    Request for Kelmo

    Hi Kelmo,

    Could you update your procedure for compiling the nvidia drivers into the new 2.6.6 kernel that's in the 2004-5-17 release? I tried to modify it appropriately myself but it won't work for me. I''d really appreciate it.

    Kelmo's modified version for kernel 2.6.6:

    cp linux-2.6.6.tar.bz2 /usr/src
    tar jxvf linux-2.6.6.tar.bz2
    rm -f linux
    ln -s linux-2.6.6 linux
    cp /boot/config-2.6.6 linux/.config
    cd linux/include
    ln -s asm-i386 asm
    cd ..
    make oldconfig
    patch -p1 <../knoppix-kernel26.patch
    cd /usr/bin
    rm -f gcc (the kernel image was compiled with gcc-2.95 but symlink is to gcc-3.3)
    ln -s gcc-2.95 gcc
    cd /usr/src
    make (this will compile your kernel, will take sometime to finish)

    apt-get update
    apt-get install nvidia-kernel-common nvidia-kernel-source
    tar zxvf nvidia-kernel-source.tar.gz
    cd modules/nvidia-kernel
    debian/rules KSRC=/usr/src/linux-2.6.6 KVERS=2.6.6 kdist_image
    cd ..
    dpkg -i nvidia-kernel-2.6.6_1.0.5336-6_i386.deb
    apt-get install nvidia-glx
    cd /usrbin
    rm -f gcc
    ln -s gcc-3.3 gcc

    Edit /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 :

    Drivers Section
    Replace "nv" with "nvidia"

    Modules Section
    Remove or comment out lines including "dri" and "GLCore"
    Ensure there is a line with Load "glx"

    Hi Shah,
    Thanks for the great reply!!! Strangely, I managed to do something very similar just yesterday. I'll keep this as I plan on doing a better job of it next week.

    Thanks very much
