Driver problem with kernel 2.6.0
 
Trying to install the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5328-pkg1.run driver with my 2.6.0 kernel but it wont work at all.

This is the error message im recieving:

ERROR: The kernel header file
'/lib/modules/2.6.0/build/include/linux/modversions.h' does not
exist. The most likely reason for this is that the kernel header
files in '/lib/modules/2.6.0/build/include' have not been
configured.

Im running the kernel totally static cause i didnt get the init-modules-tools to work appropriate. Also im using Xfree version 4.3.0
Redhat 9

All minimun software requirements are met except
Kernel modutils 2.1.121 # insmod -V.
module-init-tools version 0.9.15-pre4

You still need the patch from

http://www.minion.de

The drivers released from nvidia do not support 2.6

modules ..
 
the nvidia is always compiled as a module. if you have no support for loading modules in the kernel, you will not be able to install nvidia drivers.

ps: if your run this computer as a desktop mashine and not a server, try debian or gentoo :)

OK. I read over this.

But installing them should be no problem.

Get the latest release e.g. from
ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kerne...rusty/modules/
and follow the instructions given in the readme (incl. doing make moveold at the beginning).

Then modprobe should work as a kind of wrapper: If you use kernel 2.4 it calls modprobe.old and therefore you cannot see any difference. Same for insmod, etc.

The new module-init-tools are only used if you boot 2.6
