My source RPM won't build right! Details Inside.
I downloaded the .src.rpm file for build 3123 of the nvidia drivers for my Ti4200. The rpm --build command worked fine, however when I tried to run the rpm -ivh /usr/src/rpm/RPMS/i386/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.i386.rpm file, I get the following message:
I know the sh command works because I used it to upgrade my xwindows just earlier, and have used the NVchooser.sh program as well!
This all occured after the make install command from the .tar.gz failed as well. I feel like I'm almost there but something is just a little bit off!! any help would be greatly appreciated!
(When I try to do it with the .tar.gz files, I get unresolved symbol errors and it does not complete.)
I have no tried with a 2.2 kernel...
I supose you have an old Redhat, 6.2
Try rpm -ihv /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/NV* --nodeps
and if this fails
rpm -ihv /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/NV* --nodeps --force
This omit all depenciencies and checks.
When I compiled Nvidia's Tar.gz, I needed having my kernel configured( I ever compile and install my custom kernel )
but now, I am using Redhat Limbo, beta 3 ( null) and is up2date in all packages
Also, I have made a simply guide to install in Limbo beta3.
Only post the packages I needed with a default desktop install
But I think your problems are from an old "rpm" package
Redhat updated rpm to 4.0.1(rpm-build-4.1-0.81.i386.rpm)
also, rpm's database is different too
Possibly the kernel
I may need to reconfigure the kernel and recompile, I can see that now. I am using Slackware 8.0, so it's not really that out of date, and the RPM i am using is current as well. I will try to configure kernel at home after work today as one option. Does anybody else have any ideas?
If you verify that you meet all the requirements you can force the install:
rpm -ivh --force --nodeps packagename
also it seems to not find /bin/sh. this should be a symlink to your running shell. Do ls -l /bin/sh to see if it's there. If not, find your shell:
env | grep SHELL
This should return SHELL=/bin/bash or something like that then:
ln -s /bin/bash /bin/sh
Would be strange if /bin/sh is not already there though.
Well I ended up recompiling the kernel, and went to 2.4.5 however the make modules_install didn't work and gave me a whole bunch of depmod errors regarding unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/pcmcia/filename.o.gz, about 4 or 5 of them! I have not tried using the --force --nodep for the rpm package, however when I try to run the .tar.gz files and do a make install, it gives me the same unresolved symbol errors and will not complete the make install! Any ideas on how to resolve those? I appreciate everybody's help with this, I am just very frustrated with my first install of linux right now. So far NOTHING has worked yet! i havn't been able to compile ANYTHING and can't even get xwindows to start right without this driver!
