Yet another NOOB w/Suse 9.0 net issues
Okay, I downloaded the Nvidia unified drivers (1.0-0261), installed the binary RPM, and got this:
linux:/work # depmod -a
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.21-override-athlon/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.21-override-athlon/kernel/drivers/sound/nvaudio.o
uname -a returns this: linux 2.4.21-166-athlon #1 Thu Dec 18 18:24:05 UTC 2003 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux. This is SuSE 9.0, and I've pulled down all the updates from SuSE.com in the last couple of days with autoupdate.
I am aware of forcedeth, but their precompiled module that they recommend for Suse does not bind, giving symbol errors. The txt files also don't make sense to me. It's been too long since I patched kernel source and I've forgotten how to use these files.
What on earth do I have to do to keep from loading an idiot cheapo ethernet card into the box just to get the network going with Linux?
