Hi Randall,

found a patch here:

Followed the instructions and was able to build at least a module that
loaded. However kdm did not start and gave me a black and stale display.

My workaround is dirty but works. I installed a self compiled
without the applied patch and replaced the nvidia.ko with the patched
one. Now kdm started successfully.

I prefer to have a patched *deb package. Poorly I have no idea how to
create it, how to add the patch to the nvidia-kernel-legacy-96xx-source

Just for your information. Please let me know any solution.

Thanks in advance.
