compiling nvidia 10.10


Hi folks, still strugling with this issue. I have a Nvidia beeing one for the geforce 4 mx420 nv17

Ater following

http://ubuntuguide.net/how-to-instal...verick-meerkat

and

http://ubuntuguide.net/install-lates...n-ubuntu-linux

Neather worked, and it defaulted to a blocky res.

I downloaded from nvidia the correct latest version 96.
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-96.43.18-pkg1.run

This compiled the module, but said it couldnt match it to the kernal, wrong version or something see log file.

How do I get arround this, I have the latest -23 headers and source

README...

There is a guide from Nvidia.

http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree8...DME/index.html

Checking what's required, do you have "gcc" and "make" installed, and do the versions of the kernel headers and the kernel version correspond?

With X stopped, you must execute the .run command while in the same directory as the driver file. That is, if you have downloaded the file to "/home" use the "cd" command to move to "/home" before executing. Note that the command starts with "sh" before Nvidia....run. See the README.

The versions of the kernel headers and the kernel version must correspond.
As I think it was friday, maybe yday, ubuntu updated itself. noticed I had kernal sources installed and updated them too.

So things should be ok. your right you know headers are 22 kernal is 23 cheers friend

I have this in my src dir
Code:
johnh@tux:/usr/src$ ls
acerhk.tar.bz2                   linux-headers-2.6.35-23-generic-pae
linux                            linux-source-2.6.35
linux-headers-2.6.35-23          vhba-module.tar.bz2
linux-headers-2.6.35-23-generic  virtualbox-ose-3.2.8
johnh@tux:/usr/src$
And still says its trying to compile it against the wrong kernal!
