Linux 2.6.25, Slack-current, and nvidia compile error
 
It just fails when I try to compile my video driver. Any ideas?

The error message I get is actually along the lines of "build fails."

It still works with my Linux 2.6.24.4 kernel, so I am running that for now.

Well, since it's a custom kernel (since 2.6.25 is not yet available from -current), it could be your kernel configuration. Did you remember to exclude nvidiafb and rivafb? Did you remember to enable SMP support? Are you using the latest nVidia drivers (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-169.12.pkg1.run)? Some previous versions had trouble compiling with newer kernel versions. (Sorry I can't be more helpful -- I haven't tried 2.6.25 yet)

Pretty much all previous versions have trouble compiling with new kernels. Nothing new. If that is indeed the problem, then you'll just have to wait for Nvidia to release an updated driver.

What I figured. I guess that 2.6.24.4 will have to be recent enough.

There is a newer 173.08 nvidia driver available which works with 2.6.25. It has some other issues tho read up on them at nvnews.net

You can find a patch for the nvidia driver installer on the Nvidia linux support forum (link can be found on the nvidia linux download page)
