Another? installation problem on RH7.3
When installing the nVidia kernel 1.0-2960 on RH 7.3 (2.4.18-3)
according to the HOWTOs a list of undefined symbols is listed, and when the module is loaded I get:
"You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible
license and it has unresolved references. Contact the module
supplier for assistance. Only they can help you"
Are the problems related or is it two separate problems?
(Disclamer: I am not familiar with this forum so I do not
really know if this problem has been discribed elsewhere.
I have understood that there are problems if you have an
"upgraded" kernel (e.g. 2.4.18-5), but mine is the the plain

I assume you are install from the tarball. Make sure you have all the kernel source installed in the /usr/src directory.
Also, try to load the kernel module by running the following command.
modprobe -a NVdriver
Hope this helps!

I am having the same problem. Has anybody found a resolution?
Thanks in advance.
Also, I don't think "modprobe -NVdriver" will help, because this issue is referring to the NVIDIA kernel, which runs the nvnet and nvaudio, not NVdriver, which runs the video.

I get this message too.
The Nvidia driver is not GPL ( Gnu Public License ), and some modutils don't like this.
With an XFconfig well configured...
If Nvidia doesn't load into kernel automaticaly, is for this reasons...
1: /etc/modules.conf doesn't have a proper line
alias char-major-195 NVdriver
2: insmod doesn't like Nvidia driver why is NOT GPL
3: We have compiled a new kernel, and insmod don't find the proper driver
In Case 2: we have two options.
adding a /sbin/insmod -f NVdriver in "/etc/rc.d/rc.local" to force insmod to load the driver.
Perhaps there is more solutions, but
I always install from source.rpm ( I use Redhat, but I change the kernel sometimes )
And I have to recompile Nvidia_kernel and install, for every kernel update
