Default 1.0-6111, patches for 2.6.9 don't work

Hi,

i downloaded and installed 2.6.9 and also the latest NVidia driver,
which failed to compile.

I tried several patches, among it also the simple patch that just
adds VMALLOC_RESERVE to nv.c.

Now the kernel module compiles but won't load into the kernel
when i do "make install"

I'm a bit stuck here, when i do "make module" and "make module-install" all is fine, but when starting X11, it says it
can't initialise the hardware.

Where can i get some more information?

Is there another patch necessary?

Can anybody reproduce the problem?


Thanks for hints,
Torsten.

Everyone can reproduce the problem. When posting to help forums or mailing lists it is customary to do a little searching, it helps you and others find and fix problems faster.

So... it won't work. Which patch exactly did you use? What hardware are you using and what distro? What does it do when it doesn't work.. and do you get any kernel messages in /var/log/messages?

Boot to runlevel 3 (text only, multiuser) and manually insert the module (modprobe nvidia), what messages do you see?

Add #define __VMALLOC_RESERVE (128 << 20) to nv.c. it worked for me.
