Build to wrong kernel (make install, etc.)
Hi all - I believe my kernel is messed up because I can not seem to build packages to the correct kernel.
I updated my kernel a couple days ago to: 184.108.40.206-42.fc6. All went for all I could see. I run em2880 for a USB hdtv prostick and I went to reinstall the package (per instructions at: http://mcentral.de/wiki/index.php/Em2880; as I normally do, but the "make" command tried to install to the following directory:
Notice that the end of the "kernel" version is 1-32.fc6 - NOT 2.42.fc6. I thought maybe something was going wrong with the em2880 drivers and firmware so I concentrated most of my time there.
However, I do not think his is the problem. I recently upgraded kernels again to: 220.127.116.11-45.fc6. This time my nvidia drivers did not install correctly (normally I have to reboot, remove the old files; reinstall the new files and reboot again for the nvidia drivers to work). During the first reboot, I saw an automatic message that the nvidia drivers were already being installed. Before I got to the welcome screen I received an error indicating that the "x server could not start" - or something along those lines. This is normal after a kernel upgrade . . . so I just remove the old nvidia drivers and insert new ones therafter; reboot and everything works fine like I said above.
This time the drivers did not install correctly and I cannot get the nvidia drivers to load. My guess is that the nvidia drivers are building against the
18.104.22.168-32.fc6 kernel and not the newest kernel. I also get the same error above when I try to install the em2880 drivers.
Does any one know how to change "make" to install to the correct kernel version?
Let me know if there is any other information I can provide. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks - BJ
Confirm that your kernel-devel and kernel-headers packages match your running kernel;
rpm -qa 'kernel*' | sort
If no then do something like: yum update kernel-devel kernel-headers
Yeah - I was all up-to-date. Not exactly sure what was going on . . . but I had a second installation of Fedora (F7) on a second hard drive. I just manually deleted the contents of the drive when I booted into FC6 and everything seemed to work fine. Weird.
