View Full Version : NVidia kernel module under 2.4.x

Has anyone had any luck getting the NVidia kernel module (0.9-5) to compile against 2.4 headers?
(2.4.0-test11)

[from make install]
In file included from nv.c:77:
/usr/include/linux/spinlock.h:10: warning: `spin_lock_irqsave' redefined
/usr/i386-glibc21-linux/include/asm/spinlock.h:32: warning: this is the location of the previous definition

This is a stock RH7 system, using kgcc.

Well, to answer my own question, I needed the patch that is linked on this page:

Now, if only I could get it to work for more than 10 minutes I'd be happy. http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/wink.gif
