    I couldn't get 3.7-rc1 & 3.7-rc2 to work, so I can't do an A-B-C comparison, but I've been pushing 3.7-rc3 hard, for over 10 hours, without a single hiccup.

    Oddly, Flash et al. seems to be much smoother and more stable than 3.6.x. Usually, my browser runs out of mem, several times a day, especially when I have lots of tabs open. But, I haven't had one occurence yet, with 3.7-rc3.

    Since my last post (above), and with your encouragement, I went ahead and gave Linux 3.7-rc3 a whirl.

    Nothing, nada! No nVidia legacy support. And, a slew of errors & warnings, just like my previous attempts.

    Next, following up on Milos_SD's post, I started patching my edgers 304.51 drivers. I started with "conftest.sh".

    Only one error, this time, but it was fatal. Still no nVidia legacy support.

    Finally, I tried the "nv-mmap.c" patch. Bingo!!!

    Third install worked a treat...

    In the meantime, I guess ppl running ancient iron will have to roll your own...
    I'm in the same boat. My graphics card isn't supported by the latest nvidia-current. The kernel module built ok with 3.7-rcN I think, but wasn't loadable.

    I've switched to nvidia-current-updates which doesn't build at the moment with 3.7-rcN (without patching).

    Will either hold out for a new version of nvidia-current-updates or look into patching it.

    A few thoughts...

    Evidently, my GeForce 7600GT has been deemed a legacy device, and won't be supported beyond nVidia 304.x.

    Put another way, nVidia >= 310.x will never work in this rig, unless I upgrade my hardware.

    The greater issue is, the VM_RESERVED flags have disappeared in kernel 3.7.x and need to be replaced (kernel patch) or ignored (nVidia patch).

    I took the easy route and simply patched two (2) files in my nVidia 304.51 folder. My assumption is, as long as I don't do a fresh install of nvidia-current, e.g. not patched, I will be able to upgrade the kernel, at will.

    The VM_RESERVED flags are not coming back, AFAIK. They are remapping a lot of things in kernel 3.7.x to make it compatible with upstream developments -- kmod being one of them.

    Anyway, that's the *feeling* I get, from reading around in the gits.

    I can live with nVidia legacy drivers, but my kernel fetish is a different matter. LoL!

    Patching the nVidia install seems to be the easiest way of accomplishing this...

    Here are the patches I applied:

    The first patch is a drop-in.
    • Make a text file. Example: uapi-patch.txt
    • Drop it into your nVidia folder. Example: ~/usr/src/nvidia-current-304.51
    • Run the patch from inside your nVidia folder with superuser privs. Example:

    The second patch is a bad copy n' paste, or whatever -- couldn't get it to work -- so I manually patched it...
    • Edit nv-mmap.c with root auth
    • Find:
      Code:

      Code:
      vma->vm_flags |= (VM_IO | VM_LOCKED | (VM_DONTEXPAND | VM_DONTDUMP));
    • Save



    Having said that, I *might* try to install nVidia 304.60...

    In the kernell-ppa/mainline, there is now two new 3.6 kernels:
    3.6.4. and 3.6.5 for raring.

    But neither of those have the linux-headers-*-all.deb package.

    Ubuntu 13.04 will likely be shipping with the linux 3.8 kernel.

    Re: Kernel 3.7-rc1

    what are they doing ?

    HTML Code:
    drm/nouveau: headless mode by default if pci class != vga display
    so if your display is not a vga one, be ready for a "no device found" or a blackscreen

    very strange setting or is it switching to nouveau driver in that case ?

    3.7-rc4 running great for the past 11 hours. There are no memory leaks that I had with -rc3, and no a lot of iowait that I had with -rc2.

    These where the culprits that messed with my audio pleasure that I' wrote about. The same conclusion...
    It was fixed couple of days ago in daily... (999)...
