Default Nvidia driver 1.0-8178 with kernel 2.6.15

Hey people.

Iīve done a kernel update yesterday. to kernel 2.6.15-jad2-default
kernel sources are installed in the right version!
Running the nvidia installer telling me that he is not able to build the kernel module reports the following lines.

I followed your instruction to patch the nvidia-driver -8178 successfully.

Please help me to use my second screen by using the Kernel linux-2.6.15-jad2

Thanks a lot,

Building modules, stage 2.
make -rR -f /usr/src/linux-2.6.15-jad2/scripts/Makefile.modpost
scripts/mod/modpost -m -a -i /usr/src/linux-2.6.15-jad2-obj/i386/default/M
odule.symvers -s /dev/null /tmp/selfgz11242/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8178-pkg1/u
sr/src/nv/nvidia.o
/bin/sh: scripts/mod/modpost: No such file or directory
make[4]: *** [__modpost] Error 127
make[3]: *** [modules] Error 2
make[2]: *** [modules] Error 2
NVIDIA: left KBUILD.
nvidia.ko failed to build!


@Renntux: judging from the above log file excerpt, your kernel source tree has not been prepared to allow external kernel modules to be built against it; did you e.g. `make mrproper` after building your kernel?

Hi Zander,
thank you very much for your hint. Iīll try to "make mrproper", maybe thatīs the solution.

Thanks

@Renntux: you misunderstood me, you mustn't clean the kernel source tree with `make mrproper`, I was merely asking if you had done this, since it would've explained the problem. If the kernel source tree has been cleaned, you'll need to use e.g `make prepare-all` (I'm not sure off-hand if that command is still valid on Linux 2.6.15) before you can build external kernel modules.
