Nvidia Drivers problem


The first time i installed CL8, i downloaded the NVIDIA_kernel.tar.gz and NVIDIA_GLX.tar.gz, untarred them, make install, editetd my XFConfig-4 file and everything went fine.

This time i did exactly the same thing when I try to "make install' i get this nasty message:

[root@inferna local]# cd NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123/
[root@inferna NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123]# make install
echo \#define NV_COMPILER \"`cc -v 2>&1 | tail -1`\" > nv_compiler.h

more info

the path /lib/modules/2.4.18-2cl/ is correct
I'm trying to use Nv drivers 3123 (latest version available on nvidia webpage) format tar.gz
my video card it's a gf2 ti leadtek
before reinstalling conectiva, i was using nvdrivers 2880 and those gave me absolutely NO problem. Back then i downloaded the drivers in tar.gz. format and did a make install, just the way i'm trying to do now, and everything went fine.

i got it to work !!!!
thanks to conectiva and it's well documented distro

the problem appears to be that the latest Nvdriver doesn't seem to correctly identify the path to the kernel headers

While trying to get the drivers to work i came across the file /src/linux-2.4/README.modules

opened it, read it and foun that all i needed to do was to tell make install that the path was /usr/src/linux/include instead of /usr/include/linux

so i did a:

make install SYSINCLUDE=/usr/src/linux/include

and the drivers compiled and was loaded perfectly !!

thanks conectiva
