Default 8174 install problems - fresh Mandriva 2006 x86-64

I installed a fresh copy of Mandriva 2006 Free the other night, installed the kernel source RPM for 2.6.12-12mdk, downloaded the 8174 driver, and then ran "sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8174-pkg2.run" from the directory I downloaded the driver to (as root).

It fails doing it that way - as well as extracting the files and trying from the directory, fails if I do --kernel-source-path=/usr/src/linux/, etc.

I'm happy to try whatever and then post log files if need be. Attached is the install log file that I get with the standard "sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8174-pkg2.run".

Thanks in advance for any help.

In your log I see:
####
WARNING: Symbol version dump /usr/src/linux-2.6.12-12mdk/Module.symvers is missing; modules will have no dependencies and modversions.
####

Mandriva has more than one kernel-source RPM package. Did you install kernel-source or kernel-source-stripped ? Also, have you touched the kernel source since installing it?

I've successfully installed 1.0-8174 in Mandriva 2006, so something is not right on your system.

Thanks,
Lonni

I installed the full source tree package (not the stripped version). It's a fresh install too, so I haven't gone in and manually tweaked the kernel at this point (I was hoping to just get the nvidia driver up and have a little America's Army fun before tweaking the system).

I've got several systems running Mandriva 2006 (this is the only one I'm trying the 8174's on for now), but this is the only AMD64 system of the bunch.

Edit: I edited the title as I realized I had put x86 and not x86-64.

I should also note that the 7676 driver package gives me similar errors (I'd have to do a diff of the instal logs to make sure it's the same error).

I'm at work now, so I can't do a ton on the machine. I can run some things tonight if that would be helpful...

Can you post the output from the following commands:
cat /proc/version
ls -l /lib/modules/`uname -r`

Thanks,

Everything looks fine, and I'm not sure what else to suggest, as I can't reproduce this with Mandriva-2006 (x86_64) here.

Would it be possible for me to get a shell on your system (ssh) to poke around?

Thanks,
Lonni

I can probably do that. I'm on a plane tomorrow (it's an XPC, so it's going with me). Once I get set up I'll get you a shell...

Let me ask you this too -

The Mandriva 2006 version that you've installed this on - which version is that? I'm running the download edition (Mandriva 2006 Free). Maybe it's something particular to the version of Mandriva...

I'm using the official 'Mandriva-Linux-Powerpack-2006' DVD.

Please email linux-bugs@nvidia.com with the access information & a reference to the URL of this thread.

I reinstalled the system using the Mandriva 2006 Powerpack X86-64 DVD and the 8174 driver installs fine. There must be something with the Mandriva 2006 Free X86-64 DVD that is causing the installation of the 8174 drivers not to function properly.
