can't modprobe nvidia [Resolved] but now i've a blank screen on startx
Kernel 2.6 (gentoo)

1.0.5336 nvidia drivers

when i modprobe nvidia, i've got this error :

FATAL: Error inserting nvidia (/lib/modules/2.6.1-gentoo/video/nvidia.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)

here my dmesg contents :

nvidia: no version magic, tainting kernel.
nvidia: module license 'NVIDIA' taints kernel.
nvidia: Unknown symbol class_simple_device_add
nvidia: Unknown symbol class_simple_destroy
nvidia: Unknown symbol class_simple_device_remove
nvidia: Unknown symbol class_simple_create

any ideas ?

PS : i'd looked on the forum, but can't find a solution to my problem.

maybe this thread has an answer for ya ;)


I also think with gentoo you can get the nvidia drivers from there emerge system. Something like emerge nvidia
I am not sure as I do not use gentoo but I have played with it a while back.

This looks like an emerge, the stock NVIDIA driver does not reference any of these symbols (Gentoo recently added the class_simple code for udev support).

Ok thanks i've Solved the problem by upgrading to 2.6.2 kernel

But I still have problems :

I've got a blank screen when startx.

in XFree86.0.log I've :
(WW) LoadModule: given non-canonical module name "nvidia.o"


(EE) no devices detected no screen found.
