Default Re: Fedora Core 3 and nVidia drivers - Solution

Hi 0db,

thanks for publishing this information. I recently upgraded from RH9 to Fedora 5 and X-Windows were gone. After a lot of search I found out that I had to install a new nvidia driver. I downloaded the latest NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-xxxx-pkg1.run and followed your instructions.
However, after

#sh Nvidia-Linux-x86-1.0-7174-pkg1.run --extract-only
#cd Nvidia-Linux-x86-1.0-7174-pkg1/usr/src/nv
#make install

I received this:
=============================================
sh ./conftest.sh "cc" "cc" /lib/modules/2.6.15-1.2054_FC5/build /lib/modules/2.6.15-1.2054_FC5/build cc_sanity_check full_output
sh ./conftest.sh "cc" "cc" /lib/modules/2.6.15-1.2054_FC5/build /lib/modules/2.6.15-1.2054_FC5/build select_makefile full_output
If you are using a Linux 2.4 kernel, please make sure
you either have configured kernel sources matching your
kernel or the correct set of kernel headers installed
on your system.

If you are using a Linux 2.6 kernel, please make sure
you have configured kernel sources matching your kernel
installed on your system. If you specified a separate
output directory using either the "KBUILD_OUTPUT" or
the "O" KBUILD parameter, make sure to specify this
directory with the SYSOUT environment variable or with
the equivalent nvidia-installer command line option.

Depending on where and how the kernel sources (or the
kernel headers) were installed, you may need to specify
their location with the SYSSRC environment variable or
the equivalent nvidia-installer command line option.

*** Unable to determine the target kernel version. ***

================================================

which means I guess that I don't have a precompiled kernel interface.

Maybe you could help me with this.

uname -r shows a 2.6xxx-FC5 something kernel, however, in /usr/src I only see 2.4.xx kernels. I guess I have to use the SYSSRC environment variable to point to the 2.6 kernel, but where is it located? Is there something else?

Thanks in advance.

John.

Looks like you need to install the linux-headers for your kernel, which seems to be 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5
