Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 113945
Unable to compile Nvidia driver on x86_64
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:35 EST
Description of problem:
Downloaded Nvidia driver for AMD64. Tried to compile the kernel
module. Got error:
"You appear to be compiling the NVIDIA kernel module with a compiler
different from the one that was used to compile the running kernel..."
I can override this by setting an env var. When I do that, when
starting X-Windows with this driver, it immediately crashes with no
Nvidia installer complains, when forced, X crashes on startup.
Driver compiles successfully and works fine.
gcc -v reports 3.3.2 20031022 (Red Hat Linux 3.3.2-1)
Using XF86Config file that worked under Red Hat 9 and SuSE 9.0 for
AMD64 on the same machine (and driver compiled without complaints on
both those platforms)
