Question has anybody else had problems going from 4496 back to 3123?

I'm trying to go back to the 3123 driver for GeForce4 after finding that the newer drivers are slow. But I can't compile the source rpm's anymore like I did before. Has anybody had this problem? (Output attached)

Default I guess it's not possible ....

so I reinstalled the system. Thanks for the support nvidia. I'll make sure to be more careful when updating drivers in the future.

you tried to compile with glibc includes and _not_ (as noted
in the readme) using _kernel_ includes, that cannot work.

a configured kernel-source tree (or at least the includes) is/(are)
needed for a successful compile.


cheers

Hi,
I compiled using rpmbuild --rebuild NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.src.rpm . In the output it is indicating that it is using the kernel includes:

-I/lib/modules/2.4.18- 14smp/build/include (about 10th line from the top)

where do you see that it is using the gcc includes?

here:

/usr/include/linux/tqueue.h

these are system includes.

the whole file you posted is full of these and you already
noticed, that it won't work, so....



and I think the space in
"-I/lib/modules/2.4.18- 14smp/build/include" is not really helpful.

cheers

ps: it's rather line 55 than 10

Default hmm ...

You seem very confident. That's nice.

I'm not too familiar with kernel development, but I assume when compiling the kernel, other libraries (such as the glibs) are used in addition to the files that come with the kernel. I'm wondering where the space in the -I/lib/modules/2.4.18- 14smp/build/include came from. I'm also not familiar with rpmbuild, so I don't know where these include paths are from (I assumed they where in the rpm source file).

The rebuild of the the package did work on a freshly installed system. I didn't pass any parameters to the rpmbuild command, so the question is, what changed that cause the error.

When I installed the system the gcc3.2 driver was installed. Because I'm using a bunch of libraries that where compiled with 2.96 and I compile most things with 2.96 I linked gcc to gcc296 (instead of gcc320 ) and cc was linked to gcc. Therefore the compiler was using gcc296 to compile and as a result the references didn't work. So, the problem wasn't with including gcc instead of kernel headers.

Anyways, it's nice to know, now that I don't need it anymore. But, to let nvidia off the hook, it wasn't the new drivers that screwed something up ... it was me :-). But it would still be nice if the new drivers where faster .... not slower.

Cheers
