Default [help!] how to configure the new kernel 2.4.21 about nforce2?

My os is redhat 9.
After I compiled the new kernel 2.4.21,
I wanna install the latest nforce2 driver.
But when I make it,
it always says "unsolved symbols...".
The nvnet.o can not be installed properly and can not be used.

So, who can tell me how to configure the kernel ,
in order to make the nforce2 driver work ?

thanks you very much !

Default

The 2.4.21 kernel only needs the nvnet module, not the audio or the ide driver to get the Nforce2 board working.

I unpacked the nforce tar file and changed directory to the nforce/nvnet subdirectory, do a make clean, make and then make install. Works everytime.

It may be a silly question but did you remember to do a "make clean" ? Seems to me that in one hurried afternoon, I forgot and did the install of nvnet from the last kernel and got the "unresolved symbols" issue.

If you didn't set the 2.4.21 kernel to support AMD74XX in the IDE, ATA ATAPI Block devices then the disk DMA doesn't work. This switch is shown in the 2.4.22 series as AMD and nVidia IDE support.

Default Sound

Should be the same. Of course you don't have to use nvsound, the kernel i810_audio module is identical (well, it was in 2.4.20) and works well.

I've used i810_audio for testing but I generally use the ALSA sound modules. http://www.alsa-project.org/index-ok.php3

If the Intel 810 audio is built in the kernel, go ahead and use that instead of nvsound. Then there's no need to rebuild nvsound every kernel change as i810 is already there ;-) (I'm lazy).

The only change needed (assuming the i810 audio is in the kernel) is to change the /etc/modules.conf file and replace nvsound with i810_audio. (My entry for that in the modules.conf file looks like: alias snd-card-0 i810_audio .)

Good luck
