Description Jiri Netolicky 2013-07-01 06:11:17 UTC
Building nvidia-drivers fails with 3.10 kernel. Problem is in
nv-i2c.c line 327.

 osstatus = i2c_del_adapter(pI2cAdapter);

In 3.10 kernel the i2c_del_adapter method is declared
as returning void:

extern void i2c_del_adapter(struct i2c_adapter *);

Reasons are described in this mail:

Looks like this is not one problem...

(Quoting Doug Goldstein from bug #447566 comment #56)
> It is and has always been Gentoo's policy to support what NVIDIA supports. The current versions of the drivers do not support 3.10. You are more than welcome to use the capabilities of epatch_user (which are present in all the ebuilds) to make the changes yourself but they do not go into the main tree.
