Mandrake 9.1 + New NVidia Driver
Hello everybody, I have a fresh installation of Mandrake 9.1 running and I have tried installing the newest nvidia drivers multiple times (on other installations). I have been using a shell script called "nv_check.sh" to check the configuration/installation of the driver is correct. Anyway, it spits out this error message and I have no idea what to do, any help would be very appreciated!
Here is the entire print out from the shell script:
[root@localhost Drivers]# sh nv*
Welcome to the NVidia Driver Installation Checker.
This shell script is meant to help you debug your installation
of the beta NVidia Linux drivers. It is not 100% foolproof.
In particular, you will definitely want to make sure you have
the correct options in your XF86Config to make X work properly.
This script cannot debug your X setup. That being said, it
should prove useful if are having problems with the drivers and
want to check the validity of your driver install.
At no time will this script EVER make changes to your system.
It is simply a diagnostic tool - fixes of any kind will have to
come from you.
Press enter to continue...
OK, the first thing we need to do is make sure your XF86Config file
is set up correctly. In order to do this, I'm first going to try
and find where this file might be...
I'm going to be doing my checking using /etc/X11/XF86Config-4. If this is not
actually your X config, then quit this script with Ctrl-C, remove
or rename the file, then run this script again.
Press enter to continue
I'm going to check your XF86Config file for the following things:
1) Loading the GLcore and glx modules
2) Specifying the nvidia driver instead of nv
Checking for the Load glx statement...
It seems to be intact. Now lets see if you're loading the correct
Everything seems fine in your X config file. This is not 100%
guaranteed to be accurate, but lets continue anyway (press enter)...
The next step involves making sure you have the proper files in
the right places, and that the kernel module loaded correctly.
Press enter to begin the test.
First lets make sure you don't have the old modules still present
You don't appear to have any conflicting older drivers. Now lets check
if the new driver files are in place...
libGLcore.so.1 => /usr/lib/libGLcore.so.1 (0x40077000)
All the files seem to exist. Now I'm going to see if your kernel
module is loaded correctly...
the NVdriver kernel module does not seem to be loaded. The 3D
drivers will not work without it...please compile it for your
kernel, set it up to insert the module on boot, then run
this script again.
Remember if you are having trouble compiling the module,
try adding -D_LOOSE_KERNEL_NAMES to the Makefile.
As you can see, the problem occurs directly above this text. Any ideas as to what I need to do to correct this?
Thanks for your time!
