Hey, hopefully you guys can help out. I'm running SuSE 9.1 Professional. I had previously installed the 6111 driver with no problems, and had OpenGL working like a charm, had twinview set up, and everything was just beautiful. However, I decided it was time to update via the YaST Online Update (YOU) tool within SuSE. I did this, and apparently a kernel update was one of the 40 or 50 updates/patches that I downloaded and installed (Iwent with all the recommended updates).
After the update, I had to reinstall the 6111 driver because of the kernel update. Not knowing really about compiling kernels and whatnot, I tried to install the driver. I first got a message saying that no precompiled kernel interface was found to match my kernel. It asked if I would like to attempt to download it from nvidia. If I choose no, obviously the install will not let me go further. If I choose yes, it searches the ftp site, but doesn't find what it's looking for. It then says the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for my kernel. Selecting OK says it cannot find the kernel source tree, and to use the --kernel-source-path= commandline option.
This is all and good, so I checked out the SuSE 6111 install directions
, and started to follow the instructions for installing and configuring the kernel for those who did not want to use YOU (I did this previously, and it didn't work, so I installed manually before). The first step is to cd into /use/src/linux, where the kernel source should be. But I do not have this directory! I'm using kernel 2.6.5-7.104 right now, and I have no idea where the source files are to compile or whatever I have to do with them.
Can anyone lead me in the right direction? TIA
