but without the make: *** [nv.o] Error 1
I turned off the frame buffer, so now the default drivers that come with XFree86 are allowing me to use X Windows. But I still want the accelerated graphics drivers. I'm getting closer.
I'm not sure which of these methods I'm supposed to follow though:
That's strange - it worked on two machines (Geforce2 and Geforce4) where I tried it...
The method to use depends on your kernel: is it Debian-supplied (unlikely , as you have a 2.4.19) or did you compile it yourself?
With a self-compiled kernel you have to do
$ cd /usr/src/kernel-source-2.4.1x-<flavor if any>
$ make-kpkg modules_image
instead of the "$ debian/rules"-thingy in /usr/source/modules
Does that work for you?
If you still get unresolved symbols try
$ depmod -a
