Gentoo NVIDIA error
I have been working on the NVIDIA driver for a while now. I tried to follow the how to and done some searches and no luck.
After emergeing glx and kernel and I do the modprobe I get this boo boo message:
bash-2.05b# modprobe nvidia
/lib/modules/2.4.20-gentoo-r5/video/nvidia.o: unresolved symbol highmem_start_page
/lib/modules/2.4.20-gentoo-r5/video/nvidia.o: unresolved symbol kmap_prot
/lib/modules/2.4.20-gentoo-r5/video/nvidia.o: unresolved symbol kmap_pte
Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license
and it has unresolved symbols. Contact the module supplier for
assistance, only they can help you.
/lib/modules/2.4.20-gentoo-r5/video/nvidia.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.20-gentoo-r5/video/nvidia.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.20-gentoo-r5/video/nvidia.o: insmod nvidia failed
Anybody seen this before? What did I do wrong?
I did get the freakin modem to work though. :D :D
Any ideas? :Pengy: :Pengy:
:D :D :D :D
Rebuilding the driver for your new kernel should fix any unresolved symbols messages.
Ok? I did this install from the CD. NO internet stuff. Shouldn't it all be the same version? If not how do I rebuild the kernel? NVIDIA kernel I'm assuming? Me a bit :confused: . Something is wrong. I probably did it too. :rolleyes:
Get me started maybe?
Is that the emerge nividia-kernel thingy that needs to be updated?
Let me know. Kind of new to Gentoo. I like it though. It is really nice looking.
Thanks for the help.
:D :D :D :D
