The change from /lib to /usr/lib cannot be completed on my system because nvidiabl still owns a dir inside /lib. Reinstalling nvidiabl fails because the dir /lib/modules/uname -r/<etc> cannot be found... Flagging out of date.

@uwinkelvos - sorry, my bad, drm was turned off, so no fb.h and no FB_BACKLIGHT_LEVELS declared...
anyway, thanks for update, working well on 315m

@walkindude - see: I ld guess you need to to enable that in your kernel config.

@others: i switched to nouveau for now, so i cant realy test the driver. Could anyone verify that it is working. And if anyone is interested mantainig the package, you are welcome! :)

Has anyone tried it with kernel 3.2.9?
Have 'Exec format error' or in dmesg: 'disagrees about version of symbol module_layout', even after recompiling
