vanilla 2.4.22 kernel installation problems
 
1 Attachment(s)
I am trying to install the drivers for a geforce FX 5200 on a Fedora core 1 installation. I recompiled a new vanilla 2.4.22 kernel (the same version as the FC1 kernel). The drivers installed fine on teh FC1 Kernel but not on the vanilla kernel (which is what I need). I have attached the installer log. However when I try to compile and install the drivers manually (using the make file in the package) i get a slightly more detailed error.

echo "nvidia.o installed successfully."; \

Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license
and it has unresolved symbols. The module may be trying to access
GPLONLY symbols but the problem is more likely to be a coding or
user error. Contact the module supplier for assistance, only they
can help you.

The kernel was compiled on the same version of gcc as the one that I have. I have tried searching the forum but I could not find a solution.

Thank you for any help you can provide.

Thank you for reporting this problem, it looks like this is a regression in recent NVIDIA Linux graphics driver releases.

Please try the following:
# sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-100.14.09-pkg1.run --apply-patch /path/to/NVIDIA_kernel-100.14.09-325790.diff.txt
# sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-100.14.09-pkg1-custom.run

Howdy,

Just wanted to say that it helped me out as well, thank you!
After reading all about how good Slackware is I decided to give it a go and get rid of Xubuntu. Unfortunately X wouldn't start after the installation which immediately caused a challange :)
I tried to install the 100.14.11 version and bumped into the same problem. So decided to download the .09 version + patch like mentioned in this thread.

Thanks again.

René

I should probably mention that the patch should also work with 100.14.11.
