Help.Getting a error with Nvidia's drivers.


I have use the search function of these forums and to me it seems that the best way to install Nvidia drivers is to download the tar.gz files. So thats what I did. BUT, when I unzip them and into that directory and run "make," the following is what I get:

[root@localhost NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2960]# make
ld -r -o NVdriver Module-linux Module-nvkernel
size NVdriver
text data bss dec hex filename
824024 52788 52396 929208 e2db8 NVdriver
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.18-3/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver
make: *** [package-install] Error 1


How do I fix this?

Is the kernel source you compile NVDriver for in/or linked to /usr/src/linux? Then has that kernel source tree been tru the "make config" and "make dep" routine? Any errors in other modules? Then has your kernel have modversions (compile option) enabled?

I have two directories in my /usr/src:

linux-2.4 -in itallics so its a shortcut.

linux-2.4.18-3 -seems like the original source directory.

Yes, I have done both of those. No errors in other modules.

It must have. I was able to make a bzImage on it once. How can I check to make sure?

grep /usr/src/linux/.config -e "VERSION" should return something like "MOD_VERSIONS=y"

I get the following:

[root@localhost root]# grep /usr/src/linux-2.4/.config -e VERSION
CONFIG_MODVERSIONS=y
