Help! Can anyone tell me if I've got the right Nvidia 3123 kernel for RH7.3/Athlon?
 
This is an Athlon box... I figured that means I need the 3123 Athlon kernel... but for whatever reason my 'clean' and freshly update 7.3 install is using the 2.4.18_10 'i686' kernel... Can someone help me? :) I'm an experienced NT/2k/XP senior systems engineer who's long been aware of the superiority of Linux, and I've finally decided to take the plunge... in fact, I'm on the verge of destroying my Microshaft install disks (I'm serious...), as an incentive to learning this new stuff... but it ain't easy...

Use the drivers that match the kernel that you're running.

Athlons can run anything that's been compiled for an i686 (which is all that the "-i686" tag means), with no problems at all.

Please download and run NVchooser.sh from the driver download page. It will tell you which files you should grab.

Usage: 'sh NVchooser.sh'

Thanks!

Problems with RH7.3 smp athlon kernel
 
I'm having trouble getting the nvidia drivers working with Redhat 7.3 on an smp kernel. It's giving me:

# insmod /lib/modules/2.4.18-10smp/kernel/drivers/video/NVd
/lib/modules/2.4.18-10smp/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver: unresolved symbol irq_stat_Rsmp_9c0f14ee
/lib/modules/2.4.18-10smp/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver:
Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license
and it has unresolved symbols. The module may be trying to access
GPLONLY symbols but the problem is more likely to be a coding or
user error. Contact the module supplier for assistance, only they
can help you.

Here's the output of NVchooser:
# sh ./NVchooser.sh
Please download and install the following files:
NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.rh73smp_2.4.18_10.i686.rpm
NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-3123.i386.rpm

Here's the output of rpm -ivh to show that I have installed the right version:
# rpm -ivh NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.rh73smp_2.4.18_10.i686.rpm
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
package NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.rh73smp_2.4.18_10 is already installed


Any hints on how to get this t o work?
