Description Jeff Lane 2001-01-16 05:59:49 UTC
I am posting this for a customer. 

SYSTEM CONFIG:
  Pii 300/Intel Atlanta Motherboard/256MB/Creative Labs TNT
  RH7 with all updates and rawhide kernel rpms (2.4.0-0.43.12)

  STEPS TO DUPLICATE SYMPTOM
  1) download .95 drivers
 
ftp1.detonator.nvidia.com/pub/drivers/english/XFree86_40/0.9-5/NVIDIA_kernel-0.9-5.tar.gz

  2) download patch to make driver work with 2.4:
  http://www.linuxgames.com/misc/patch-2.4.0-PR

  3)untar the source tarball:
  tar xvzf NVIDIA_kernel-0.9-5.tar.gz

  4)apply the patch:
  patch -p1 <~/patch-2.4.0-PR

  5)make the module:
  make

  ERROR REPORTED:
  modprobe NVdriver
  /lib/modules/2.4.0-0.43.12/video/NVdriver: unresolved symbol irq_stat
  /lib/modules/2.4.0-0.43.12/video/NVdriver: insmod
  /lib/modules/2.4.0-0.43.12/video/NVdriver failed
  /lib/modules/2.4.0-0.43.12/video/NVdriver: insmod NVdriver failed

  COMMENTS
  Any ideas? If I use virgin kernel sources from kernel.org, then this
patch
  works fine. This is something from rh kernel .rpms I'm not a C guy or I
  would probably be able to fix this quickly. Any help would be appreciated

Comment 1 Jeff Lane 2001-01-16 06:02:31 UTC
I posted this because the customer commented that this patch DOES work with the
stock kernel from kernel.org, and does NOT work with the rawhide kernel.

Comment 2 Sammy 2001-01-16 17:56:01 UTC
I found out that if you add -D__module__i686_up into the DEFINES line in
your Makefile everything compiles fine and I have been running it for two
days.....I have no idea why!

Comment 3 Sammy 2001-01-22 15:52:58 UTC
Also......NVIDIA just announced new drivers (0.96) for 2.4 and RH7 etc....
They compile and work fine.
