Error building nVidia module after kernel update in Chimaera

Something is not working with nVidia drivers and the latest kernel. Anyone else seen this?

Building module:
cleaning build area...
env NV_VERBOSE=1 make -j4 modules KERNEL_UNAME=5.10.0-29-amd64................(bad exit status: 2)
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 5.10.0-29-amd64 (x86_64)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/nvidia-current/470.223.02/build/make.log for more information.

Yes, I have seen a similar topic in the German Debian Forum. There seems to be a new version 239 of the 470 driver package dripping down from sid. As far as I understood the discussion the new package is in proposed updates.

"Dropping down"? Will we have to install backports repositories to get it? Why didn't they realize this update would cause a problem and arrange for both upgrades to be synchronized?

Normal process, new stuff goes into sid at first, then eventually in testing, later into proposed-updates or backports.

239 is not in backports but in proposed-updates!!!

It's been WEEKS and I still have to boot to the old kernel every time I used that system. This is how they support "old stable"? I am suddenly much less inclined to start using Linux as my primary OS.

If these same “they” owe you something, then contact them directly.
And here is Linux, where no one owes anyone anything.
And no one cares what OS you are having fun with.
