On Scientific Linux 6 (perhaps also on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6), trying to load the compiled kernel module for legacy driver 96.43.19 fails with an error message like this:
insmod: error inserting './usr/src/nv/nvidia.ko': -1 Accessing a corrupted shared library
Simultaneously, this is logged:
Verify ELF error [sec 33 note 12] (assertion 286)
Module failed ELF checks
The installer quits after it has compiled the module and failed to load it. I'm attaching the log.
