linux 2.6.30 rc2 on ubuntu jaunty for 64 bits and nvidia issues

linux 2.6.30 rc2 on ubuntu jaunty for 64 bits

there is an new repository blessed by the kernel team
you can download the deb files from there
http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v2.6.30-rc2/

../linux-headers-2.6.30-020630rc2_2.6.30-020630rc2_all.deb
../linux-headers-2.6.30-020630rc2-generic_2.6.30-020630rc2_amd64.deb
../linux-image-2.6.30-020630rc2-generic_2.6.30-020630rc2_amd64.deb
and download with wget or by browser

the from the terminal
$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb
reboot and let's see the kernel bugs , if you are "lucky" to have an nvidia video card
then you need to patch the nvidia driver so it can compile

$sudo su
# sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-180.44-pkg2.run --extract-only
# cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-180.44-pkg2/usr/src/nv/
# http://pavlinux.ru/nv/nvidia-x86_64-180.44-2.6.30-rc2.patch
# patch -p0 < nvidia-x86_64-180.44-2.6.30-rc2.patch
# cd ../../../
# ./nvidia-installer
