Problem with SuSE 8.2 and 1.0-4496
Although all dependencies are satisfied (so it seems), the installer fails. The sh command starts well, but fails to build a module for my kernel 2.4.20-4GB (kernel sources 2.4.20 are also installed). The message is in the attached nvidia-installer.log (info.zip also containing my /etc/X11/XF86Config and /var/log/XFree86.0.log, but I don't think they're much help).
Could SuSE have used another compiler for the kernel than on the cd's? Probably not, but where's the problem then?
Other info: Dell Dimension with PII 400, Geforce2 MX400 with tv-out, LCD 1702FP (also Dell). The "old" drivers with SuSE 8.0 (kernel 2.4.18-4GB) worked fine.
Whoever solves this; welcome to Oktoberfest with some beers and Schweinshax'n on my expense!
# export IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH=yes
Works! (So it seems...)
Thanks, TheOuch! I did read this trick in the README, but wasn't sure whether that would fix it, or maybe cause more problems. My X-server was working (without 3D-acceleration), so I didn't want to mess up that.
After reading your reply, I went through the README again, and found this:
# cat /proc/version
# gcc -v
Since the output of those two showed the same compiler, I trusted you were right, and you were.......till now. But in difference to another major OS, my experience with Linux is; what works, stays working !!
What else can I say (to myself and other impatient fellows)? READ THE F****** MANUAL ! :afro:
By the way; with sax2 you don't have to edit the XF86Config file (sax2 takes care of that).
All in all simply a rather harmless bug in the installer(?).
