I had just got Ubuntu (first timer to Ubuntu so be very descriptive). I think there a problem with my Nvida update it won't let me update it. This is the name of the update in update manager NVIDIA binary xorg driver, kernel module and VDPAU library.
You cannot run kmod-nvidia with a non-CentOS kernel. You will need to download the proprietary binary drivers from nVidia and install those and then reinstall them every time you update your kernel. [by TrevorH]
To those that missed it in our Phoronix Forums where it was discovered, NVIDIA two days ago uploaded a new binary Linux (x86/x86_64) driver to their FTP server. This NVIDIA graphics driver is marked as the 260.19.26 beta, but they have yet to officially announce this new release or even provide a change-log.
After playing around on my F17 test installation with new kernels and nVidia drivers, I have discovered that installing a binary nVidia driver from nVidia works with a new-ish kernel (one without akmod or kmod support), and everything runs fine. The nVidia installation goes smoothly, and there are no issues.
Here's my requirement; I need to dump a structure of integers into a file in binary blob format(xxxxx.bin) and this file will be used by a kernel module. The kernel module will read its contents using request_firmware(..)and assign the contents of xxxxx.bin to the structure variable.
KWin, KDE's compositing window manager, will better play with the AMD Catalyst binary blob in the KDE 4.10 release by enabling direct rendering and the OpenGL 2.x back-end for those using the latest Catalyst driver...
