Default Re: Nvidia Drivers

DanST:

Your log file reveals that you are compiling against the wrong module version.

2.6.12-mdk and then a different 2.6.13-mdk.

I didn't pinpoint it exactly. But either you're running a 2.6.12 kernel with 2.6.13-mdk headers and sources. Or you are running a 2.6.13 kernel with 2.6.12 headers and source code.

You should compile and run your own custom kernel. Or if you're not comfortable doing that, make sure that you are running the kernel that matches your sources.

According to your log your headers are found in the /usr/src/linux directory.

If you're running Ubuntu (which is really just debian set up in a more user friendly way than normal) you can probably run the dselect program at a terminal to see which headers you have installed.

Type in the '/' character and enter <linux-headers> as a search to find which headers you have installed or to install the ones you wish to use.

Registered to leave this comment, and this seems like as good of place as any....

I'm really happy NVIDIA maintains Linux drivers for their cards. In fact, for the last 5-6 years, I have only purchased NVIDIA cards (3-4 actually) because they are better supported with the Linux operating system than the competition. So, thanks for all the support. This forum seems like people bringing up the problems, and I wanted to be the alternate voice of Linux gamers who do really appreciate all the work of NVIDIA and the supportive forum posts of helpful users. I hope NVIDIA continues their support for the kernel and increases support for graphic driver developers and game producers.

Good luck with all your Linux endeavors, NVIDIA. You are in a great position to offer leadership in driving hardware and graphical standards in the Linux community.

DanST:

Start up a terminal: i.e. xterm

Enter the following:
uname -a
This should give you the actual version of your kernel. I'm not familiar, however, with Mandriva. But it looks like from your log file you do have your source files installed. This would definitely have to be the case if you were able to run the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9629-pkg1.run file and succeed in compiling the nvidia.ko module.

But Linux is not like Windows. You do have to a little bit of research. But it sure is more dependable. You need to do some research, perhaps on a Mandriva forum (or just read the documentation), on how to install the correct headers for your running kernel.

It appears that you have the headers and source files installed for your distribution: they just don't happen to match your kernel. They have to match exactly. If you can't find a matching set of headers in your distribution that matches with your running kernel, then see if you can't find a matching kernel that coincides with your currently installed headers.

nvidia: version magic '2.6.12-13mdk 686 gcc-4.0' should be '2.6.12-12mdk 686 gcc-4.0'
nvidia: version magic '2.6.12-13mdk 686 gcc-4.0' should be '2.6.12-12mdk 686 gcc-4.0'
nvidia: version magic '2.6.12-13mdkcustom 686 gcc-4.0' should be '2.6.12-12mdk 686 gcc-4.0'


Judging from the nvidia-installer.log excerpt above, you're running 2.6.12-12mdk, but were building against the 2.6.12-13mdk and 2.6.12-13mdkcustom kernel development files. You need to install the development files for 2.6.12-12mdk.
