There has been an ABI change in the kernel at version 3.11 affecting all
binaries that use it, including the nvidia drivers.
This is a very simple change with a simple fix.
Here is the bugzilla entry.
The fix is out, you can find it here:
This has not been released in the the rpmfusion repos because the
buildsystem is currently broken.
[ra@hamburger ~]$ uname -a
Linux hamburger.home.ra.is 3.11.1-200.fc19.x86_64 #1 SMP Sat Sep 14
15:04:51 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[ra@hamburger ~]$ lsmod | grep -i nvidia
nvidia 9430089 57
drm 274480 2 nvidia
i2c_core 34242 3 drm,nvidia,videodev
The fix is working great for me.
Thanks for pointing me in the correct direction. I've been lazy and should
learn more about the akmod build process before relying on it entirely.
BTW, while I appreciate Harald's views, I am more than happy to break
things and look for a fix. I worry about stability on the system I build
for my kids, but not mine.
