Subject: [gentoo-user] Building the nvidia and ati proprietary drivers against the latest kernel.git
Date: Mon, 09 Apr 2012 00:32:51
Message-Id: jltajf$6ft$
1 For many years I've been testing kernels from Linus's git repository
2 and I find that about twice a year the kernel devs do something evil
3 that breaks proprietary video drivers. (I suspect they do it on purpose
4 but I can't prove it ;)
6 I have no idea how many of you like to test bleeding edge kernels but
7 I thought I'd ask. I have some seriously ugly hacks for building the
8 nvidia (and very recently) the ati proprietary drivers against git
9 kernels, but I won't spend time explaining them here if no one is
10 interested.
