Default Suse8, Linux 2.4.19 Problems

Hallo,
I installed under SuSE 8.0 and Kernel 2.4.19 the NVIDIA_kernel.rpm and
NVIDIA_GLX.rpm for SuSE 8.0 after running the script "NVchooser".
The installation was allready done with rpm -ivh ... and its sucsessfully done
, because every components for GLX and the kernels are on the positions that are described in the readme instructions from nvidia.
After editing the XF86Config file (e g Load "glx" , Driver "nvidia"...) I
wanne "startx" and I got the following error message in the FXconfig.log:

...
(EE) NVIDIA (0): Failed to initialize the NVdriver kernel module!
(EE) NVIDIA (0) ***Aborting****
....
And indeed,
in /lib/modules/2.4.19/video/ there is no NVdriver but in the other
directories /lib/modules/2.4.18.../video/NVdriver. It seems that the "rpm -ivh "
doesn't support Linux 2.4.19, or ? What can I do?

Merci

Alex

Grab the source rpm or tarball.

Hey guys, I found this looking for help.

The procedure differs slightly from the straight install, apparently this is what you are supposed to use in case you have a conflict. And I know, it uses 7.3 as an example.

Anyone wanna try and post the conclusions? I don't dare touching my machine, I really don't want to screw it up so I have to reformat.

Hm, well looking at that doc, all it looks like that's happenin, is the downloaded kernel sources (rpm I imagine) is installed in /usr/src/linux, with some config that should match what you are currently running, then make dep creates all dependencies, and would allow you to compile the NVdriver from source.

I'm not a suse user, so I can't say for sure, but I don't see what could be done there that would replace your kernel or have any affect on your system at all.

Just go for it. :P
