    Did not even try to „beat“ anyone... Just was up a bit later than usual and opened mainline page by mistake.

    To find the location of your 'nv-acpi.c' file, try...

    Code:
    $ whereis nv-acpi.c


    Comment-out this section...

    Code:
    /*   if (pNvAcpiObject->notify_handler_installed)
    *    {
    *        NV_ACPI_OS_WAIT_EVENTS_COMPLETE();
    *
    *        // remove event notifier
    *        status = acpi_remove_notify_handler(device->handle, ACPI_DEVICE_NOTIFY, nv_acpi_event);
    *    }
    */

    Save.

    Install 3.13-rc5.

    Reboot.

    Simple pimple!

    My pleasure, bro!

    The 'fix' alluded me for weeks -- it was too simple, I guess. LoL!

    Since we're hacking the nVidia driver, it should stick on future kernel updates.

    The fix will need to reapplied when the nVidia driver is updated, not the kernel.

    That's my best guess...

    Welcome! Thanks, for the confirmation.

    This hack should keep us going, until someone patches the official nVidia release(s).
