A future release should add support for Linux 3.7.

I installed 3.8-rc1 kernel, and 313.09 module can not compile. Here is the make.log: http://pastebin.com/F30rJLmC Can someone please create a patch for this to work. :)

Have you tried to think for just one second? - beta drivers are compatible with Linux 3.7, the latest stable drivers are not.

This patch is for the 304 driver series, not for 310 or above!

He is using beta drivers, so am I. And I have a problem on 3.8-rc1, that he is running without problems. That patch doesn't help, I already tried, all the changes are already in beta 313.09. Here is my kernel config file: http://pastebin.com/bmbdm6zr If that can help you guys, to help me solve this problem. :)

Strange, but the patch from birdie post worked. Nvidia 313.09 doesn't need to be patch for 3.7.x kernel on my machine, but needs to be patched with that patch for 3.8-rc1. That is very strange, because 313.09 does have that patch integrated, but on some other way (in multiple lines, not in one like in the patch).

Vanilla 3.7.0 without any patches. I feel like I applied that NVIDIA patch without realizing it wasn't necessary any longer ;-)
