Mandrake 9.2 and Kernel Source woes
OK, i'm trying to get the nvidia drivers to work, tried current but after browsing these forums i'm actively trying to get the 4363 .run file to work.
I'm figuring that it's something to do with my kernel source..in /usr/src i have:
also i have "linux" which is symlinked to the 21mdk
when i try to sh the .run file it can't find the kernel source (BTW uname-r returns "2.4.22-10mdk"
so i tried adding the --kernel-include-path option with the respective include directories for all three (really 2) source options, this gets the nvidia-installer much farther, all the way to building the kernel module, but after it's done building there is an "ERROR: Unable to load nvidia.o..." error in the nvidia-installer and then the installer quits. It goes on to say that it's probably because it was built with the wrong kernel headers.
inspecting /var/log/nvidia-installer.log shows ./usr/src/nv/nvidia.o has "unresolved symbols" and there is a "Hint: you are are trying to load a module without a GPL compliant license, contact the module supplier for help"
is insmod tricked in mandrake to only allow GPL-ed modules somehow? More to the point - anyone know how i can get a nvidia driver working?
You don't have the kernel-source rpm installed for the version of the kernel you are running. Type:
ls -l /usr/src/linux
What kernel does it say you are running? is it the same one that you linked to in /usr/src/linux?
sorry, though i typed that in my post....
[root@localhost root]# uname -r
[root@localhost root]# ls -l /usr/src/
