driver 1.0-5336 + kernel 2.6.3 + debian sid (with GeForce2 MX)

Hello !

I've just installed Linux on my computer. I compiled the kernel 2.6.3 when I was still under Debian Woody, and I dist-upgraded to Debian Sid.

Before configure XFree, I downloaded nVidia drivers version 1.0-5336.

Before launching the installer, I set :
export IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH=yes
(to avoid the differences of version of the C compiler between Woody and Sid)

And, I launched the installer :
sh /usr/local/src/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run

After built the kernel module, an error message is displayed and said something like this :
ERROR: Unable de load the kernel module "nvidia.ko".

Could you help me about it, please ?

I join the nvidia_installer.log file if you need it...

Thank you :)

Why in the world would you want to ignore the CC mismatch? The debian cc is 2.95, and if you're compiling linux 2.6.3 with gcc 2.95, then I think you also want to compile the nv interface with the same compiler. Instead, I think you want apt-get install gcc-2.95; export CC=/usr/bin/gcc-2.95 before running the installer.

i got the same problem under slackware 9.0 - 2.6.3 ... but i didnt ignore the CC mismatch... and still the problem exsists. it's something with the kernel maybe...

Tons of lossgage with 2.6 kernels
 
Yeah, me too. If you look around there are many threads describing this problem. One solution is to install some package ... I forget its name but its 2.4 equivalent is "modutils". That doesn't work for most ppl though.

Yes, and you are going to need this anyway if you have any intention of rebuilding the kernel.
