nOOb seeks install help
hi, iam running redhat 8.0 and trying to install the driver for my Gforce 4 MX
But it seems too have a problem, locating the kernel source something?!
ive recently updated the kernel too 2.4.20-28.8 with an RPM package
ive also tried installing the source rpm and still no luck....
any able to help? heh
I'm not a redhat user, so i may be wrong, but you probably need the kernels corresponding development rpm.
It is probably named something like 2.4.20-28.8-devel.rpm (i may be wrong)
This should have all the required header files for the installer to compile the driver.
Hope this helps
this rpm will install the correct files too /usr/src
where it seems too want the files too be installed??
ok.... get the correct source kernel installed now but getting a new error LOL
ERROR Unable to determine the NVIDIA kernel module filename
ake: *** [select_makefile] Error 1
now how do i fix this problem?
You should have installed a file named: kernel-source-2.4.20-28.8.i386.src.rpm
This has the correct sources for your current kernel, please verify you are using the kernel you think you're using: uname -r
You can avoid the hassle of the compilation if you go get an RPM for the driver, which you can find here: http://atrpms.physik.fu-berlin.de/di...idia-graphics/
The kernel driver name problem may be fixed by cleaning out the kernel source and setting it back to a good known condition. As root run these commands:
mv .config config
mv config .config
This should clean things up, then try the driver build again.
