Default Re: Can not install 177.13 (-rt kernel?)

Hi there,

I am trying to install the 177.13 nvidia driver manually using the method described in this thread, with and without the patch. The kernel module compiles after I give the installer the path to the linux headers. However, after building, I get the error:

Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'

The log file lists a kernel module load error:

insmod: error inserting './usr/src/nv/nvidia.ko': -1 Invalid module format

I get the same result if I use the nvidia 173.14 installer, with and without the patch.

Here are my system stats:

Intel x86_64
Ubuntu 8.04, 2.6.24-19 or kernel
GeForce 9800 GX2
gcc 4.2.3

Thanks for your help.
