Unhappy RH8 + nforce1 = help!

I am trying to get the built in network card to work on my Abit NV7-133R which is an nforce1 board. The sound and whatnot seems to be doing fine with the drivers. I have the stock kernel and have not upgraded.

2.4.18-14

I tried installing the nvidia driver

NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248.rh80up_2.4.18_14.athlon.rpm

Now my kernel is the i686 build I think and not the athlon build, but should that matter?

in any event, the rpm does not work, so I used the SRPM, but that behaved exactly the same. Hmm, but I did build the kernel with the athlon config again, but I never installed the kernel since its supposed to be the same thats in there (686 and athlon are actually same right!?)

The error upon install is this

depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.18-14/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o


depmod -e produces this


depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.18-14/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o
depmod: __netdev_watchdog_up_R065272f1
depmod: alloc_skb_R37701013
depmod: __kfree_skb_R9f577077
depmod: skb_over_panic_R96dfe3a9
depmod: netif_rx_R61b6a4ab
depmod: eth_type_trans_R8099d0b4
depmod: softnet_data_R21a8786f

I have no idea where to go from here?

I have searched redhat and google and this site. Nothing. Actually next I will try to run the actual kernel I built, but the stock driver should have worked with the stock kernel...

Thumbs up

That fixed it!

For some reason, the default kernel does not match the kernel built from the sources.

Unbeeweebable.

In any event, the driver installs fine in the new kernel which is supposedly the same as the old kernel but obviously not because sizes are different everywhere and the NVIDIA drivers didnt like the downloaded redhat kernel.

Now that its working, im not touching it!
