Question OpenSuse 11.2 - unable to compile NVIDIA driver

Hello

Updated to Opensuse 11.2, last part was the installation of the legacy NVIDIA driver for a Quadrop 2 Pro.


Hardware/Software:
NVIDIA Quadrop2 Pro

VERSION: Linux 2.6.31.12-0.1-default i686
KDE: 4.3.5 (KDE 4.3.5) "release 0"

Driver: NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7184-pkg1.run

******************************
I followed the steps I used before for 10.2:


install (using Yast):

gcc
make
kernel-source
kernel syms
kernel-desktop-devel

Searched for update with the updater tablet: none found

Prepared the source files: (as root)

cd /usr/src/linux
make cloneconfig
make prepare


No error reported.

so I tried to compile the driver:

init 3

sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7184-pkg1.run -q


At the end of the compilations it reports that there was an error: so here's the complete LOG:

The driver that I'm trying to install is the same I used with 10.2.


Any sugestions ?


Thank you

test -e include/linux/autoconf.h -a -e include/config/auto.conf || ( \ echo; \
echo " ERROR: Kernel configuration is invalid."; \
echo " include/linux/autoconf.h or include/config/auto.conf are missing."; \
echo " Run 'make oldconfig && make prepare' on kernel src to fix it."; \

Have you done that? Don't know if it helps because I'm still at 11.0 with my legacy machine

Yes I did:

cd /usr/src/linux
make cloneconfig
make prepare

I also did tried with 'make oldconfig'. Those commands did not returned any error. If I tried to compile the driver without running those 3 commands then the error returned is that the source files are not compiled.

That's why I'm not sure what's wrong or what's missing.

[ ... ]
There is that cat zeroing out that file modules.order and some module postprocessing done that does not happen here. Maybe it has to do with that very old driver you are trying to install, maybe it is 11.2 specific. I am sorry but I can not reproduce it here.
