SuSE 8.2: "Failed to allocate config DMA context"
I tried to install the NVidia graphics driver for my GeForce2 MX 400 on a fresh SuSE 8.2 install. The installation went fine, but X refuses to start with the new nvidia driver. This is the relevant (I think) part of XFree86.0.log:
(--) PCI:*(1:0:0) nVidia Corporation NV11 [GeForce2 MX/MX 400] rev 178, Mem @ 0xee000000/24, 0xf0000000/27, BIOS @ 0xefff0000/16

Fatal server error:

The driver and the kernel were both compiled using the same version of gcc (3.3 20030226 (prerelease)).
I would appreciate it if someone could point me into the right direction.

[Solved] SuSE 8.2: "Failed to allocate config DMA context"
I found a solution to this problem in the following thread:
In short, I had to do the following before running the nvidia driver installation program:
cp /boot/vmlinuz.config /usr/src/linux/.config
cp /boot/vmlinuz.version.h /usr/src/linux/include/linux
cp /boot/vmlinuz.autoconf.h /usr/src/linux/include/linux
make cloneconfig dep
I didn't think this was necessary, since I already had the kernel sources installed, but this worked for me.
