Default Re: Help on installing nForce Driver in RH Linux 9.0

I had no trouble building the src.rpm and installing it for my basic A7N8X mobo running Fedora Core 1 test1 with linux kernel 2.4.22-1.2115.nptl. I installed the src.rpm in my home directory and built it as myself, then installed the resulting .rpm as root. I used the following ~/.rpmmacros file to install it in my home directory...
%_topdir /home/myname/rpms

I also had the 'kernel-source' package installed before I started. The result
is found in /usr/src/linux-2.4... or you can 'rpm -qa |grep kernel-souce'.

Oh, the rpm should have added the alias to your /etc/modules.conf file. Check that file to make sure it is found then check these files or use
/etc/sysconfig/network (particularly the GATEWAY)
/etc/sysconfig/networking-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 (and eth1?)

Hope this helps.
