I did try to install kernel_source-2.4.18-11.i386.rpm
as 'my' kernel-source-2.4.7-18.i386.rpm didn't seem to work. It did work with a warning: kernel-source-2.4.18-11.i386.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NO KEY, key ID 897da07a
Nvidia_kernel still refused to build...so i rushed to:
I did try to unistall my old "needed(=binutils etc)" rpms, but run immediately to problems with many dpendecies. So I did -Uvh for all (3 together as recommended in the first post, others separately after that)
because gcc-3.2-0.1 was needed by 4 other packages... In addition binutils gave me warning: binutils-184.108.40.206.2.i386.rpm:Header V3 DSA signature NO Key, key ID 897da07a , but installed itself.
if I did rpm -qa | grep xxx.xxx
they all were installed, except gcc for which I still had 3.2-0.1
rpm -i kernel-source-2.4.18-11.i386.rpm installed again with an warning: kernel-source-2.4.18-11.i386.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature NO Key, key ID 897da07a
When I did try to rebuild GLX and kernel rpms from SRPM directory, both errored:
rpmbuild: relocation error: rpmbuild: undefined symbol: rpmcliRcfile
i'm not sure has this anything to do that all but my src dir contains 3 directories: linux-2.4.18, linux-2.4.18-11 and redhat...kernel headers I used for staroffice installation I know are in linux-2.4.18...
