Question RedHat 9 buildmeister not found

I have a project i am working on at my job where i need a linux machine with GeForce graphics card and a digital I/O card.

About a month ago i got this system running using RedHat 8.0. I tried using newer versions of the NVIDIA graphics drivers. These newer versions had conflicts with interrupts coming from the digital I/O card, and as a result the computer would lock up. I then tried installing an older version NVIDIA driver, 3123, and this solved my problem.


Now I have to make a very similar system with all the same hardware, only this time using RedHat 9.0. First I tried installing the latest drivers (4363). There still seems to be a conflict with the digital I/O card. So now i am trying to instal the 3123 drivers, but when i try the rpmbuild --rebuild ...etc.... i get an error of several lines like:

... buildmeister does not exist - using root

I had this same problem on the first machine when i did not have the kernel compiler installed. But I have it installed on this system, and I still get the same error.

What do I do?

Thanks for any help.

That buildmeister "error" isn't actually an error, just a warning.

The real problem is that no drivers before 4349 will ever work with RedHat 9, unless you want to search through here for the various Phoebe beta threads (the same or a similar approach, patching the driver and turning off TLS system-wide, should work still), and follow them.

With RH9, it's 4363 or nothing (4349 had some bugs in it related to SMP+DVI, and something else I don't remember anymore -- though perhaps it'll work for you anyway).
