4180 GLX makefile warning!
(This is RH7.3 with gcc 2.96)
OK now I see something, the NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4180 tarball attempts to produce a module named nv-kernel.o and the NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4180 tarball has a precompiled module nvidia_drv.o. Yuk.
Warning: The first thing the GLX makefile does is wipe out your existing drivers without backing them up:
Removing all old and conflicting files!
rm -f //usr/lib64/libGL.*
rm -f //usr/lib64/libGLcore.*
rm -f //usr/X11R6/lib64/libGL.*
This package appears to have a precompiled nvidia_drv.o:
-rwx------ 1 wsanders wsanders 609032 Dec 4 09:01 nvidia_drv.o*
I'm assuming this is the same module that the NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4180 tarball eventually is supposed to produce, but is named nv-linux.o, instead?
Comment in GLtarball Makefile:
# this is pretty brain-dead, but should be good enough to get started
The kernel source make bombs off with
cc1: Invalid option `cmodel=kernel'
so I'm guessing i need gcc 3-something anyway to buildthis.
