nvidia.ko can't load on Intel SE7525GP2 Mother board
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:05 EST
Description of problem:
I tried to install NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-7174-pkg2.run on kernel-2.6.11-
1.1287_FC4smp, Nvidia installer was failed.
It seemed that compiling "nvidia.ko" was successful, but loading module was
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install fc4 test2 with "Everything" and yum update
Nvidia VGA driver install ended with error.
and nvidia.ko modules was not loaded.
Installer messages were following.
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.
Following is dmesg
nvidia: module license 'NVIDIA' taints kernel.
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:03:00.0[A] -> GSI 16 (level, low) -> IRQ 169
NVRM: This IO region assigned to your NVIDIA device is invalid:
NVRM: BAR1 is 0M @ 0x00000000 (PCI:0003:00.0)
NVRM: The system BIOS may have misconfigured your graphics card.
nvidia: probe of 0000:03:00.0 failed with error -1
NVRM: The NVIDIA probe routine failed for 1 device(s).
NVRM: None of the NVIDIA graphics adapters were initialized!
It should be load nvidia.ko successfully.
MB: Intel SE7525GP2
CPU: Xeon 2.8G (EM64T) x2
Mem: 1GB x2
PCI-e x16: Nvidia GeForce 6200
PCI-e x4: Blank
PCI: AHA-2940U/UW (It has 2 SCSI channel on a board)
iTVC15 MPEG-2 Encoder
IEEE 1394: TI IEEE-1394b (64bit PCI)
SiI 3124 PCI-X Serial ATA RAID (PCI-X)
SE7525GP2's BIOS setting has only "Dual Display(On board VGA and PCI-E)"
and "Disable on board VGA" only.
I also tried Fedora core 3 x86_64 with kernel-2.6.11-1.14_FC3,
it was failed too.
This hardware configuration was worked fine on Windows XP 32bit.
I reported to firstname.lastname@example.org, Nvidia said that
the kernel does not know hot to handle 64 bit PCI I/O regions.
