Suse 9.0 and NVidia NIC installation problem
 
Hi,

README at nvidia.com says regarding source rpm installation that I should type:

rpm - - rebuild nforce{package na****-1.0-1.src.rpm

to install the package NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.src.rpm

I typed:

rpm --rebuild NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.src.rpm

and get a list of options for rpm, rebuild is not one of them. The only option that is similar is –rebuilddb

I tried it too,

rpm --rebuilddb NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.src.rpm

Computer does something for few seconds and them gives me no information whatsoever regarding the place where SRPM was compiled to. I browsed /usr/src/ directory but could not find anything either.


So, the README (which accompanies the driver) does not work and I have no idea what to do. Please refer me to working instructions on how to install the driver. I have Kernel 2.4.21 and should be fine given that you provide special instructions for Kernels that precede 2.4.20

Also, here is what I got by using rpmbuild command instead of rebuild as stated in readme

Seems to me that SRPM was not compiled either since rpm generates bad exit error. That is why asked before if the driver works at all.


PS. Someone said that Linux is 98% ready to be adopted to desktop, but it is 2% that kill. Very true in my case so far.

Hello!

I downloaded SuSE 9.0 NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.suse90.i586.rpm from http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_nforce_1.0-0261 and just double-clicked the .rpm file and clicked a "install button (dont remember exactly name) and it installed fine i think.

Except the NIC wont work, but USB works and no longer hang during boot.

MSI K7N Delta (i think).

Hello,

i have a problem with the installation of the ethernet nvidia drivers. I downloaded the nvidia.src.rpm and rebuild it with my kernel, but the ethernet driver doesn't work.

When i write insmod nvnet.o, suse load the driver and my ethernet work.

My question: how can i load the driver at startup ???


sorry for my bad english
