When I did try to rebuild GLX and kernel rpms from SRPM directory, both errored:
rpmbuild: relocation error: rpmbuild: undefined symbol: rpmcliRcfile

i'm not sure has this anything to do that all but my src dir contains 3 directories: linux-2.4.18, linux-2.4.18-11 and redhat...kernel headers I used for staroffice installation I know are in linux-2.4.18...

ahhhhhhhhhhhh [/b]
Well, check where points
/usr/src/linux
and /usr/src/linux-2.4

they have to point to your running kernel.

that helps you, I supose

about rpmbuild... I never found that error...I don't know how solucionate.

couldn't resist, find a rpm and just checked
1) rpm -qa | grep kernel-source
nothing prints in shell

2) if I install a file:
..root]# rpm -i kernel-source-2.4.18-7.80.i386.rpm
nothing prints in shell, it just goes to another line without complain:
...root]#
-Uvh or --force don't change anything...
if I rpm -e kernel-source-2.4.18-7.80
shell prints me that it is not installed
rpm -qa | grep kernel-source
nothing prints on screen...just #
I don't understand why the kernel source file doesn't install...
m:-(

Better install sources from your CD's before installing others.

rpm -qa | grep kernel-source
[me
/home/uti# rpm -qa | grep kernel-source
kernel-source-2.4.18-11
]
If you want to remove it, you have to do:
rpm -e kernel-source
NOT rpm -e kernel-source-2.4.7....


if no prints nothing, install it from 2nd CD.

rpm -i kernel-source*
and check for dependencies... perhaps need to install something more.


Ahh, if kernel-source is installed , rpm -i can NOT install
rpm -U can NOT install if is the same package

if all is ok, rpm -i does say nothing


Check /usr/src directory
/usr/src/linux need to point to /usr/src/linux-2.4
and /usr/src/linux-2.4 to your current source /usr/src/linux-2.4.etc.etc

Default problem rebuilding

When i try to rebuild, rpm simply freezes in Installing NVIDIA-xxxx.src.rpm. What is the problem?

problem is when rpmbuild --rebuild?
or just installing rpm?

You need to be root(superuser) to do all

you need space in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS and /var/lib directories, in /tmp too

Be more detailed. I am a RedHat user, not engineer

Do this:
1: copy Nvidiaxxxx.src.rpm to /usr/src/redhat/SRPMS
2: from that directory do rpmbuild --rebuild NVidiaxxxx.src.rpm (one file each time better )
3: go to /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386
4: ls -al ( if there is any file, rebuild has gone fine )
5: install files , both at the same time ( rpm -i NV*.rpm)
6: if all is OK, edit your /etc/X11/XF86Config manually

I have found that my files are corrupted. I downloaded them again, but problem persist. Can somebody give me a link to an alternative location (not the oficila ftp mirrosr, they dont work)
Thanks for your answer.

I have download from Nvidia oficial FTP.
If you use Linux, I recommend you download with "wget"...

wget -c ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86_40/1.0-3123/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-3123.src.rpm

wget -c ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86_40/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.src.rpm

-c Option is for continuing downloading(resume)

Default more problems, now with smp kernel

After succesfully downloading and compiling, i got this when try to install the kernel rpm (was my first step, havent tried yet to compile/install GLX )

depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.18-11smp/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver
/lib/modules/2.4.18-11smp/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver: kernel-module version mismatch
/lib/modules/2.4.18-11smp/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver was compiled for kernel version 2.4.18-11custom
while this kernel is version 2.4.18-11smp.
/lib/modules/2.4.18-11smp/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.18-11smp/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver failed
/lib/modules/2.4.18-11smp/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver: insmod NVdriver failed

NVdriver installed successfully

What should I do to compile for smp kernels?

What should I do to compile for smp kernels?
This is easy (Nvidia for Monoprocessor and kernel multiprocessor)

When you compile your kernel, kernel version is in file
/usr/src/linux-2.4/Makefile
In redhat, in null , 2.4.18-11custom

You need to change it to 11smp , and save

Then, you need to configure your kernel, to adequate to smp.
Default is Uniprocessor.

You need to do (in /usr/src/linux-2.4 directory ) make menuconfig
and configure your options. You need to able support for SMP (multiprocessor )

Save your configuration

and do: "make dep clean"

I think, this is sufficient to RE-compile Nvidia drivers, not need to compile kernel, and avoid the above problems.

I don't have SMP system, but I've hear that there are some problems with nvidia and SMP.


Good Luck
