Gentoo Nvidia error (with a twist!)
Alright, this is your basic unresolved symbols deal when you try to modprobe nvidia

amy linux # modprobe nvidia
/lib/modules/2.4.20-gentoo-r8/video/nvidia.o: unresolved symbol preempt_schedule
Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license
and it has unresolved symbols. Contact the module supplier for
assistance, only they can help you.

/lib/modules/2.4.20-gentoo-r8/video/nvidia.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.20-gentoo-r8/video/nvidia.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.20-gentoo-r8/video/nvidia.o: insmod nvidia failed

buuuuut i'm getting unresolved symbols as i emerge nvidia-kernel
like so

.....--- !empty dir /lib
--- !empty dir /etc
>>> original instance of package unmerged safely.
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.20-gentoo-r8/kernel/drivers/block/loop.o
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.20-gentoo-r8/kernel/drivers/char/cyclades.o
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.20-gentoo-r8/kernel/drivers/char/epca.o
/usr/src/linux is pointing to my actual kernel

got /dev/agpgart (AGP Support)
and Direct Rendering Manager (XFree86 DRI support)
set as built in.on the kernel, am I missing anything?

if your using nvidia driver you do not want agpgart at all, it comes with it's own forced on install by default.

dri is done differently, you just need to use ldd to see that your using the correct libs for libGL and libGLcore

they will be in /usr/lib

correct the kernel config and be sure to run `make dep clean` before building the kernel

u need to load those modules!!
it looks like the nvida kernel is dependent on those modules! rebuild the kernel with those modules in question compile as modules that should fix it!!

if you have more questions please visit

im running Gentoo too!! go to the forums!!
