Exclamation NFORCE x86-1.0-0301 and kernel 2.6.11.2 issues.

Hello all,

I'm trying to install nvnet driver for my 2.6.11 kernel and I seem to be having an issue. Below is my log:

suggestions on fixing installation problems in the README available on
the Linux driver download page at www.nvidia.com.


Now my source is in /src/linux-2.6.11.2

when I ran the config I did point it to that directory.

Am I missing something? Might it be wise to come up to the 2.6.11.6 kernel? (wouldn't think minor releases would make a huge impact)


On a side note, I usually just use the forcedeth driver inside 2.4 ( as I use slackware ). Yet I couldn't pin point the option that would make a forcedeth module for 2.6. So even that information would help.

Please try it again... and then attach "dmesg" output here, so we see what's going wrong

run menuconfig or xconfig (or whatever you use to configure your kernel)

and choose:
"Device Drivers"->"Networking Support"->"Ethernet (10 or 100Mbit)"->"Reverse Engineered nForce Ethernet Support"

chunkey,

Thanks for you input on this. Oddly enough I wanted to get higher console rez support for my 2.6 kernel so while I was at work I fired up make menuconfig and added that support for vga= parameters, finshed recompiled and booted. Now, as you suggested, I tried the nforce installer again and it seems to have worked with no issue.

I'm not quiet forsure what I did, but it worked...and I will accept it lol.


Thank you though for responding.
