I haven't heard anything about how well it works. All I've heard about is how difficult it is to get it working in the first place. That's why that long thread appeared that I linked to.

Question Slightly OT question

On an unrelated note, volt, I have a heavily tweaked Red Hat 9 install with lots of custom package upgrading and XFce installed. I'm an experienced Linux user (5 years and counting) as well. Should I install Fedora Core 1, or is it too n00b-ish for someone like me?

I assume you did not upgrade your kernel - though you should to version 2.4.22-2149. YOU MUST HAVE kernel sources installed to do this.

Go into your terminal and type: rpm -qa |grep kernel-source
it should output 1 line with your kernel source version. If it does not, you need to install it.

Anyway, grab NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.tar.gz package.

Go into your terminal and do the following:

1. tar zxfv NVIDIA_nforce*
2. cd NVIDIA_nforce*
3. make
4. make install
5. modprobe nvnet

It should automatically insert it into your kernel. Reboot, let kudzu detect your NIC and configure it.

I'm no experienced linux user, but I always thought *any* linux distro stands much higher then Windows in terms of configuration level.

I first installed Mandrake around 5 years ago, but I haven't used Linux on daily basis. It was more for fun rather than productivity. I've used a few including Slackware. Recent one was RH9 but I hated it. I thought I would try Fedora - bingo. This is what I wanted for my desktop replacement

FC1 doesn't seem to include a lot of bloated software. It's maintained by the community, there are always updates available..I simply love it

And I'm sure a lot of people would say the same about Gentoo hehe.

Default thanks

thank you for your help but it doesn't solve the problem

the command line you give me doesn't work but using uname -r, I know now that my kernel is the following : 2.4.22-1.2113.nptf (what does nptf means?!?)

then I type exactly what you say and I have some error messages :
cc commande introuvable (sorry it's in french, it can be translated by command not found)

nvnet.o error 127

nvnet make error 2

mmm after having looked in the decompressed folder, I don't find the file nvnet.o

please can you help once again? sorry for disturbing you

thanks

We're here to help

Did you install kernel-source? Do you have all development tools/apps installed?

Question

Hi all. New to forums and quasi new to Linux. I recently installed Fedora Core 1 onto my PC and finally got everything working on the .2115 and .2149 kernel's. I am having difficutlies compiling the nForce drivers for the 2.6.1 kernel. The nvnet driver won't seem to compile due to something wrong in the irq.h file on line 70. I'll have to reboot the computer and get the actual output (dual booting). I've poured over the forums and google and haven't found anything that really helps.

Thanks ahead of time for any help. Text is after computer specs.
