Default Re: 1.0-8174 isntaller cannot determine kernel version

Yes /usr/src/linux-2.4.21-27.EL exists when I install the kernel-source

[jtsai@rhdual10]/usr/src: ll | grep linux
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 Dec 8 14:10 linux-2.4 -> linux-2.4.21-27.EL
drwxr-xr-x 16 root root 4096 Dec 8 14:10 linux-2.4.21-27.EL


Attached is the nvidia-installer.log with the -s option
It still has the "No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel" error but proceeds to recompile it anyways.

@jtsai: OK, does the attached `nvidia-settings` binary work better for you? You can replace the one in the 1.0-8174 .run package with the following commands:

# sh /path/to/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8174-pkg1.run --extract-only
# cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8174-pkg1
# unzip -o /path/to/nvidia-installer.zip
# cd ../
# sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8174-pkg1/usr/bin/makeself.sh \
--target-os Linux --target-arch x86 NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8174-pkg1 NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8174-pkg1.run \
"NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86 1.0-8174" \
./nvidia-installer

jtsai,
Thanks for the updated log. The driver installed successfully, so the only problem remaining is the lack of the pre-compiled interfaces, which zander is helping you out with.

zander and netllama:

Yes I think this is working much better. I also tried --add-this-kernel on RHEL30WSU6 and it seems to work.

Thanks so much! I definitely appreciate your timely and qualified responses.

hi ive been trying to install this driver but i always got the kernel source error, after applying the patch it seemed to compile ok but now i get an error at the end that just tells me to look at the log, if someone could take a look and let me know what the problem could be it would be a big help. thnx

1.0-8174 is no longer supported, and isn't expected to build against a recent kernel. Please use 1.0-8776 or 1.0-9626.

Thanks,
Lonni
