Hi all, I'm trying to install Red Hat 7.3 on a Dell c840 laptop. I know
from installing on my previous c810 you must get drives for the nvidia
video card. I got them from nvidia's site.
I installed them with
rpm -i NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-2960.i386.rpm
rpm -i NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2960.rh73up.i386.rpm
and in XF86Config-4 changed nv to nvidia and commented out Load dri.
but I get errors. ONe says my OS is i686 but there is no 686 GLX file on
the Nvidia site.
Then it says
failed to load module GLcore (module does not exist, 0)
failed to initialize the NVdriver kernel module!
screens found, but none have a usable configuration
fatal server error:
no screens found
So I thought I'd at least try to use the i686 kernel, and downloaded it.
I wanted to remove the i386 kernel, but
rpm -e NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2960.rh73up.i386.rpm
got me "NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2960.rh73up.i386.rpm not installed"
so I did
rpm -q NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2960.rh73up.i386.rpm
and it said "NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2960.rh73up.i386.rpm installed"
So rpm doesn't know if it's there or not, I can't remove it, and try the
i686, so I am bigtime stuck.
Anybody know where to point me?
