I am very close.As a matter of fact I am posting this post from my new kernel.However I still lose networking when I reboot.This is what I did.I am not sure if your
"Then make sure that their is
a link from /lib/modules/yourkernelverson/build to your source directory."
is confirmed by this [root@localhost root]# ls -l /usr/src/linux-2.4
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 24 May 9 12:08 /usr/src/linux-2.4 -> linux-2.4.22-1.2188.nptl
or should it be directed to kernel-source-2.4.22-1.2188.nptl
So i was unsure and left "as is".Then I went to my Nvidia untarred file.It would not let me "make clean" on the whole ball of wax at once.So I went into each sub-dir nvnet and nvaudio and did a "make clean" in each of those.Then went back out to the Nvidia folder and did a "make" and "make install".
Then modprobe nvnet
Now my networking is loaded but i got an error during modprobe and when I reboot I lose the network and have to do the above steps all over again.
The error was
[root@localhost Nvidia]# modprobe nvnet
Warning: loading /lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2188.nptl/kernel/drivers/net/nvnet.o will taint the kernel: non-GPL license - NVIDIA
for information about tainted modules
Module nvnet loaded, with warnings
I did go to the suggested site but I could not tell for sure what they wanted me to do there!
I feel like I am so close yet so far!!!
