Update issued alot of warnings - please interpret


I did a system update today on my Centos 6.5, 64 bit install on my pc. The setup was slow and issued many warnings The most common warnings are:

nvidia-uvm.ko needs unknown symbol nvUvmInterfaceRegisterUvmOps

and it is repeated several times (at least 10) during the update process. I tried installing

nvidia-uvm.ko

, but there is no such package. Should I heed this warning or assume (ass u me) that everything is okay? This is only a warning, but it occured so many times that I am really concerned about it.

Any help appreciated.

Respectfully,

jyunker

I don't know what the error means but I can advice you to use an rpm tool to search within packages.
Quote:
Nvidia-uvm.ko
seems to be a module file, most likely contained within another package.
When you find what provides it, you can pull the package in and run update again to check if the errors pop-out again.

yum provides

I ran the coomand yum provides and the output is as you see it.

Code:
[root@james Hyantes]# sudo yum provides Nvidia-uvm.ko
Loaded plugins: downloadonly, fastestmirror, priorities, refresh-packagekit, security
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
epel/metalink                                                                                                                                                                                                         |  16 kB     00:00

 * epel: mirror.oss.ou.edu
 * extras: mirror.sanctuaryhost.com
 * rpmforge: mirror.cpsc.ucalgary.ca
 * updates: mirrors.bluehost.com
Warning: 3.0.x versions of yum would erroneously match against filenames.
 You can use "*/Nvidia-uvm.ko" and/or "*bin/Nvidia-uvm.ko" to get that behaviour
According to this the package does not exist. At least I think that is what I think it says.

Any thoughts?

It's not saying the packaged doesn't exist, but suggesting you to correct the syntax of the query.
Try
