Re: FC4 - Fail to install nVidia driver

I think support for legacy cards like yours (and mine) was dropped.

The cards supported by this driver and the ones only supported by the legacy driver are listed in appendix A of the README [1]. Is seems that the GeForce MX 400 is still supported by the normal release. Have you tried the rpm packages from Livna [2]? They're not at 76.67 yet (still at 71.74), but they allow for really easy installation (no xorg.conf editting necessary for instance). Download and install the nvidia-glx package plus the kernel-module-nvidia package for your kernel.

hi all,

i've installed Fedora Core 4 on my box which has a Geforce2 MMX 400 card.

i've installed kernel-devel rpm packege.
[mcarthor McArthor ~]$ rpm -qa | grep kernel
kernel-doc-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4
kernel-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4
kernel-devel-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4

i've disabled selinux as some posts say.

now i have nVidia 7667 driver also.

i invoke this command:
./NVIDIA-7667-pkg1.run --add-this-kernel
and no error occurs.

then i run
./NVIDIA-7667-pkg1-custom.run
and it gives error which is detailed in /var/log/nvidia-install.log

it SEEMs that the installer cannot insmod nVidia's driver module, and that the
error relates to gcc-4.0 and 4K stack, but i don't know what to do.


plz help me...

thx
