Default Problem compiling kernel module


after updating SuSE 10.1 alpha 3 to alpha 4 I can't compile the kernel module with NVidia installer. I suspected a problem with updating and installed a clean-room version of 10.1a4, same problem.

My system ist GForce 6800 GT on a Asus A7n Mainboard.

Version alpha4 brought a new glibc (2.3.6), the compiler (v4.1) was already there in alpha3. And there is - of course- the new kernel 2.6.15-rc5.

I know that alpha versions are not supported, but if someone could give me a hint where the cause of the error (view log) might be, maybe I could fix it...

Default Re: Problem compiling kernel module

Whow! That did the trick. Thank you very much.

And that after googling around for 2 days...
