Kernel 3.3.0 update, nvidia kernel module issue.

There's some kind of problem with this morning's kernel 3.3.0 update. If you have akmod-nvidia installed, apparently the kernel module isn't created properly or it's failing to load or something. Booting into the previous kernel is fine.

Code:

I ran into the same thing. There is no module souce yet for akmod to work with - it's a new kernel series (3.2 --> 3.3). You can either wait for it, or remove nvidia drivers and use nouveau. That's what I did - I'll just watch for the new bits come along and reinstall then.

The 3.3 kernel works fine with the nouveau drivers, though the boot screen looks a bit strange...

Re: Kernel 3.3.0 update, nvidia kernel module issue.

Boot in previous kernel.

then console:
sudo akmods --kernels 3.3.0-4.fc16.x86_64


change kernel, that matches your system...
reboot with 3.3 kernel

if this fails: try this proposed as from Dax Kelson:


Boot into old 3.2 kernel and run these commands as root:

cd /lib/modules/3.3.0-4.fc16.x86_64/source/arch/x86/include/
cp generated/asm/*.h ./asm
akmods --kernels 3.3.0-4.fc16.x86_64

Reboot into 3.3 kernel.

Looks like rpmfusion have fixed the issue (comment 3)

https://bugzilla.rpmfusion.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2239

Hopefully it will get pushed quickly.

I had this problem using the akmods. I was able to fix it by manually downloading and installing akmod-nvidia-290.10-2.fc16.2.x86_64.rpm and kmod-nvidia-3.3.0-4.fc16.x86_64-290.10-2.fc16.2.x86_64.rpm from http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfr...tes/16/x86_64/ (hopefully corresponding packages should be there for i386 as well).

It did, figured it would by tomorrow at the latest. One yum clean all and yum update and 3.3.0 is fine. Thanks RPMfusion team.

Re: Kernel 3.3.0 update, nvidia kernel module issue.

It's not yet resolved for me. Am I missing something or do I just need to wait?

I can't boot F16 kernel 3.3.0-4 into runlevel 5. The nvidia driver fails to
load. So I booted it into runlevel 3. I issued "yum clean all" and then "yum
update". I got akmod-nvidia-290.10-2 and several kmod-nvidia-3.2.x but no
kmod-nvidia-3.3.0-4.

After this I try booting F16 3.3.0-4 into runlevel 5 and it still fails -
nvidia driver fails to load. I reboot into runevel 3 and again issue "yum clean
all" and "yum update". Result is "no packages marked for update".

Do I just need to wait for kmod-nvidia-3.3.0-4 to make it to the repos or am I
missing something?

Re: Kernel 3.3.0 update, nvidia kernel module issue.

There are also those of us that need the actual sources because we don't use the packaged modules for nvidia drivers (Optimus bumblebee user)

Try this for the full source.

Code:
yumdownloader --source kernel
FYI the kernel srpm contains the full kernel source code but is useless for compiling modules against.

That's what I installed - kmod-nvidia-3.3.0-4 from rpmfusion. Perhaps you are using a different mirror or something?

Re: Kernel 3.3.0 update, nvidia kernel module issue.

On the 5th try at re-installing kernel-devel, my module compilation errors disappeared. Not sure what the details are on the why, but I don't care. Surmise there was a bad mirror maybe?

Kernel 3.7.7 update, nvidia kernel module issue.

Hi.
Sorry to bump this thread but seems like the same problem.
Today I upgraded the kernel from 3.7.6 to 3.7.7.
When Fedora didn't started of course I didn't like it but lets say that I was not 100% surprised...

I attached the last boot messages from /var/log/messages.
But I saw this in it:
Code:
Feb 16 11:06:19 5-13-10-158 akmods[574]: Ignoring nvidia-kmod as it failed earlier[WARNING]
Feb 16 11:06:19 5-13-10-158 akmods[574]: Hint: Some kmods were ignored or failed to build or install.
Feb 16 11:06:19 5-13-10-158 akmods[574]: You can try to rebuild and install them by by calling
Feb 16 11:06:19 5-13-10-158 akmods[574]: '/usr/sbin/akmods --force' as root.
I had a similar problem a few weeks ago on F17 but since I was using also F18 without problems I haven't used F17 anymore.


Now I'm in Windows and I can acces (read-only) the Linux partition with a Total Commander plugin.
I could try to change to runlevel 3 or I could revert to 3.7.6 kernel (I have a backup) and try a different way to upgrade. Or I can wait until the problem is fixed in rpmfusion.
What should I do...?
Thank you for any suggestion.

Regards, Cosmin
