Default nVidia driver intsllation problem on Red Hat EL 4

Hello every body,

I am trying to install the nVidia driver (nvidia-install --update). After some checks and downloads, the installer say that compiling the driver is needed. After some time the system crashes with a this message:

Process insmod (pid:5948, threadinf 000001002d8ba000, task 000001003d58c7f0)
Stack: ffffffffa06af94f 000001002d8bbf08 ffffffffa0a34260 000001002a05c030…..

<0> Kernel Panic – no syncing: Oops



The kernel version is (cat /proc/version):

Linux version 2.6.9-42.0.10.EL (brewbuilder@ls20-bc1-14.build.redhat.com) (gcc version 3.4.6 20060404 (Red Hat 3.4.6-3)) #1 Fri Feb 16 17:03:28 EST 2007

I have tried with the smp version of this kernel with same result.

The processor are (cat /proc/cpuinfo):

processor : 0

And the kernel sources are placed in (ls /usr/src/)

I send attached the intaller output log.

There is a working driver for the “non-smp” kernel but we want to run a smp kernel.

Any help will be very apreciated

Regards

Guillermo
