my system is mandriva 2006 with kernel 2.6.12-22.
i've tried to install the nvidia-driver (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8762-pkg1 and also NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7182-pkg1), first i had problems to find my kernel sources (updated kernel in another directory). now i have specified the path by the "--kernel-source-path" command, and now it works so far.
then the log file has many entries of configuring kernel, and finally, there occurs following error:
Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'. This happens most
frequently when this kernel module was built against the wrong or
improperly configured kernel sources, with a version of gcc that differs
from the one used to build the target kernel, or if a driver such as
rivafb/nvidiafb is present and prevents the NVIDIA kernel module from
obtaining ownership of the NVIDIA graphics device(s).
the log file says furthermore:
Kernel module load error: insmod: error inserting './usr/src/nv/nvidia.ko':
-1 Invalid module format
where can i get this file?
