problems installing with kernel 2.6.20
 
Hi,

I'm trying to install the Nvidia driver using Ingo Molnar's RT kernel 2.6.20 on Fedora Core 6, but the installation fails with this error:

WARNING: could not find /home/hector/Desktop/NV/usr/src/nv/.nv-kernel.o.cmd
for /home/hector/Desktop/NV/usr/src/nv/nv-kernel.o
FATAL: modpost: GPL-incompatible module nvidia.ko uses GPL-only symbol 'paravirt_ops'
make[3]: *** [__modpost] Error 1
make[2]: *** [modules] Error 2
NVIDIA: left KBUILD.
nvidia.ko failed to build!
make[1]: *** [module] Error 1
make: *** [module] Error 2

I found a solution posted here for similar error but related to symbol lockdep_init_map.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Hector

My guess is this problem is specific to kernels built with CONFIG_PARAVIRT; please also see http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show....php?p=1146334.

I don't understand the posts in the link i've disabeled CONFIG_HIGHPTE in .config and recompiled my kernel but it didn't seem to fix the problem for me

Ubuntu 6.10
kernel 2.6.20

I am running suse 10.2 and had the same video problem.
I removed the nvidia X11 driver and now it runs justt fine.

My question is, how to resume nvidia 3d accelerator?
