NFORCE Network drivers not working
 
Ok, I have a server install of Kubuntu Breezy 5.10. I only have gcc-4.0 available to me. Does the installer work with 4.0, it says i need 3.4. It fails after I tell the installer to not abort. Any plans on updating your gcc any time soon?

Any other ideas?

Re: NFORCE Network drivers not working
 
Which installer are you referring to? If its the NFORCE driver, it has no gcc version limitations, so please post your installer log.

Thanks,
Lonni

Re: NFORCE Network drivers not working
 
Hi.

Your problem is caused by the fact that ubuntu comes with gcc4 but the kernel you are using with compiled with gcc3.4.

If you recompile the kernel yourself this will solve the issue.

However this is easier.

- download gcc-3.4

cd “directory where you have the nvidia installer”
su
CC=gcc-3.4
export CC

exit

CC=gcc-3.4
export CC

then run installed - it will work

Re: NFORCE Network drivers not working
 
Ok, sorry it took so long to get back. I'm working on this again now. I am trying to install the NFORCE drivers from the NFORCE-Linux-x86-1.0-0310-pkg1.run file.

Now I am getting that my kernel source tree is not installed. I installed the kernel-source package from apt, but it still says it. Here is my installer log:

Any help?

Re: NFORCE Network drivers not working
 
Also, I tried exporting the CC var, that didn't work either.

Re: NFORCE Network drivers not working
 
Ok, I made some progress on my own. For k/ubuntu, you need to install the package linux-headers, not kernel-source. I also had to install gcc-3.4 not just export the CC var.

Here are the commands I used.

Code:

sudo apt-get install build-essential
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`
sudo apt-get install gcc-3.4

sudo sh NFORCE-xxx.run

This actually got the drivers installed, but yet I still have no sound. I assume now the sound just needs to be configured, but I have no clue on how to do this. I had to put a different network card in the box, so I am actually not using the network card yet either. Any new ideas?

Re: NFORCE Network drivers not working
 
Instructions for setting up sound with nvsound are in the release notes that are included with the driver.

Why do you believe that you need the NFORCE driver at all? For nearly all motherboards, the in-kernel drivers are sufficient.

Thanks,
Lonni

nuclearfly 03-01-06 12:55 PM

Re: NFORCE Network drivers not working
 
Neither the sound or network devices appeared in the system when I installed the distro. Neither the sound or network "just worked" when I installed. This signals to me that I might need the drivers.

netllama 03-01-06 01:03 PM

Re: NFORCE Network drivers not working
 
It could mean that your kernel is too old to have the drivers, or your distribution just failed to configure the system correctly with the drivers that it had.

What kind of motherboard are you using?

Please generate and post an nforce-bug-report.log

Thanks,
Lonni

Re: NFORCE Network drivers not working
 
My motherboard is an Asus A8N-VM CSM

I'm using a server install of Kubuntu 5.10 Breezy. I believe its a 2.4 kernel.. I will check the version tonight. How do I generate the bug log you are speaking of? I will post that tongiht as well.

netllama 03-01-06 01:19 PM

Re: NFORCE Network drivers not working
 
The A8N-VM CSM has already been discussed in another thread on this forum. I'd suggest you read that thread for solutions to the problems that you are reporting.

Thanks,
Lonni

Re: NFORCE Network drivers not working
 
Looks like I'll just wait until a newer kernel comes out with the 6.04 release of kubuntu.
