Thumbs down Slack 10.1 Kernel 2.6.10 Nvidia 1.0-7174 wont build ...



Ok I just spent like an entire 2 days search these forums, and many other linux help sites to try and figure this out. When I run the NVIDIA Installer for driver v1.0 7174 I get the all so familiar:

ERROR: If you are using a Linux 2.4 kernel, please make sure
you either have configured kernel sources matching your
kernel or the correct set of kernel headers installed
on your system.

If you are using a Linux 2.6 kernel, please make sure
you have configured kernel sources matching your kernel
installed on your system. If you specified a separate
output directory using either the "KBUILD_OUTPUT" or
the "O" KBUILD parameter, make sure to specify this
directory with the SYSOUT environment variable or with
the appropriate nvidia-installer command line option.
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file
'/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions
on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
driver download page at www.nvidia.com.


Before anyone says anything at all ... I do have the source extracted and configured for 2.6.10, but because my glibc was compiled under kernel 2.4.29 I did not upgrade my kernel-headers to 2.6.10. So I have tried to use the --kernel-name and --kernel-source-path switches and end up with a compiler failure error - Something about, "Cannot load nvidia.ko because it was compiled using the wrong kernel source" -- Even when I tell it where the correct sources are.

This driver DOES compile successfully under my 2.4.29 stock kernel - but will not load when I startx - Something about, "No Screens with Support for Setting of 16, 24, or 32 bit can be found". Not sure what that means, since this is a GeForceFX 5200 AGP 8x -- there's no way that it wont support the above settings.

This is really starting to bug me .. because it seems as if NVIDIA simply does not care to actually test these drivers before they release them and even worst are not checking in on these forums much to find out what is going on so they can offer a solution.

And it also seems that nobody else has gotten this version to work correctly with Kernel 2.6.xx and if they have they haven't cared enough to share the solution with the rest of us.

Do I actually have to install the 2.6.10 headers and then recompile glibc under this new kernel in order for this to work? I sure hope not, because everywhere I look, they say that recompiling glibc is like Playing with Fire!!!

Sorry for the length .. I just wanted to be thorough. Maybe now we can get a straight answers from NVIDIA about how to work-around this issue.

Thanks-in-Advance

PS. Here is my nvidia-installer.log from my last attempt at installing it under 2.6.10:

I guess there isn't a solution yet ... ?
Man, this sux ... my graphics are all fizzy, jerky, and sometimes just plain broke.

I really need a *WORKING* driver solution for Kernel 2.6.xx --- puhleeeeeez!@!

I had the driver working fine on the 2.6.11 kernel I compiled myself, I can't remember having any problems with 2.6.10 either but again I did tend to make my own kernels. Can't help anymore I'm afraid cos I'm not using Slack atm

Exclamation Re: Slack 10.1 Kernel 2.6.10 Nvidia 1.0-7174 wont build ...

See thats the other thing ... I too have compiled my own kernel only to end up with the same problem.
I just don't get it, I followed the instructions to a "T" and still NVIDIA's installer will not compile the module.

But even going back to Kernel 2.4.29 trying each 6111, 6629, 7167, or 7174 drivers ... the installer completes and even compiles the module (of course its a nvidia.o on 2.4.xx and not nvidia.ko as is on 2.6.xx) -- but X won't start saying "Cannot Load NVIDIA, No Compatible Screen Found" --- I get the same when I force 16-bit, 24-bit, or 32-bit.

Again, I have to say -- this is getting rediculous that we spend all this money for a highend graphics card, yet we seem to get lowend support all the way around.

Reminds me of that CareerBuilder.com commercial where that guy is surrounded by a bunch of monkeys!!!

Angry Re: Slack 10.1 Kernel 2.6.10 Nvidia 1.0-7174 wont build ...

Hi, I got the same problem. With kernel 2.6.11.7 it seems to compile right but when I try to start the X my screen just gets black... . So, i got to use the kernel 2.6.7-generic that comes with Slackware 10.0. It works but only with this driver: http://sh.nu/download/nvidia/linux-2...-4496-pkg0.run

I make my own compiled kernel version 2.10 and 2.11.7 serveral times, but any of the new drivers seems to work.

Default Re: Slack 10.1 Kernel 2.6.10 Nvidia 1.0-7174 wont build ...

Sounds like your xorg.conf might have settings that th nvidia modules doesn't like. What's in your xorg.conf and /var/log/Xorg.0.log? The log file should tell you what's wrong. Also you should trying modprobe nvidia manually so the /dev entries get enough time to load.

I'm using slack with 2.6.11.4 and the latest 7174 module and it works fine.

Having the right kernel headers would help though. Why does glibc and kernel-headers matter?

Unhappy Re: Slack 10.1 Kernel 2.6.10 Nvidia 1.0-7174 wont build ...

Ok .. so ... something just didn't seem right. So on a hunch ... I compared my /usr/src/linux-2.6.10/include/linux (asm-generic and asm-i386) folders with my /usr/include/linux (asm-generic and asm-i386 folders. Each folder where my source is located (/usr/src/linux-2.6.10/include) was missing the version.h file.

So I symlinked the version.h from the /usr/include/linux and /usr/include/asm-i386 to their respective location within my source tree.

I got me a whole different set of errors now ....

Because if you looked in the TESTING folder on the CD or any of the Slack mirrors .. under packages/linux-2.6.10 you would find a file titled: kernel-headers.WARNING

Which reads:

This package of 2.6.10 based /usr/include/linux and /usr/include/asm headers
is being provided by request for some people who need it in order to compile
ASDL modem drivers for 2.6.10. As a general rule, installing kernel headers
that are newer than the kernel glibc was compiled with *may* cause problems,
so unless you need these for a particular reason it's best to stick with the
2.4.29 kernel-headers package for now.

Good luck!

-P.


I think I am having enough problems with this without screwing up my whole system ... ok so I upgraded the headers anyway and have yet to have a problem -- Just wanted you to know why I was reluctant to do this from the get-go.

As you can see from my last post, I have a whole new set of errors in my log now.

Why dont you just compile your own kernel (2.6.11.7 or 2.6.12-rc2) the proper_kernel 2.6.10 works fine with the nvidia driver. Sounds like a slackware issue.

Could you elaborate a bit more .. Because as I have said, I did try to compile my kernel manually.
As it stands right now ... 2.6.10 is the proper_kernel from the Slackware Testing folder, and 7174 WILL NOT BUILD .. I don't know how you can blame Slackware when nothing else is failing.

Needless to say, I did get 1.0-4496 to build under 2.6.10 ... but when I try to startx I get:

Default Re: Slack 10.1 Kernel 2.6.10 Nvidia 1.0-7174 wont build ...

I just dont get it ............ Now I get the 1.0-7174 driver and kernel module to build, but X still will not start. So I deleted my xorg.conf and re-ran xorgconfig, making sure to put in my manufacturer specs for hor/ver sync and max resolution.

The error on the screen says:

"/lib/modules/2.6.10/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.ko is not the correct format"

But my Xorg.0.log says something completely different:

Default Re: Slack 10.1 Kernel 2.6.10 Nvidia 1.0-7174 wont build ...

"Section "Device"
Identifier "geforce2go"
Driver "nv"
#VideoRam 262144
# inser Clocks lines here if appropriate
EndSection"


Well the nvidia driver is not being used because you have "nv" instead of "nvidia" and remove "dri"

The kernel you have is the slackware one not the one from kernel.org compiled yourself. Just because glibc was compiled for 2.4.28 doesn't mean 2.6.XX willnot work as i've never had that probelm.

Go get 2.6.11 from kernel.org and compile it yourself, if you need any help iin that just ask me.
