Default Redhat 8.0, no rpm, can't compile.

Hi, I just installed Redhat 8.0 and I want to enable 3d by installing the nvidia drivers. There is no rpm for the kernel so far. This is not a problem since it is easy to compile but for a reason I don't know, it doesn't work. I get something like that:

make: *** [nv.o] Error 1

This is with the tar.gz, I also tried with the .src.rpm and it also doesn't work. Had no problem with Mandrake 9.0.

Anyone installed the drivers on Redhat 8.0?

What are the ten or fifteen lines before "make: *** [nv.o] Error 1"?

OK, we can see there's been an error, but ... err ... we can't tell what it was.

If you want, you can make >log.txt 2>&1 and attach the resulting log.txt file to your next post, that way you'd be sure to catch the error (you'd catch all the output).

At a guess, I'd say you need to install kernel-source. But that's purely a guess, based on the number of times it fixes problems -- I would need to see the actual error that gcc is giving to be able to know for sure.

Default Same problem

I have the same problem... I think it might be because RH8 is based on gcc 3.2... I might be dead wrong however. Tried to attach a tarball, board didn't like it.

Mostly it's a bunch of errors like:
/usr/src/linux-2.4/include/linux/kernel.h:60: invalid suffix on integer constant
usr/src/linux-2.4/include/linux/module.h:187: parse error before numeric constant

Here is the log file of the compile, I hope it helps.

By the way, I don't think it is related to GCC 3.2 since Mandrake use it too and I had no problem.

Default It works!

Just installed the kernel development packages and I tried with both the tarball and the src.rpm and it works great. Thanks for the suggestion about the kernel sources and stuff like that.

Default Corrupt dev rpms maybe

I'm beginning to think my kernel rpms are bad. It wouldn't build the kernel on a fresh install but it would build a vanilla just fine, along with the driver.
