Re: fedora-test-list, FC2: Solution without compiling kernel, X logout=box freeze



Hi all,

Using yum update isn't working with my nvidia GeForce 2 MX at present. The available rpms need fixing. Using the linuxant kernel appears to be a temporary fix if you also put "exclude = kernel*" in your yum.conf until this gets straightened out.

See:

http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-list/2004-June/msg01730.html
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=29208
http://www.linuxant.com/driverloader/wlan/full/downloads.php

or you could stick to traditional methods:

HIH,
Neal

If you are an xterm user using Fedora Core 1 or 2, please upgrade

Trying it on FC1 - The first thing I noticed is - the 'blue' color used by 'ls --color=auto' for 'dir' listings is different (a bit lighter shade. Not sure if this is a bug - but don't mind this new color.

I still have the old xterms running - so I could compare..


Yep, that's one of the changes. Upstream xterm's colors are slightly different from what Red Hat has shipped. I think they used to be very ugly or something, so we added customizations to make it prettier, then xterm cleaned itself up over time to look nicer, but with slightly different shade of blue. That's not fact, just personal hypothesis. ;o)

you don't need (nor can use) kernel-sourcecode package for compiling
drivers.... the normal rpms have all the needed info already.

NVIDIA suggests that kernel-source is indeed used.


Here is the error directly from the nvidia installer:
===========================================================================
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
==============================================================================

What is the kernel-sourcecode package used for?


Thanks, Ernest
