I am running redhat 6.1 with XFree86 4.01 . The video card is
a Geforce DDR. My current nv_drv.o , wich came with the redhat distro,
I installed NVIDIA kernel 0.9-5 src rpm ( had to build
because of kernel mismatch... ) , took care of old mesa files and
links , then installed NVIDIA_GLX-0.9-5.i386.rpm . I changed the
xconfig so it would call driver "nvidia" , then when I would start x,
and get an error saying it could not open /dev/nvidia0 ( my /dev dir
does contain that file..) and a message that my NVdriver kernel
appears to not have been installed properly !
lsmod list the NVdriver as used by (autoclean) ... I also made
sure the line alias char-major-195 NVdriver is in my conf.modules
file. I then tryed to install the NVdriver again by using the
tarball.. . same result ..
If anyone has could help me out I would greatly appreciate !
