mdk le 2005 nvidia driver installation error


Hi linukers!

During my distro installation i chose vesa generic driver (the only one working fine).
I'm trying to install nvidia driver now - watching my CRT screen at 60 Hz is really tiring.
Here's what i do:
1. CTRL + ALT + F1
2. su (i don't have password set up not to make everything more difficult)
3. i go to the folder containing my downloaded 'NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7676-pkg1.run' file -
destination is /bin/bart.
4. sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7676-pkg1.run
5. I accept the license
6.No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you like the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel from NVIDIA ftp site ( f t p : / / d o w n l o a d . n v i d i a . c o m)? - I confirm.
7.Building kernel module - it gets all the way to 100 % (no problems here)
8.
Code:
ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'. This is most likely because the kernel module was built using the wrong kernel source files. Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you have the 'kernel-source' rpm installed. If you know the the correct kernel source files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the 'kernel-source-path' commandline option.
- i confirm
9.
Code:
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux driver download page at w w w . n v i d i a . c o m.
- i confirm
10. Nvidia installer ends work here.

Thanks for your time solving this

Well, in your step "8," the install program told you the problem and how to fix it. Just install the correct kernel-devel RPM package.

[retract]A simpler way to install the drivers to to load the driver RPM from the livna repository.[/retract]

Opps -- Just noticed that you are in the Mandivia forum -- I was replying to a Fedora question. Sorry, I was confused.

Honestly, I don't know how to do that...
I'm working in KDE 3.3.

In Menu->System->Configuration->Packages->Software Installation I typed 'kernel' in the search bar and what I found is:
kernel-2.6.11.12mdk-1-1mdk
kernel-i586-up-1GB-2.6.11.12mdk-1-1mdk
kernel-i586-up-1GB-2.6.11.6mdk-1-1mdk
kernel-i686-up-4GB-2.6.11.12mdk-1-1mdk
kernel-i686-up-4GB-2.6.11.6mdk-1-1mdk
kernel-smp-2.6.11.12mdk-1-1mdk
kernel-smp-2.6.11.6mdk-1-1mdk
kernel-source-2.6-2.6.11-12mdk
kernel-source-stripped-2.6-2.6.11-12mdk
kernel-xbox-2.6.11.12mdk-1-1mdk
kernel-xbox-2.6.11.6mdk-1-1mdk

is it one of theese I should install ?

P.S.
If I use cat /proc/version command in terminal, the outcome is:
Code:
Linux version 2.6.11-6.mdk (gb@n2.mandrakesoft.com) (gcc version 3.4.3 (Mandrakelinux 10.2  3.4.3-3mdk)) #1 True Mar 22 16.04.32 CET 2005

Sorry. I don't use Mandriva.

I suspect that you need to install the "stripped" one.

If that list you displayed is what's available, it looks like you're running a 2.6.11.6 kernel, but that the most recent kernel is 2.6.11.12. Perhaps you should first upgrade to the newer kernel.

But, as I said, I'm just guessing. Try looking in the Mandriva web site for help with upgrading and compiling kernel modules. (Note: To compile a module, you don't need the full kernel sources, only the "headers" that describe the entry points. That's why I guessed that the "stripped" source was what you needed. But that's just a guess.)

I installed the' stripped' one and nothing changed - i get the same errors.
But maybe my nvidia-installer log will be of some help (it's quite long :/ )

All you need to do is install the kernel-source package. Goto easyurpmi (see my sig) and setup access to the repositories and then use the Install Software program you opened before to install the package named 'kernel-source-2.6'. Now try it again.

Ok, I admit: linux is eally hard for me:
I have NO IDEA how to operate http://easyurpmi.zarb.org - which options should I select?
I tried to find any description - nothing

Could You please guide me and tell me step by step how to perform what You suggested

Select the version of Mandriva/mandrake that you are using, then select mirror sites for main, contrib, updates and plf. Enter the commands that will be printed as root. Once thats done, do
Code:
#urpmi --auto-select --auto
#urpmi kernel kernel-source

reddazz, thank You very much for taking a look into my problem
I did all what You said but still nothing changed...
At least I know something new about urpmi.

I've been thinking:
maybe instead of resolving new problems that come out when I try to install this cursed driver, it would be better to make pre-install check of all (like in a space-shuttle before lunching it). Then when we'll be sure if everything is ready, we'll try to install the driver. I mean: "before you install this, check if you have this set up like... and that like..." and then to start installing.

Remove the stripped kernel source package,
Code:
#rpm -e kernel-source-stripped-2.6-2.6.11-12mdk
After that try installing the nvidia driver.

I removed this package and still nothing changed (the same error messages).
I really appreciate Your help - if You'll have time and will to still try to resolve this, I'd be glad.
Now I'm going to sleep (01:17 a.m. here - my eyes are closing...) bye-bye

Try this How-To. http://www.linuxloader.com/modules.p...howpage&pid=17 It will get you through. The Nvidia module isn't too hard to get going once you see haow to install it.

At the end of your long log output was
Code:
NVRM: Can't find an IRQ for your NVIDIA card!
NVRM: Please check your BIOS settings.
NVRM: [Plug & Play OS] should be set to NO
NVRM: [Assign IRQ to VGA] should be set to YES
nvidia: probe of 0000:01:00.0 failed with error -1
NVRM: The NVIDIA probe routine failed for 1 device(s).
NVRM: None of the NVIDIA graphics adapters were initialized!
Now, again, I just guessing, but, when the loader tells you it can't find the nVIDIA card, perhaps that's your problem.

Have you done as suggested and checked (and, if necessary, changed) your BIOS settings? Note particularly the comment that Assign IRQ to VGA should be turned on in your BIOS.

Typically you access the BIOS by pressing one of Del, F1, or Esc during your initial boot (before Linux loads). Also typically the BIOS displays a brief message telling you how to access the BIOS settings when you first turn on your computer (or when you reboot). That message is often never seen unless you reboot because it's displayed before your monitor is "warmed up" enough to display anything.
