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):
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
As I said earlier, 2.6.2-1.177 loaded the module fine; this is with
nVidia drivers version 5336.
probably a bug in the nvidia makefiles and if you read correctly
you're using the wrong gcc version.
