Default Nforce for recent Kernel

Hi,

I've read this :
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=73925

I downloaded nForce V 1.23 , I'm using SLED 10.1 (kernel 2.6.16.46-smp).
I think that the thing to improve is the explanation of what to do if my kernel is not a kernel proposed with packages.

For example, I have a kernel which is not supported for the nForce (whith a package). What am I supposed to do ? I readed the doc ( http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=73925 ) But this is FULLY UNUNDERSTANDABLE.

" create a new Makefile "
-> Where ??

" type the command etc..."
-> Even if I created a Makefile anywhere (/home/myself/Makefile 4 ex), I have this :
Code:
make: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.16.46-0.12'
Makefile:450: .config: Aucun fichier ou répertoire de ce type

  WARNING: Symbol version dump /usr/src/linux-2.6.16.46-0.12/Module.symvers
           is missing; modules will have no dependencies and modversions.

-->> More errors than cool stuffs.

Do I have to install first an old nForce driver ?
Do I have to copy manually files (forcedeth) ?

Maybe I'm seriously stupid but i can't see what to do in the official sticky thread, and I don't think I'm the only one. Consider that Linux is not only for geek and, please, give us some more explanation on what to do to use nForce driver on recent kernel.

Thank you very much,
Martyn.

Default Re: Nforce for recent Kernel

You don't need the nForce drivers on newer kernels because the drivers are already included in the main tree. Just upgrade the kernel to a more recent one and your problem should be solved.

Default Re: Nforce for recent Kernel

Ok; thank you, but I cannot use my eth0 card (Unknown device), nothing can detect it and it doesn't work.

How could I update my kernel without a web acces ...?
I tried opensuse 10.2 (with the driver nvlan in the Nforce package), it worked at the perfection, but when I updated my kernel, it stopped to work.

Si tried a distro with a recent Kernel (SLED 10 SP1), and it doesn't work...

Any help is welcome
