Default Debian A7N8X deluxe make install


I have tried to make and make install the nforce driver of NVIDIA in my system. I have a A7NX8 deluxe motherboard.

- Make finishes without any error messages, so that would be OK
- make install has errors:

depmod: cannot read ELF header from /lib/modules/2.4.20/modules.alias
depmod: /lib/modules/2.4.20/modules.ccwmap is not an ELF file
depmod: cannot read ELF header from /lib/modules/2.4.20/modules.symbols
make[1]: *** [install] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving driectory '/home/nforce/nvnet'
make: *** [nvnet_install] Error 2

I am getting exactly the same error with kernel 2.4.23. I also tried 2.6.0 but that doesn't work at all...so I am trying with the 2.4.23 which would do fine...except for this ELF problem.

Anyone has an idea what I should do to get this fixed?

Thank you very much!

Here is the output of make and make install. Compare this with your output and post it as well so we may solve this issue. Also try to do the install from the stock kernel that came with your distro. This may lead you to the problem you are encountring.

which version of the driver are you trying to install and in what format?
