Default 7167 driver is not finding kernel source

maybe wrong thread for posting, so I make new thread for it:
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...0&postcount=89


While 6629 does find kernel sources (which are as usual on /usr/src/linux/ )
7167 doesent. I also tried with --kernel-source-path /usr/src/linux/ to no sucess.

cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.6.8.1-24mdk

ll /usr/src/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 Feb 27 18:49 linux -> linux-2.6.8.1-24mdk/
drwxr-xr-x 21 root root 4096 Mär 6 16:32 linux-2.6.8.1-24mdk/

So source does match kernel exactly. It must be a driverprob as older nvidia packages are still working to install.

Attached is nvidia-installer.log
maybe of interest for analysis

@mfred: it did find the kernel source and built the module correctly, but failed to load it; please preload the AGPGART frontend module with `modprobe agpgart` before running the .run installer (see http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-7167.html and http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...80&postcount=1).

Default Re: 7167 driver is not finding kernel source

Im getting the same error w/ both driver versions 7167 and 6299 patched and unpatched. ive tried using --kernel-source-include and both loading and unloading agpgart w/ modprobe but any combination it still errors out.

I am running Debian sarge w/ the supplied precompiled 2.6.8.2-k7 kernel on a duron 1300 and xfree86 4.3. ive also tried the 2.6.8.2-i686.

any help is appreciated.

thanks

I found a couple of agp related kernel modules that were loaded other than agpgart. I unloaded them and the installer completed fine.
