Default install nforce driver for FC5

when I install nforce for FC5 ,I fail to do it ,

it says
Unable to load the kernel module 'nvnet.ko'. This is most likely
because the kernel module was built using the wrong kernel source files.
Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your
kernel and that they are properly configured; on Red Hat Linux systems,
for example, be sure you have the 'kernel-source' RPM installed. If you
know the correct kernel source files are installed, you may specify the
kernel source path with the '--kernel-source-path' command line option

I have disable SELinux before installing the driver.
I do not know what is wrong !
what can I do in order to fix those problems.

I don't use FC5, but check the fc5 sticky here.

the fc5 stock kernel doesn't allow to load non-gpl modules, so
the nforce driver should be affected too

or do it the way i do: never install cutting edge distros, let em mature
a little bit first. saves a lot of hassle

Default Re: install nforce driver for FC5

I have a similar problem.

However the difference is I have tried the new kernels (currently on 2.6.16-2070) with appropriate .src.rpm and kernel-devel installed. The nvnet ethernet driver installs without problems. But the nvidia audio driver fails to install giving the same error as above.

I imagine this must be losely related to the problems encountered with the nvidia gfx driver and fc5. But what the solution is I don't know.

I hope we can find some answers, and keep this thread alive as it always seems that the nforce drivers are eclipsed by the problems with the gfx driver.

Attached log for more info.

Also I am not running selinux so that should not be causing the problem. *should not*

Hmm it is strange that you are unable to install the nvnet driver using the 'new' kernels. However looking at your log the nvnet is being installed properly:

-> Installation of the NVIDIA network driver for Linux-x86 (version: 1.0-13) is
now complete. Please update your networking configuration as appropriate;
see the file /usr/share/doc/nforce/ReleaseNotes.html for details.

should just be a case of /sbin/modprobe nvnet, and adjusting you modules.conf.

install nforce audio driver in FC5
I found a way to install nforce audio driver in fc5 withou the "unable to load nvsound.ko"
problem

what you need is to apply the patch enclosed.
then you can install the driver without the problem above

1: download both the driver and the patch(nvsound.txt).
and go into the direction where driver and patch you store

2 ./NFORCE-Linux-x86-1.0-0310-pkg1.run --extract-only
mv nvsound.txt NFORCE-Linux-x86-1.0-0310
cd NFORCE-Linux-x86-1.0-0310
patch -p0<./nvsound.txt
3: nforce-installer
.........

Now i have install both the audio driver and nvnet driver in FC5,but
I can not stop the older driver being loaded while the system is start.
i have followed the instruction in RelealeNotes,
that is modify some item in /etc/modprobe.config

for audio driver
remove line
"alias sound-slot-0 i810_audio"

Add the following lines to the configuration file:

alias sound-slot-0 nvsound
alias snd-intel8x0 off
alias i810_audio off

install nvsound /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install nvsound ; sleep 1; /usr/bin/nvmix-reg -f /etc/nvmixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
remove nvsound { /usr/bin/nvmix-reg -f /etc/nvmixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove nvsound


Add the following lines to the /etc/rc.local

/usr/bin/nvmix-reg -f /etc/nvmixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1


for net driver

remove line in the configration file
alias eth0 forcedeth

Add the following lines to the configuration file

alias eth0 nvnet
alias forcedeth off


but after i reboot the system
i you "lsmod" to see if the driver have worked ,i found the forcedeth driver for net and the snd-intel8x0 driver for audio
are still runing .I can not stop them being loaded by modify the configuration file as above.
how can i stop the driver for audio and net FC5 offered.

I wish to have nvmixer audio settings automatically restored each time the nvsound driver loads by adding the lines(referred above) to the configuration file for 2.6 kernels

bu every time i shutdown the system it says fail to do this because can not find sound card

what is the matter with the audio driver ,how can i fix the problem I referr above.

Hey all,

I got the net driver working using the following command:

./nforce-installer -a -n -k 2.6.16.1-1 --kernel-source-path=/usr/src/linux-2.6.16/

Hope this will help you guys.

Default Re: install nforce driver for FC5

for the audio i found the one on Realteks site works just fine.
i have a NForce 410 and the same thing happened, wouldnt install, then i managed to get an install and both devices seem to be ok untill the network wouldt do anything and the sound wouldnt output anything.

so i used the realtek driver for audio and have disabled the onboard lan and used a PCI one. works fine now.

Default Re: install nforce driver for FC5

Thanks Wang !!

Just some things to share for the 2.6.17-1.2157 kernel:

For the 2.6.17-1.2157 FC5 kernel I had
to tweak the line number 2191 in the file nvsound/main/nvmain.c file after using the patch of Wang.

When I changed it into:
MODULE_PARM(vapu_enable);
and did the compilation, it works again!

Don't now why, but with the instructions of Wang, it works again perfect in FC5 (after using FC4 for a while)
