Nforce issues with SuSE 9.1
 
I attempted to run the nforce-1.0-0274.tar on my newly installed SuSE 9.1 box and am having trouble getting the source drivers to compile. I looked over the help page and installed all the necessary tools for development. Everything installed with no problems from YaST's software update. Next I tried the following instructions from the help page:

Use the following commands to set up your development environment

example% cd <directory with the rpm file>
example% su
Password: ******
example# pushd /usr/src/linux
example# make cloneconfig

This is what I got:

computer@linux:/tmp> su
Password:
linux:/tmp # pushd /usr/src/linux
/usr/src/linux /tmp
linux:/usr/src/linux # make cloneconfig
HOSTCC scripts/basic/fixdep
HOSTCC scripts/basic/split-include
HOSTCC scripts/basic/docproc
-include /var/adm/running-kernel.make

The .config file is a merged configuration; please remove it by hand before crea
ting your own. You can use one of the files arch/i386/defconfig.* as a template.

make[1]: *** [check-meta] Error 1
make: *** [cloneconfig] Error 2

Now, I continued with the steps listed in the help document just to see what would happen, but as you can probably image it didn't pan out. Just by installing SuSE 9.1 my sound and LAN both work off the bat, which seems to be most peoples' issue. This is not mine, my issue is that some very important system devices are not being recognized, such as the memory controllers and AGP slot. Any help would be appreciated, please note that I am only a little more than a step above a noob and require semi-simple instructions.

Made some progress! I upgraded my BIOS and changed some setting inside to give Linux and easier time. First, I switched off the PnP OS. Secondly, I turn ACPI off. Installed SuSE 9.1 again. Did just as before, went through the installation tutorial and added all the required development packages, only this time I got a different error at a different point in setting up the development environment. As before here are the instruction that I am using:

Use the following commands to set up your development environment

example% cd <directory with the rpm file>
example% su
Password: ******
example# pushd /usr/src/linux
example# make cloneconfig
example# make dep

What I did was:

computer@linux:/tmp> su
Password:
linux:/tmp # pushd /usr/src/linux
/usr/src/linux /tmp
linux:/usr/src/linux # make cloneconfig
linux:/usr/src/linux # make dep
*** Warning: make dep is unnecessary now.

Should I just ignore this message and go ahead with the tar install? Or is there something I can do to force the make dep?

Re: Nforce issues with SuSE 9.1
 
I'm having similar problems on a Shuttle motherboard.

Installing Suse8.1 with the 0274 drivers worked fine, was able to see the nvidia ethernet chipset just fine using the RPM. Suse9.1 claims to have installed and even lets me ping myself but no one else on the network nor can they ping this box.

Any ideas?

I think there must be a problem with the new 2.6 kernel.

I heave got the same problems and I have everything required installed. I is possible, that the nForce driver is programmed for the 2.4 kernel but not for the 2.6.

If there is another explanation, please help...
