Default nvidia.ko module and 2.6.11 kernel problem

hi,
i search answer for my question, but i'm confused a bit. i have amd64 3000 cpu, and leadtek px6200 TC. support for geforce 6200 came with 7167 and i dowloaded it. when i try to setup driver, first i get a warning that :

Quote:
Your Linux kernel has problems in its implementation of the change_page_attr kernel interface. The NVIDIA kernel module will attempt to work around these problems, but system stability may be affected. It is recommended that you update to a 2.6.11 or newer kernel.
then at the end of the setup, like the others who met this problem, get error about 'nvidia.ko' module. i use kernel 2.6.8-10-amd64-k8. is the problem just about my kernel version, will upgrading my kernel to 2.6.11 solve this? or doing something else maybe successful?

It is recommended that you update your kernel to the latest stable Linux 2.6.11 kernel (e.g. Linux 2.6.11.5), but the message you're referring to is a warning, only; please refer to the README for more information on the change_page_attr() problem. Please attach /var/log/nvidia-installer.log if you're seeing an actualy installation error.

Is this the complete log file? Did you add the precompiled kernel interface for this kernel yourself? Does the installation complete successfully if you pass the -n option to the .run installer?

yes, this is the complete log file. at my last tries, i added precompiled kernel interface for my kernel with --add-this-kernel parameter. and i have a new run file which has a custom word at last of the file name. i didn't use -n option. now i will try it.

i tried to setup driver with original .run file passing -n option a few minutes ago. but again i met 'nvidia.ko' module cannot load load problem.
as being in the log file, there are two lines at the end of the log file.

-> Kernel module load error: insmod: error inserting './usr/src/nv/nvidia.ko':
-1 Invalid module format

what does 'Invalid module format' sentence point? maybe it is about this.

Please check the output of `dmesg` after the installation attempt for additional information on the problem; `nvidia-installer` normally logs this information, hence my question if the log file is incomplete.
