Description Scott Sibert 2004-02-19 11:00:54 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
2.6.3-2.1.188 and .189: externally built modules (ie. nvidia drivers)
will not load into the kernel.

Previous that I had tried, 2.6.2-1.177 (UP kernel), was fine and
loaded the module fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot 2.6.3-2.1.188 or 2.6.3-2.1.189
2. run nvidia-installer
3. after error, exit nvidia-installer
4. insmod ./usr/src/nv/nvidia.ko

Actual Results:  nvidia: version magic '2.6.3-2.1.188 686 gcc-3.3'
should be '2.6.3-2.1.188 686 gcc-3.4'
insmod: error inserting './usr/src/nv/nvidia.ko': -1 Invalid module format

Expected Results:  module insertion with no problem

Additional info:

As I said earlier, 2.6.2-1.177 loaded the module fine; this is with
nVidia drivers version 5336.
Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2004-02-19 11:03:46 EST
probably a bug in the nvidia makefiles and if you read correctly
you're using the wrong gcc version.
