Default Any idea what's going wrong with my nForce install on Ubuntu?

Here is the log:
Quote:
Using: nvidia-installer ncurses user interface
-> Found package NVIDIA network driver for Linux-x86
-> Found package NVIDIA audio driver for Linux-x86
-> Please select packages for installation:
Selections:
NVIDIA audio driver for Linux-x86 (1.0-7)

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 of the audio driver has failed. Please see the file
'/var/log/nvidia-nforce-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.
Any help would be great.
Thanks!

You need to install gcc, the gnu compiler collection. A default Ubuntu install typically lacks development tools.

Thanks,

Is there any compelling reason for you to need to install the nforce drivers?
Ubuntu ships with forcedeth for lan and alsa for the audio.

Perhaps you could help us all with a step-by-step on how to setup an nForce platform using ALSA, so far, it's nothing but a pain in the royal arse to find information. And the terminal is completely new to me as I'm an old windoze user. I would rather stop using all Microsoft software if I can help it.

Ubuntu should do all the work for you.
Any howwhy re-invent the wheel. The documentation does not get much better than this.

Well, for some reason, (this isn't the first time I've tried) Ubuntu Hoary didn't setup my nforce drivers and, I figure, breezy works off of old settings and therefore didn't update the nforce chipset with the intel i8x0 drivers that Knoppix Live CD used. So, that said, I have to start at the ground and build my hotel.

Thank you for the link, I'm checking it out right now.

I don't seem to be able to make out your mb nforce version, but if it's nforce 2 I for one would like to see your hotel if you've built one

first install gcc and other stuff needed for compiling:
Code:
sudo apt-get install build-essential
you also have to find out, what kernel version you are using:
Code:
uname -r
than use that info and install the appropriate kernel-headers:
Code:
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.12-10-386 (your kernel version)
you might also need the complete kernel source (but I'm not sure, whether this is really necessary)
Code:
sudo apt-get install linux-source-2.6.12 (your version without the last numbers)
XX
that should do the trick.
