Description Acidphase 2013-05-22 21:02:11 UTC
Since 3.10-rc1 the proprietary nvidia drivers fail to build against the kernels rc1 and rc2. Attached is the build log.

Running Gentoo x86_64 (amd64), Even though in this attempt I tried to merge the  
319.17 version I had also tried previous versions with the same result.

Found working patch from the nvidia developers forum.


How to apply patch in Gentoo: 

Just let epatch_user do the work. All you need to do is create a nvidia-drivers dir in /etc/portage/patches/x11-drivers/

So download patch cp ~/Downloads/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-319.17-no-compat32.patch /etc/portage/patches/x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers

Then just emerge nvidia-drivers or module-rebuild rebuild

This patch works with 3.10-rc3 and nvidia drivers 319.23

Good luck,
