I recently installed Linux xfs using the install cd for Redhat7.1. I use an
Nvidia card and tried to compile the driver (using
SYSINCLUDE=/usr/src/linux-2.4/include). I keep getting unresolved symbols.
Is the xfs kernel src significantly different than the normal 2.4.2
distribution? I tried to install the nvidia driver the easy way and the long
way. I get the same results, unresolved symbols. I am assuming that the
correct kernel tree was installed to my system even though I used the xfs
I have to imagine someone there used the xfs install on an smp system and
then upgraded the nvidia driver to the hardware accelerated one from their
site. Of course, I could be wrong. I am somewhat of a neophyte to all of
this. But I have used a compiler before and I get the general idea of what's
going on, things don't match up. I used the rpm install first, which failed,
then went on to use the src tarball. I know you guys aren't responsible for
fixing problems with other people's hardware, but was curious to see if
anyone in-house came across this problem.
