8??? needed this patch http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=62021 (first one in there) in order to be able to compile ("vmap()" issue, I think.). The error message is seen here: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=66751
Working with Debian amd64
Debian's AMD64 distribution runs a pure 64 bit operating system. The Nvidia kernel installer doesn't know how to install it's files with this (I think the latest one does).
I think you could do something like this:
, but I haven't tested it yet.
You could also move files after it installs. Here's how I did it. First, install it as normal. The installer puts files into /usr/X11R6/lib64, not /usr/X11R6/lib as it should for Debian. This script will fix it:
1 cd /usr/X11R6/lib 2 pwd 3 ln -s -vi ../lib64/*.so* ../lib64/*.a . 4 5 cd /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions 6 pwd, 7 ln -s -vi ../../../lib64/modules/extensions/*.so* \ 8 . 9 cd /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers 10 pwd 11 ln -s -vi ../../../lib64/modules/drivers/*.so* \ 12 ../../../lib64/modules/drivers/*.o* \
