chmod 777 Makefile
I then change falign to malign
Save and quit vi
I even vi Makefile again to make sure it saved the changes
cd /home /[username] \\Dir where I keep the src.rpm file
rpm --rebuild NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248.src.rpm
Only to get the same error again
Could you please tell me what is that I'm doing wrong?
Rebuilding the SRPM is overwriting the changes you made. It's probably best to grab the tarball and use that. You'll want to do the following:
tar xzvf NVIDIA-nforce-1.0-0248.tar.gz
*edit the Makefile to change -falign to -malign*
make; make install
The Makefile issue will be fixed in the next version of the driver.
