kernal source


I am trying to install drivers for my Nvidia 6800 go ultra vid card. I downloaded the drivers, switched to init 3 and ran the "sh nvidia....run" command as instructed. I get an error about kerna source somethiing. I read the "how to" on nvidia drivers located here at LQ. he mentioned this also
"..also, if you're running any kernels released after January 26th 2004, make sure you have the kernel source downloaded and installed correctly". What does this mean, and where do i get this? I am running "Mandrake 10.1 Offical DVD" that i got like a month ago or so. So i think the kernal is something like 2.6.8? Something like that.

Thanks for any help

Hello!

You need to have the kernel sources installed in order to install the nvidia drivers.
Use
Code:
# uname -r
to find out exact whoch kernel you are using. Now you need to install the sources for this kernel either via urpmi or the rpmdrake.

Code:
#urpmi kernel-sources-your_kernel_version
should do the trick for you. I'm not sure that the package is called kernel-sources, but is should at least be something similar to that (I haven't used Mandrake in a while). Then you shoule be able to install the nvidia-driver as well.

Ok that didn't work. I am still getting errors. I am getting really fustrated. I have read alot of post and websites about kernel source. I tried to follow all them, after comparing notes between the differnet posts/sites. It still didn't work. And i think i might have messed up something. This feels too hard. but, being a Marine, i refuse to give up. This is what happened.

I did uname -r and recieved the following output: "2.6.8.1-12mdk"
I then typed urpmi kernel-source-2.6 and it did what it did.
I then went to init 3, went to the directory and typed "sh Nvidia....run" to install.
It gave me errors about not having the kernel source or some such.
I then did some more research and went to this place talking aobut preparing you mandrake kernel source it had me do this:

$ su -
# urpmi gcc glibc-devel
# urpmi kernel-source-2.6 (mdk10.1 and later)
# urpmi kernel-source (mdk10.0 and earlier)
# urpmi kernel-headers (additional package for mdk9.0 and earlier)
# cd /usr/src/linux
# make mrproper
# cp /boot/config-`uname -r` .config
# vi Makefile (set the EXTRAVERSION to what you want (see below))

For 2.4 kernels:
# make oldconfig
# make dep
# make include/linux/compile.h

For 2.6 kernels:
# make oldconfig
# make include/linux/version.h
# make include/asm
# make scripts

I typed all that and when i got to the vi Makefile step it said something about extraversion (wtf is that?). It said i could delete the "custom" from my EXTRAVERSION variable. So i did.
Then went to 2.6 kernel step and typed make oldconfig. HOLLY CRAP. what the heck was that???? all this stuff came up and was asking y/n questions. I had no idea. So i just pushed "enter" until i got to the end.
I followed the rest of the instructions. Still didn't get the drivers to work. nvidia told me that it:
"Didn't have a pre-compiled kernel interface" It then tried to check on the Nvidia FTP site to download something. it dl'ed something but still returned an error about compiling a kernal and not having certain support files.

Could someone break this down to me Barney-style. I am fumbling with this stuff. I really have no idea what the heck i'm doing. Am i going to have to do this for every driver i want to install? Could someone list for me excatly what i need to do? If you need some info, i'll be happy to provide. for starters,
i am using mandrake 10.1 dvd.

Hi,

i had the same Problem, while ago. A link between kernel sources to the modules directory was give me a solution. With the actual nvidia-drivers 76.67 they come with a precompiled driver for my RedHat system. And the Problem is gone for now.

I actually don't know the specific link-name which helped me of that time. So it may give You the solution with downgrading to " kernel 2.6.8.1-10 mdk " for which a precompiled Driver seems to be included ( according to google ) .

If You can't live with a downgraded kernel, please tell us the content of the /var/log/nvidia-installer.log file. There will be more details about the error.

You don't use the correct kernel sources.

Look at this. There are two ways described how You can download the sources: http://www.linuxforums.org/tutorials...ial-30960.html

well, that was an excellent link. Helped alot. I actually got the Nvidia logo, but my hardware manager still says "Video Card" and "unknown device" in the description. On top of it all, i think i broke x-windows. I can't log into init 5. When i boot, i'm in command prompt, init 3 i think because that is where i was before the "breaking". I didn't see the "nv" line in my XF86Config file, but i saw something else under #Linux Video Driver, so i changed that to "nvidia" and added "nvidia" to the list in Modprobe.preload. I'm not sure i understood this part:

$ rpm -qa | grep kernel-*
kernel-2.6.8.1.12mdk-1-1mdk
kernel-2.4.27.0.pre2.1mdk-1-1mdk
kernel-source-2.6-2.6.8.1-12mdk


And like i said before, i couldn't find the "nv" entry in XF86config. When i installd teh driver, it went through, talked about not having a pre-compilied kernel and would i like Nvidia to download one, which it did and installed. Yada yada yada, i recieved a "succesful Install" type message. Changed the afore mentioned files and rebooted. Thats when i got the logo but no identifier in ControlCenter/Hardware. i reinstalled the driver at that point, it said that the driver had been successfully installed but if i wanted to continue, it would uninstall the previous driver and install the new one. I did that, and again it said successful. It was here i think that x-windows took a dook. When i reboot, it goes straight to command line. I log in as root, and type "init 5" and it does nothing but bring me back to the prompt. I really hope i don't have to reinstall "Again". I've gotten really good at installing the OS. I will post my *Config file later today, i'm at work now and don't have access to my Linux. but if this information can help you help me, please feel free to share the love. Tell me what i did wrong. And the "$rpm -qa..." info above, could someone explain this to me. Should i type "$ rpm -qa | grep Kernel-" and follow that hyphen with each of the kernel-2.X lines. Typing it twice, once for each kernel-2.x...? I read the long "read me" that came w/ the Nvidia driver but it didn't tell me anything new that wasn't mentioned in previous posts or that link Road Runner gave me.

Thanks guys...You rock

There will needed some editing of the /etc/X11/xorg.conf. So, posting Your configfile is a good idea.


"$ rpm -qa | grep kernel-*
The described rpm command Query All installed Packages and gives You this complete list on the screen. but the pipe-symbol ( | ) gives this list, before showing it, to the following command. Which is " grep kernel-* " , and this command filters from the list the entries with the given word, so it show only the installed kernel-packages of Your System. If You compiled a kernel from sources ( kernel.org ) this kernel will not showed in such list because it is not installed with rpm or similar package manager.

Btw: " rpm -qa | grep kernel- " is the same command in this situation. In other situations " rpm -qa | grep -i kernel- " is a good choice, where grep filters case insensitive.

Oh i get it. OK.

$ rpm -qa | grep kernel-*
kernel-2.6.8.1.12mdk-1-1mdk
kernel-2.4.27.0.pre2.1mdk-1-1mdk
kernel-source-2.6-2.6.8.1-12mdk


The command (line 1) outputs the following 3 lines, and the one in bold is the one i'm looking for. so if i have that last line, them i code 4 (meaning OK).

I had company last night, so didn't get to post my Config file. But i'll do it again tonight. This is fun, if fustrating. Again, thanks for the assist.

Oorah! BBL

OK. I reinstalled Linux (Again! getting really good at this). With a fresh install, i updated the urpmi's from easyurpmi. After which. I followed the link that road runner gave me. All went well until i hit the last part. About editing my XF86Config. I didn't see the "nv" in order to switch it to Nvidia. Here is the file:

OK. just for fun here is my "modprobe.preload" file:

Uh,

i now realize that You use nvidia-driver 7664, please download now 7667 and try again.

If the problem persist, make sure that the x config file which You edited is the one which is used by XFree. The Nvidia README.txt tell You in Chapter I.3. how to find the used place.

Normally, if the driver is installed correctly, a nvidia-logo will showed at X-Window-Startup.

ok, i think it is installed. I got the nvidia splash screen and did the test for 3d acceleration:

[peter@localhost X11]$ glxinfo | grep direct

BUT, this is my detected hardware from control center for my video. It says video card as type:

Identification
Vendor: ?(null)
Description: ?
Media class: ?DISPLAY_VGA
Connection
Bus: ?PCI
Bus PCI #: ?1
PCI device #: ?0
PCI function #: ?0
Vendor ID: ?4318
Device ID: ?201
Sub vendor ID: ?5464
Sub device ID: ?2304
Misc
Module: ?unknown


also, i can't change resolution beyond 1024x768 without the screen getting all weird, by weird i mean LARGE. where i have to scroll around the desktop to get a look at giantic icons. Isn't the video card supposed to say "Nvidia 6800 Go Ultra" or some such?

also, where is that cool looking Nvidia control center thing. The one with TUX next to the nvidia logo? How do i get there?

Getting close, i can smell it.

I don't know about mandrake's system, but if i change resolution to 1600x1200 in RedHat it changes the apropriate settings in the 24bit section in the xorg.config to:

SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "1600x1200" "1400x1050" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

Maybe Your mandrake forgot to change this section because it can't detect the VGA. After changes the X-Window-Server must be restarted to take effect.

open an xterm and call " nvidia-settings " .
