Package: nvidia-kernel-source
Version: 169.12-2
Severity: serious
Justification: no longer builds from source

Hi maintainer,

nvidia-kernel-source 169.12-2 does not build and shows this error:

#patch for XEN
patch -p3 < /usr/src/modules/nvidia-kernel/debian/patches/xen.patch
/bin/sh: /usr/src/modules/nvidia-kernel/debian/patches/xen.patch:
Permission denied
make[2]: *** [configure-stamp] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/modules/nvidia-kernel'
make[1]: *** [kdist_image] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/modules/nvidia-kernel'

The output of "ls" is quite strange:

$ ll /usr/src/modules/nvidia-kernel/debian/patches/
ls: cannot access
/usr/src/modules/nvidia-kernel/debian/patches/xen.patch: Permission
total 0
-????????? ? ? ? ?                ? xen.patch

I am not running any xen related software.

Thank you.

Cyril Jaquier
