Hello.. I've downloaded the cd images for debian sarge and I was able to find in the pool sections of the debian the 2.6.8-1-k7_2.6.8-2_i386 kernel image package. I've downloaded the little buger and installed it. Next thing I did was getting my hands to the 2.6.8 source. There were several packages there named kernel-source_2.6.8_2.6.8-5_all.deb which I took and installed. Symlinks to the new kernel source, everything ok one thing to do is installing the NVIDIA kernel module. 1.0-6111.
Heheheee... doesn't work. Spits out a funny message:
ERROR: 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.
Allright.. check the gcc version.. same as the kernel-image, okaay anything else? NO.
(I'll try to recompile the kernel to see if this works oh well... wish me luck.)
