@JoKer the latest official version on PPA is 0.17.3 (Last updated 2011-04-21).
Where did you see 0.18.2, github?

Hi, is there a reason why you didn't update to 0.18.2?

magicfish1990 commented on 2013-03-18 20:09

@Mr_Men updated, thanks.

Because of new kernel, __devinitconst is problematic. You should add

sed -i 's/__devinitconst//g' nvidia_bl.c

in PKGBUILD before make || return 1

Please use /usr/lib instead of /lib as it conflicts with latest glibc update.

@magicfish1990 And you don't need to put the module in "kernel/drivers". You can leave it in "extramodules". Thanks.

@magicfish1990 You can simply use the symlink /lib/modules/`uname -R`/extramodules. But your solution works. Thanks.

Please, modify the PKGBUILD in order to install the module into the "extramodules" directory to prevent rebuilding when upgrading the kernel.
