Linux 2.6.24 and Nvidia Linux driver

Discussion in 'Nvidia' started by Man-wai Chang ToDie, Jan 26, 2008.

  1. Seems that the latest Nvidia driver has problem understanding the kernel
    version change from 2.6.23.xx to 2.6.24.

    How to make NVIDIA-Linux-x86-96.43.01-pkg1.run work under 2.6.24?

    Compile it from source. Have fun.

    Welcome to Linux where an update completely fucks up the rest of the
    system.

    Nvidia's video driver is working fine for all 2.6.23.x kernels. No
    ****-up so far! :)

    The Nvidia driver DOES compile from source for us. But seems that it
    couldn't recognize the new codes in kernel 2.6.24 source codes.

    Note that you don't have to use the latest kernel. It's just my interest
    to use the latest and greatest.
