file.
    File:  does not exist.
    Module nvidia-304/304.108 already installed on kernel 3.11.0-031100-generic/i686

    Module nvidia-304/304.108 already installed on kernel 3.11.1-031101-generic/i686
    root@Zuul:/home/vindsl#
    When I ran it in Ubu 10.10, it found all the modules, and reported they were already installed.

    In saucy, it cannot locate my dkms.conf file.

    I wonder where it wandered to...

    Okay... got it!

    Code:
    root@Zuul:/home/vindsl# dkms status | sed s/,//g | awk '{print "-m",$1,"-v",$2}' | while read line; do ls /var/lib/initramfs-tools | xargs -n 1 dkms install $line -k; done

    Had to clear the cruft out of my /var/lib/dkms folder.

    There were still some remnants from an old nVidia 304 install (Jan 2013) in there.

    We'll see how it goes on the next kernel install.

    Thanks!

    Hrm...

    Output still looked janky, so I purged Linux 3.11 final.

    Got a few error messages on completion, so I manually updated GRUB:

    Code:
    vindsl@Zuul:~$ sudo update-grub
    [sudo] password for vindsl:         
    Generating grub.cfg ...
    Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.11.1-031101-generic
    Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img-3.11.1-031101-generic
    Found memtest86+ image: /boot/memtest86+.bin
    Found Ubuntu 10.10 (10.10) on /dev/sda1
    done
    vindsl@Zuul:~$ su

    Looks clean as a whistle now.

    Let's see if it survives a cold boot...

    Beautiful!!!

    Well, that wiped the slate clean...

    I'm going to add that procedure to my trash cleanup routine, in Gnote, before I forget about it.

    Just out of Curiosity are you running Driver 304 from
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/xorg-edgers/ppa/ubuntu saucy main
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/xorg-edgers/ppa/ubuntu saucy main
    They just work better for me.

    So did you get the same build failure with 3.12-rc1?

    Haven't had a chance to try it yet.

    Just got home, and I'm updating my FB account, checking my mail(s), reading the forums, feeding my face, blah, blah, blah.

    I'll give 3.12 whirl in a few minutes...
