100.14.19 install on Ubuntu 7.10 failure
 
2 Attachment(s)
I have a NVidia 6800 Ultra that was working perfectly with a previous install of Ubuntu (7.04) and NVidia installer (1.0-9755). When I upgraded to the latest Ubuntu (7.10), the video driver stopped working.

I tried installing the latest NVidia driver (100.14.19) and I needed to build the kernel module, but the kernel module could not be loaded because of a version issue with struct_module.

Does anyone know why this is happening?

thanks,
Mike

I'm guessing this is a Ubuntu problem. It looks like the headers do not match up with the installed kernel.

Yes, it looks like the kernel development files you built the driver against do not match the running kernel:
[ 5356.932390] nvidia: no version for "struct_module" found: kernel tainted.
[ 5356.932405] nvidia: version magic '2.6.22.9 mod_unload PENTIUM4 ' should be '2.6.22-14-386 mod_unload 486 '
[11084.734074] nvidia: disagrees about version of symbol struct_module

Ubuntu 7.10 has 100.14.19 already in the repository: http://packages.ubuntu.com/gutsy/misc/nvidia-glx-new
