Unhappy 3dforce4 MX440-8X going to vesa

My 3DForce4 MX440-8X card from Jaton Corp. is giving me problems when configuring.

My system is a plain vanilla Redhat 8.0 Workstation install, with kernel v. 2.4.20 and Xfree86 v. 2.2.1 (Newest updates with redhats up2date).

The system itself is AMD Athlon 1900+.

The system is not detecting the card but is returning bogus information a couple of times before selecting a generic VESA driver.

I have noticed there is a kernel update to version 2.4.18 on the Nvidia site, but will this work also for 2.4.20 - Or will I need to install 2.4.18 before using the update? (What will btw. happen if I update the kernel from up2date in the future?)

Attached are my configuration and log files.

Hope you can help!



Just want to add that I tried to use the source package, and it starts by complains about kernel headers. It ends with

nvnet.c:1355: warning: implicit declaration of function `netif_device_attach'nvnet.c: At top level:
nvnet.c:99: storage size of `nvnet_driver' isn't known
make[1]: *** [nvnet.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/nforce/nvnet'
make: *** [nvnet_make] Error 2
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.46396 (%build)

I used the following command as rpm --rebuild is not recognized anymore:
rpmbuild --rebuild NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.src.rpm
