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 i´m 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
I´m running the kernel totally static cause i didn´t get the init-modules-tools to work appropriate. Also i´m using Xfree version 4.3.0
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
The drivers released from nvidia do not support 2.6
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 :)
Re: Driver problem with kernel 2.6.0
But installing them should be no problem.
Get the latest release e.g. from
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
