4191 driver won't start up
I am using a LFS (Linux from Scratch) distribution based an a plain 2.4.18 kernel.
I am using the NVidia drivers a long time now but now with the version 4191 i am somehow lost.
The principal setup is ok, since the module (nvidia) is loading correctly
extract from /var/log/sys.log
Feb 21 17:42:34 hugo kernel: 0: nvidia: loading NVIDIA Linux x86 nvidia.o Kernel Module 1.0-4191 Mon Dec 9 11:49:01 PST 2002
But as soon as try to start X, it complains that it failed to initailize the kernel module and in the log file are the following entries:
Feb 21 17:43:01 hugo kernel: 0: NVRM: client does not support versioning!!
Feb 21 17:43:01 hugo kernel: 0: NVRM: aborting to avoid catastrophe!
As soon as I switch back to the 3123 driver everything is ok again.
So what does this message want to tell me ?
what client does not support which versioning
any help would be gladly appreciated

I don't know what that message means either (don't you just love not being able to see the sources to debug these things for yourself? ), but I run LFS as well. I don't get that error with 4191, but I do get "relocation error: libGLcore.so: __divdi3(): symbol not found" whenever I load 4191's "glx" module. So I'm running 3123 as well, and it seems to work fine. This isn't much more than a "yeah, others are seeing issues with 4191 too" response.
Anyway, the only people that know the answer to your question work at nVidia (unless they put it in the README? Have you looked at that?). Hopefully they can provide some insight?
