Default modprobe nvidia.ko fails (debian, self-compiled kernel)

The driver installed ****Almost**** successfully for me. I mean that if I had a peaceful kernel named "2.6.3", it would be ok.

But for hardware needs I have patched my kernel, and thus have different kernel versions : when I compile my kernel I do

make-kpkg --append-to-version=blablabla kernel-image

so that when run my kernel and type "uname -r", the result is "2.6.3blablabla".

My concern is that when I install the nvidia driver (using option "-k 2.6.3blablabla"), it doesn't put the good version signature in the module, so that "modprobe nvidia" fails and dmesg output shows:

nvidia: version magic '2.6.3 PENTIUM4 gcc-3.3' should be '2.6.3.040224-usb2 PENTIUM4 gcc-3.3'

How could I compile this so that the versions match?

(It works if I override using "modprobe --force2 but that's a little bit brutal...)

Unhappy

it doesn't work...
I tried what you said, with or without the quotes, I tried 'export EXTRAVERSION=.....', I tried to use APPEND_TO_VERSION instead of EXTRAVERSION, but any of that didn't work. The module (nvidia.ko) still appears as from version 2.6.3 whereas my kernel is 2.6.3.040224-usb2.

If all else fails, you may want to take a look at http://home.comcast.net/~andrex/Debi...dia/index.html, which describes an installation procedure more agreeable with your make-kpkg magic.
