I have a problem wih installing a driver for GeeForce 6200 video card. I have built a package based on X11:Drivers:Video/nvidia-gfxG02 plus a patch for kernel 5,x. This autor of the patch tested it with several kernels up to 5,4,x.
The build is sussesfull, I get the binary package, but when I install it I get the following message:
make -f /usr/src/linux-3.10.18-lp152.106/scripts/Makefile.modpost
sed ‘s/ko$/o’ /usr/src/linux-5.3.18-default/modules.order | scripts//mod/modpost -m -a -i ./Modulesymvers -I /usr/src/kernel-modules/nvidia-304.137-default/Module.symvers -o /usr/src/kernel-modules/nvidia-304.137-default/Module.symvers -s -T -
FATAL: parse error in symbol dump file
NVIDIA: left KBUILD.
nvidia.ko failed to build!
A new Nvidia Card is also working as a new ATI Card.
The card wkazubski is using is an old card, my first card using with linux was a newer card Nvidia GS7600 in 2007 and it is also not supported by Nvidia anymore (G02).
What cards has ATI at the same time?
Think of fglrx at that time and what has ATI/AMD done with the fglrx driver?
I know the 2 people who has build it for openSUSE.
Patch worked without problems with kernels up to 5.0.13 for Tumbleweed. Since I have some older computers with GF 6200 or 7300 GPU’s i tried to build the driver for Leap 15.x. For 15.2 it almost succeded (crash at rpm install) so I expected a simple solution. But I see that it is not so simple.
For current Leap 15.3 I have more problems, the package does not build at all.
