Default installation problem with 1.0-4363 with latest Redhat 9.0 kernel.

Yo!


I have installation problem with 1.0-4363 with latest Redhat 9.0 kernel.

I downloaded kernel-2.4.20-18.9.i686.rpm, but 1.0-4363 could not compile itself to suit for this new kernel as usually.

It complains about "kernel headers" and asks connection to nvidia site. But I do not have internet at home.

Where to download those kernel headers? I have not found anything so far.

I believe you have the same problem as me, but 'm not sure we are going to get any help.

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...threadid=13868

I am going to try with a virgin 2.4.21 kernel, but will miss the redhat kernel... That or buy another matrox.

baah. Not happy with Nvidia right now.

Yep, when you compile things its either a really successfull story or a total disaster.

Its life.

I had the same problem but finally got it work. I have a multi boot system with win 98, win 2k and redhat 9.

At the boot menu I get 3 choices redhat 2.4.20-8, redhat 2.4.20-18.9 and dos.

I was able to install booting up with redhat 2.4.20-8 and not able to install using redhat 2.4.20-18.9

I never used linux before until yesterday so I am guessing those could be 2 differnt kernel versions or one
is a rollback. Either way I hope this helps a bit.

FYI
I had to add the kernel path to the install command
sh NVIDIA-LINUX-x86-1.0-4363.run --kernel-include-path /usr/include

Install the kernel source rpm and it should compile.

In my case I have the source rpm installed.

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/sho...&threadid=13868

still no dice.

I got it to compile and install on a virgin 2.4.21 kernel and twinview works, so I guess I'm ok. I would like to be able to use a stock redhat kernel though.

I edited my last post has the version numbers were wrong.

And yes I can assure you the kernel was quite compiled in both instances. But only one worked. But since I had the version numbers wrong the newer one seems to work not the older one.

Yo!

Please help newbie...

I do not understand anything of your instructions, but I try to guess what they mean. :-)

Do I really need to recompile the whole kernel? How it could help in this matter, I dont understand. :-) What options I should use then?

Kernel headers...how to install new kernel headers? I guessed that it means that I nead to install this package with:

$ rpm -Uvh kernel-2.4.20-18.9.src.rpm

Then I logoff and :

$ sh NVIDIA-LINUX-x86-1.0-4363.run --kernel-include-path /usr/include



And it starts to compile, but it fails. logfile is attached, open with wordpad or office.

I was an idiot. There is nothing wrong with Nvidia.

I just had installed wrong file and though, that the headers were there.

When I installed the right file, the driver installed really smoothly and compiled itself like a dream.

The right files in Redhat 9.0 are (with Pentium 4):

kernel-2.4.20-18.9.i686.rpm

kernel-source-2.4.20-18.9.i386.rpm

kernel-doc-2.4.20-18.9.i386.rpm

And that's it. When you upgrade do like this:

rpm -ivh kernel-2.4.20-18.9.i686.rpm

rpm -ivh kernel-source-2.4.20-18.9.i386.rpm

rpm -ivh kernel-doc-2.4.20-18.9.i386.rpm

Why -ivh...it will make you kernel dualboot, so if it fails or is buggy, you can remove them with earlier kernel. No need to reinstall whole system.

After those just install nvidia as usual...
