Question Problems installing 5328 driver

Hi.

Probably a very simple configuration problem, but I can't get past it after two
hours and reading everything I can find.

I have the 5328 driver to install. This is my first whack at the process. I have
the linux 2.6.0 source tree in /usr/src/linux-2.6.0; /usr/src/linux is a symlink to
/usr/src/linux-2.6.0; /usr/include has the glibc-2.3.2 headers in it (because I
am using glibc-2.3.2); and /usr/include/linux is a symlink to /usr/src/linux.

When I use the installation tool, the progress bar get to the end, and I get
a final error "failed to install...". nvidia-installer.log contains:

option status:
license pre-accepted : false

What do I have set up incorrectly?

Ok, stupid admission of guilt. I shouldn't have had /usr/src/linux being a symlink
to /usr/src/linux-2.6.0. I put it back to what it was, which was a set of headers
from long ago (circa 2.4-something kernel source).

Using the Makefile to build from that, got much better results, but still not a good
build:

make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/local/packages/incoming/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5328-pkg1/usr/src/nv'

FATAL: Module nvidia not found.

make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/packages/incoming/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5328-pkg1/usr/src/nv'
make: *** [kernel_module_install] Error 2

At this point, I look in the usr/src/nv directory, and there is indeed a file nvidia.o
that was created. So I execute by hand the step that died:

ld -r -o nvidia.o nv-linux.o nv-kernel.o

and that completes with no issues. Examining the makefile, I see there is some
'rmmod-check' that appears to be what's dying. If I then do

make -i install

because I have no clue what is dying, I get a full completion of the make install,
except for this one error as shown above.

If I then do an insmod nvidia.o, I get:

insmod: error inserting 'nvidia.o': -1 Invalid module format

So now I'm truly at wit's end.

For ref - I have no problems doing other compilations of things (like the kernel,
and other modules for other purposes).

I'm suspecting that somehow there is something wrong with what I have in
/usr/src/linux (like, it's somehow out of sync with the rest of my glibc universe),
but if that were the case, I should be having problems with other things, and
I'm not.

For ref also - I don't use a particular distribution. My box is sorta slackwarish,
though most everything I build from scratch. I do, however, retain the basic
(and current, 9.1) slackware file system, kernel devices, and certain packages
from the current slackware release - including glibc 2.3.2 and gcc 3.2.3.

thx for any help - and sorry about the last post. My bad.

jbh

(Oh - also, don't know why the "Riva 128" is posted under my name; I didn't
set that. I have a GeForce4 MX 440 SE - based evga.com video card).

Default New observation on 5328 with linux 2.6.0

Alrighty then. It seems maybe I wasn't so screwed up after all. From what I can
now surmise:

a. Rifling through all that error stream from using the 2.6.0 headers, I found this
little pearl somewhere in the middle:

In file included from nv.c:14:
nv-linux.h:51:4: #error This driver does not support 2.6.x or newer kernels!

So from that I conclude:

b. There was nothing all that bad about using the 2.4-something headers, other
than the fact that the resulting module would be a 2.4-ish module, and a
2.6.0 kernel won't be happy with that - hence, the "bad format" type message.

So then I guess my last question will be - any idea when yet a new driver might
be released that would support 2.6.X?

thx,
jbh
