You will need to remove the current Nvidia rpm's. They were compiled for your 2.4.18_18.8.0 kernel.
So start with this
rpm -e NVIDIA_GLX
rpm -e NVIDIA_kernel
Once those are removed, make new ones for your 2.4.18-24.8.0 kernel. I would suggest grabbing the kernel
drivers as well as the GLX
Then do the following
rpmbuild --rebuild NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.src.rpm
rpmbuild --rebuild NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4191.src.rpm
rpm -ivh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4191.i386.rpm
Then edit /etc/X11/XF86Config(-4)
. Making sure the driver is nvidia
, "Load" "glx"
is there. Once that is done all that's left is init 3
then init 5
. You should be up and going then.
Yes you need to assign an IRQ to your video, other than that you should be seeing the Nvidia Logo as X starts up.
