Question NVIDIA driver (4496) patched for kernel 2.6.x compatibility won't compile!


After patching the driver 4496 (patch from www.minion.de)
and trying to compile i got this:

bash-2.05b# make install

bash-2.05b#

#For what i could gather from the internet it is looking for the header files found #/linux-2.6.4/include/asm-i386
#Tried doing symbolic links but the only one that seemed to work was : ln -s #/home/rod/linux-2.6.4/include/asm-i386/socket.h /usr/include/bits/socket.h
#which was found but not sockios.h
#the rest... i got no idea

the culprits:

kernel 2.6.4 (homemade)
nvidia driver 4496
2.6.x support patch from www.minion.de

hardware
Geforce 3 ti200

are you installing the nvidia drivers in that output (i couldnt tell)? you should try the 5536 drivers, they work with the 2.6 kernels without any addon hacks/patches.

yes i am just after patching the driver.I am currently using those same drivers (5536) @ the moment not very stable i must say, e.i machine crashing while playing ut2004 and very jerky and for what i have read in forums and around the internet is that 4496 is more stable and gives a better squeeze out of your video card that is why i want to switch back

i think i can agree about the reasons, although about the error, i think it could be a bug in the patch/driver/kernel, or maybe the patch wasnt made for that specific kernel version.

from scripts/fixdep.c:107:

I think these missing files are the issue...

Indeed but the thing is if i knew where this directories are : /usr/include/bits/local_lim.h:36:26: "linux/limits.h": No such file or directory
i could make simbolic links same with sockios.h : did a symbolic link from /../..include/bits/sockios.h to /home/rod/linux-2.6.4/inlcude/asm-i386/sockios.h
but nothing , also the part i don't understrand is:asm/sockios.h: No such file or directory, looked for this directory could not find it!
