Default makeself.sh

I'd like to apply Zander's patches to NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1.run and rebuild a new package. I have unpacked the drivers using ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1.run --extract-only and applied the patches.

What argument should I run usr/bin/makeself.sh with to rebuild the package?

This should work:

# sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1/usr/bin/makeself.sh \
--target-os Linux --target-arch x86 \
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1 \
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1-custom.run \
"NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86 1.0-6629" \
./nvidia-installer

Thanks, I just noticed this was already explained in post 1.0-6629 for Linux x86/x86-64 updates - unfortunately the search engine didn't find anything.

No problem. It wasn't explained at the time (the updates thread was created later).

Ah, OK.

By the way, thread 1.0-6629 for Linux x86/x86-64 updates lists 7 patches:
  • NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-6629-1189413.diff
  • NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-6629-1201042.diff
  • NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-6629-1171869.diff
  • NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-6629-1175225.diff
  • NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-6629-1165235.diff
  • NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-6629-1161283.diff
  • NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-6629-1155389.diff

I had found an additional one on minion.de:
Was it forgotten? Left out on purpose?

This patch is more of a cleanup than a functional update. It's included in the cumulative patch.
