Need help with nforce drivers


Hello,

Im running Mandrake 10. I have noticed that the drivers that the drivers for my sound and nic aren't working 100%. Basically when my eth0 starts it hangs for about 2 minutes. Also my sound has crackling coming out of the speakers ever now and then even when im not using any sounds (not my mic). I decided to install the nVidia drivers and this is the error message i get:

make -C nvnet
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/drivers/nforce/nvnet'

I didnt have much luck with the RPM either. I have the kernel source installed and I believe it's 2.6.3. I'm not entirely sure what the issue is.

Any help of this issue is appreciated.
Thanks

The Nforce audio and NIC drivers require a 2.4 series kernel. (I use the same drivers, actually.)

Go to www.nvidia.com.au and download a driver call NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run. I'm running Kernel-2.6.5 and I don't have any problems with nvidia drivers.

Once u have downloaded the above driver, u simply have to execute the file (ie $./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run). and it'll do the rest, v easy. Once the module is compiled, u just need to load the module and reconfigure the Xserver and select nvidia driver.

Good luck.

Sorry didn't read the whole thing :-) U might need to recompile the kernel and select the right sound card. If you do lspci -v and see what Multimedia audio controller is and select that from the kernel.

Just ignore the earlier post.

Good luck

Thats ok. So it all had to do with the 2.6 kernel!

Thanks for that. Cheers for that command "lspci" great little tool that one!
