    No nvidia graphics on 3.5.0-rc3 kernel

    I just built the latest kernel from source and all went well, except when I boot into the new kernel I have no graphics acceleration. When I boot into the other kernel (3.2.something) I have nvidia drivers. I'm guessing it has something to do with DKMS not building modules for the newest kernel.

    is there any way to force DKMS to build the modules, or is there a way to compile the kernel with the proprietary drivers as a module?

    I'm going to take a crack at install the nvidia drivers from source directly from nVidia (the old method where you drop out to the tty) and see what happens

    It's an EVGA Geforce 8400 GS 1GB DDR3. it's device ID is 10c30x10de. And yes, just apt-get install nvidia-current fixed the problem. The issue was indeed with DKMS not working with the new kernel for certain proprietary drivers, but the xorg-edgers packages fix the issue.
