After succesfully downloading and compiling, i got this when try to install the kernel rpm (was my first step, havent tried yet to compile/install GLX )
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.18-11smp/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver
/lib/modules/2.4.18-11smp/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver: kernel-module version mismatch
/lib/modules/2.4.18-11smp/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver was compiled for kernel version 2.4.18-11custom
while this kernel is version 2.4.18-11smp.
/lib/modules/2.4.18-11smp/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.18-11smp/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver failed
/lib/modules/2.4.18-11smp/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver: insmod NVdriver failed
NVdriver installed successfully
What should I do to compile for smp kernels?
This is easy (Nvidia for Monoprocessor and kernel multiprocessor)
When you compile your kernel, kernel version is in file
In redhat, in null , 2.4.18-11custom
You need to change it to 11smp , and save
Then, you need to configure your kernel, to adequate to smp.
Default is Uniprocessor.
You need to do (in /usr/src/linux-2.4 directory ) make menuconfig
and configure your options. You need to able support for SMP (multiprocessor )
Save your configuration
and do: "make dep clean"
I think, this is sufficient to RE-compile Nvidia drivers, not need to compile kernel, and avoid the above problems.
I don't have SMP system, but I've hear that there are some problems with nvidia and SMP.
