Unhappy Problems loading the kernel module

Hi,

I'm a Conectiva Linux 8 user and when I try to make the 1.0-4349 driver I get the following message:

Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license and it has unresolved symbols. Contact the module supplier for assistance, only they can help you.

I'm using the tarball distro of driver and I'm sure the X Server isn't running. What's the problem? What are those unresolved symbols? Thanks from now.

You'll probably get more of a response if you post this in the Linux forum.

Run the installer, and then attach /var/log/nvidia-installer.log to your next post. It'll contain the symbols' names.

Most of the time, unresolved symbols come from a mismatch, either between kernel versions and kernel source versions, or between your running kernel and the way you have your kernel sources configured.

Are you sure that the configuration of the sources in /lib/modules/2.4.18-2cl/build is right? That it matches the way your current kernel is running?

RedHat, for one, puts a config file for the kernel in /boot. Check there; Conectiva might do the same thing. If it's there, cp it to /lib/modules/2.4.18-2cl/build/.config, then cd to that directory (the one ending in build) and run make clean oldconfig dep, and retry the drivers.
