Thread: Kernel 2.6.31 and Nvidia

  1. #1

    Default Kernel 2.6.31 and Nvidia

    I can't install the drivers. I have kernel headers (though they are at 2.6.30 version), i have kernel-syms, kernel-desktop-devel, make and gcc is also there. Could it be somehow connected with that 2.6.31 kernel userspace?
    How does a linux geek make love??

    - rtfm; unzip; strip; touch; finger; mount; fsck; more; yes; umount; zip; sleep;

    It appears that 185.19 is not the newest driver but 185.18.31 which installed succesfully.

    The latest beta 190.xx didn't install either.

    Kernel headers _MUST_ match the kernel you are building!!!! If they
    are not the same, the building of any out-of-kernel driver will fail.

    I also did it and i was surprised that 185.19 is not the recommended driver Who would have thought that 185.19 is older than 185.18.31

    I downloaded 185.18.29 today and installed it on 2.6.31-rc5. It seems
    to be fine. That was the one that the website gave me.

    Sometimes it worth to read the nwforums, they are explained that a long time ago.
    I compiled the 190 driver, no problems so far.

    successful compile for me using nvidia drivers & kernel-devel-pae - although at the end of the process there was a seg fault. I went into Sax and set the resolution restarted X and all was well.

    now if only my HDA Intel sound and gtk apps would work...

    How did you update the kernel?
    Aren't there any dependency problems (VirtualBox kernel modules)?

    They have to be recompiled, but that is not a problem.
