1.0.5336+kernel-2.6.1+debian please help!
I've tried ALL of the ways told in nvidia/minion.de/others FAQs and READMEs for installing nvidia drivers.

Xserver crashes all the time with signal 11.
What i always get is an "unresolved simbols in /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.o" messages.

I tried first using kernel 2.6.0 provided by debian, nvidia-kernel-source/nvidia-glx/nvidia-kernel-common V=1.0.5328 with minion.de patches.

Then with kernel 2.6.1 from kernel.org.
Then with kernel 2.6.1 and 1.0.5336 of nvidia drivers (debian packages).
Then with nvidia installers NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-53[XX]-pkg[Y].run (XX,Y=28,0 ; 36,0 ; 36,1) uninstalling cleanly between each method.
Compile process where all ok.
Gcc = 2.95-4 (kernel and nvidia modules)
nv didn't work also, but the error pointed to other function in nv_drv.o.

My hardware is:
chipset: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8366/A/7 [Apollo KT266/A/333]
video: nVidia Corporation NV11 [GeForce2 MX/MX 400] (rev b2)
cpu: Athlon XP 2000+

I tried also the boot parameters acpi=off and noacpi, and "Option" "NvAgp" "1" in XF86Config-4, in all combinations with the above drivers.

Thanks a LOOOOT if anybody can help...

I also desactivated and also recompile kernel without any framebuffers.

man, I need to reinstall Slackware or give Debian a go on my machine now that there's SATA support... anyway, Andy will most assuredly tell you to rerun X with 'startx -- -logverbose 5' and post the log, so go ahead and get that up for when he sees this.

Getting unresolved symbols generally means your kernel source tree configuration and your running kernel are out of sync.


Coyote 01-29-04 06:43 PM

I thought of that, and also for compiling with diferent versions of gcc.
but I checked that. I just compiled kernel just once (to remove framebuffers), and after that, installing it and rebooting. Then i compiled & installed all the nvidia stuff by all ways (via nvidia installers and the debian way).
So, the runing kernel is the same as the /usr/src/linux tree.

Is there any other possible reason, or something wrong with the way I'm doing?

Andy Mecham 01-29-04 06:45 PM

Well, let's clarify - are you getting unresolved symbols when you run 'depmod -a', or in your X log?


Coyote 01-29-04 06:54 PM

In the X log.

The module doesn't give any error when adding it to the kernel.

I'll run it again to get the exact messages...

BTW, the log shows a repeated message:

Not loading .note.GNU-stack
