Default nvidia driver will not compile.

this is my situation: i am running fedora core 2 test 2. i have previously got the nvidia driver to work fine, by recompiling my own kernel, with the apropriate configs set, and then jsut doing a regular install of the driver. however, this time, on kernel 2.6.5, the compile of the driver fails. this is my error log as generated by the installer program:

Default Re: nvidia driver will not compile.

If you are going from kernel 2.4 to 2.6 you need the package module-init-tools (but I would think this is in Fedora). Did the kernel compile go OK, install and run fine? Try older nVidia drivers too.

Default Re: nvidia driver will not compile.

This looks like a KBUILD problem (introduced in 2.6.5?) that has recently been fixed (see LKML).

If you haven't found it yet, check the "Nvidia 5336 driver with Fedora Core 2" thread.
