Description of problem:
The closed source NVIDIA video driver was possible to install with
2.6.8 kernels such as 2.6.8-1.624 but it will not install with 2.6.9-1.667
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot kernel version 2.6.9-1.667
2. Run NVIDIA installer
Actual Results: ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'.
This is most likely
because the kernel module was built using the wrong kernel
Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for
kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you have the
'kernel-source' rpm installed. If you know the correct kernel
files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path
'--kernel-source-path' commandline option.
-> Kernel module load error: insmod: error inserting
-1 Unknown symbol in module
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file
'/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find
on fixing installation problems in the README available on the
driver download page at www.nvidia.com.
Expected Results: The nvidia.ko kernel module should build and install.
