Default Re: ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module ‘nvidia.o’

Ok farmer method now, do not know what MDK has done there or you...
Jump to /usr/src/linux-2.4.22-28mdk and type

make menuconfig

the config menu appears. Exit it. Then type

make depend

Then try the installer again. If no go --->

Go to the location where the nVidia driver is and type

sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run --extract-only

It will be extracted to the subdir.

Edit the Makefile at the "install line" like this wo kernel_module_install after it:
...
install:
@echo "Removing all old and conflicting files!"
...
...

Now change to NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1/usr/src/nv and type

make install

only the kernel module will now installed.

Then back to the top of the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1 and again for the GXL driver.

make install

If allright, edit /etc/X11/XF86Config
...
Section "Module"
Load "dbe"
Load "extmod"
Load "glx"
Load "freetype"
Load "type1"
Load "v4l"
EndSection
...
Section "Device"
...
Driver "nvidia"
...

et voila?
