Hi! I think I got all the difficult situations as discribed in your postings.
(1) I down loaded the NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2960.rh72.i386.rpm and NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-2960.i386.rpm and installed as per README. I am fine with the kernel installation. But, error message with thye GLX installation. However, when I tried to reinstall the GLX package again, it says GLX package is already installed?! I then double confirm kernel and GLX package installed. I editted the XFree86Config-4 file as recommended in README. I "startx", error message "
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVdriver kernel module!
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***
(EE) Screens found, but none have a useable configuration
Fatal screens error:
no screens found"
No way out, I tried the following!
(2) I downloaded the tarballs - NVIDIA_kernel.tar.gz and NVIDIA_GLX.tar.gz. Make install went well with the GLX but error message for the kernel "
/usr/include/linux/modversions.h:1:2: #error modules should never use kernel-headers system headers,
/usr/include/linux/modversions.h:2:2: #error but rather header from an appropriate kernel-source package
/usr/include/linux/modversions.h:3:2: #error Change -I/usr/src/linux/include (or similar) to
/usr/include/linux/modversions.h:4:2: # error - I/lib/modules/$ (uname -r)/build/include
/usr/include/linux/modversions.h:5:2: #error to build against the currently-running kernel.
make: *** [nv.o] Error 1"
What went wrong??!!
My notebook is Acer TravelMate 630 with Intel 1.6G, NVIDIA GForce 2 Go card, and LCD that can support 1024x768.
I appreciate for your help and guild.
