Now I am using Mandrake 10.1, with a SMP kernel
(Im on a dual-processor pc, so mdk automatically gives me this smp kernel).
During installation of the nVidia drivers it gives me an error, telling me there is no precompiled driver, and it will need my kernel source to create a new module.
nVidia suggests it cannot use a module nvidia.no, something to do with me having the wrong soure
Code: Select all
-> Kernel module compilation complete.
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 correct kernel source
files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the
'--kernel-source-path' commandline option.
-> Kernel module load error: insmod: error inserting './usr/src/nv/nvidia.ko':
-1 Invalid module format
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 [url]www.nvidia.com.[/url]
Anyone have any ideas how to help me please?
Thanks in advance
