Linux 3.13 released!

by on Jan.20, 2014, under Software

Yay, another new linux kernel. Of course this broke the closed NVidia driver, I tried 331.38:

[  110.917769] nvidia: Unknown symbol acpi_os_wait_events_complete (err 0)

The fix for this is easy, unpack the installer and then patch file kernel/nv-acpi.c hack out line 306:

        // NV_ACPI_OS_WAIT_EVENTS_COMPLETE();

Run nvidia-installer and you should be good to go. Incredible that it always takes NVidia forever to fix these things, this bug has been known since at least 3.13-rc1. Oh well.

Next up, testing nftables. Looks like iptables will soon be obsolete 🙂
Here’s a nice howto to get you started – https://home.regit.org/netfilter-en/nftables-quick-howto/.
Update:
Might you be wondering (like me) where the heck the libnftables git repository went: they decided to rename the thing to libnftnl. You can find the repository here – https://git.netfilter.org/libnftnl/

Another thing: compiling nftables from git breaks on my Slackware64-current machine atm because 1. configure.ac still points to libnftables (instead of libnftl), I assume this will be fixed within the hour. 2: it tries to compile against libreadline without linking libncurses.
Fix for that is running configure like: LDFLAGS=-lncurses ./configure
