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: 18.104.22.168-42.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: 22.214.171.124-45.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
126.96.36.199-32.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
