NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2960.rh73bigmem.i686.rpm
 
I can't get this to install:

rpm -ivh NVIDIA_k^Gernel-1.0-2960.rh73bigmem.i686.rpm

I get something similar if I try to make install from the source tarball (with the bigmem kernel booted).

When the normal (..up) kernel is booted, NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2960.rh73up.i686.rpm installs fine, as does the GLX rpm, and the framebuffer (geforce4 mx420) works fine with XF86 4.2.0-8

The PC is a dell 4500, with RH7.3 freshly installed.

Any suggestions (other than avoid the bigmem kernel)?

Thanks for any help

You are using the wrong kernel rpm. Don't use the highmem rpm since that one isn't meant for your rh 7.3 distro. It is meant for a special rh 7.3 distro with support for gigabytes of memory. (likely > 4 GB)

Just use: NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2960.rh73up.i386.rpm
or NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2960.rh73up.i686.rpm

It doesn't really matter which one you use.

Hmm, thanks. I just took that cos grub gave it to me as the default (I've only got 512Mb of RAM).

I'll forget about bigmem ...
