NVidia x86_64-1.0-8756 and RHEL 4
 
Dear all,
after a lot of pain, finally I got to start the 8756 installer, the compilation run up to 100% but at the end there is the following error:
ERROR: Unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module.

Inspecting the log file I found many errors like:

include/linux/syscalls.h: At top level:

...and before the final crash:

This is the n-th installation of Nvidia drivers, but honestly it's the hardest and weirdest I ever got!
Some data about that computer:

# uname -a
Linux localhost.localhost 2.6.9-34.EL #1 Fri Feb 24 16:46:41 EST 2006 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

At my opinion, there is a problem about kernel headers, but I'm not expert enoght to be shure.
If someone could help me, it would be great.
Many thanks in advance,

Stefano

Re: NVidia x86_64-1.0-8756 and RHEL 4
 
Without seeing the full installer log, its hard to say what the exact problem is, however for RHEL4, all you need to install are the kernel & kernel-devel RPMs that Redhat provides. I'm guessing that you're trying to specify a kernel-source path to the driver, which is unneccesary.

Thanks,
Lonni
