Re: [Bug 1268257] Re: nvidia-331-updates 331.38-0ubuntu3: nvidia-331-updates kernel module failed to build, with only error: "objdump: '... .tmp_nv.o': No such file"


I am not sure this should be debated here, but I totally agree with Ken, 
I see fix released but have been unable find it anywhere.
Personally my system seems to be OK but until I am satisfied 340 is the 
end of the story I still follow this bug.

Having been an advocate for Linux for more than 15 years it is a shame 
to see the standard  apparently declining.

  This seems to fix it (at least for one version upgrade) for many

  $ sudo dpkg-reconfigure nvidia-331

  after that...

  $ sudo dpkg-reconfigure nvidia-331-uvm
