While RH's athlon kernel is the same version number it still is a different kernel. For some drivers (including nvidia's) using a module on a different kernel then on which it was compiled gives unresolved symbols.

I've compiled the kernel module against my running kernel, but I experience the same problem. I'm using an Aladdin TNT2, with the lspci -v output I send as attachment. It has M1621/1533(North/South) ALi chipset. The problem is not related to any version mismatch, neither to a problems with files in /dev: it's a problem of the driver with the PC. If you search in this forum rm_init_adapter rminitadapter (space separated, so it is an "OR"), you will get four threads(at this moment) with people having this problem. My distribution is a RH 7.3 with a custom compiled 2.4.19 kernel.

Ok I know it is not really an answer to your question but I have essentially the same setup ('cept I have the XP1700+) and I am running 2.4.18-3 and have no problems.... do you really need the upgraded kernel?

After three months I solved my NV0: RmInitAdapter failed problem. It was not the RH7.3 kernel. It was not the NVdriver module.
It was the BIOS. I have an A7N266-VM motherboard which includes an nVidia 220D GeForce MX Integrated GPU. The BIOS setup includes a VGA Shared Memory Size parameter which was set to 8MB. Setting it to 16 or 32MB solves the RmInitAdapter failure. I don't know if this is helpful to people with other motherboards.

I also have an integrated board and I also have set it with 8 mega of memory! I'll test as soon as possible this. Thanks a lot for your help!! I hope it will be useful! About the upgraded kernel, I'm going to test this(using the stock RH one), too.

Glad to be of service blaisorblade. After setting the VGA shared memory size to greater than 8MB I have got X up under both RedHat 7.3 and 8.0 `out of the box' as it were. Installed both in text mode and then used NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-3123.tar.gz and NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.tar.gz with 'make install' to get an NVdriver module that WORKED.
