Success! :)
It needs patch from here https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/nvidia-mainline/, so:
1) go there, click download tarball and extract
2) ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-319.17.run --extract-only
3) cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86-319.17/kernel
4) patch -p1 < /location-of-the-nvidia-mainline-patch/pastie-7942599.diff
5) make SYSSRC="/lib/modules/3.10.10-ALPHAOS/build" module
6) install -D -m644 "nvidia.ko" "/lib/modules/3.10.10-ALPHAOS/nvidia.ko"
7) depmod

Many thanks! Finally COMPLETE compiled nvidia driver.
After applied pastie-7942599.diff, still need back to console and use "nvida-installer" which is in directory "NVIDIA-Linux-x86-319.17" to install the drivers.
Thank you!

I tried this thinking I would get OPTIMUS working with linux on my laptop.

The support for OPTIMUS seemed a little shaky though.

So I wanted to uninstall nvidia.ko again. How?
