Just to be sure, I downloaded again, from the amd64 repository.
Recomplied the module, reinstalled, and...
# modprobe nvidia
FATAL: Error inserting nvidia (/lib/modules/2.6.14-vs2.1.0-rc5+g2/nvidia/nvidia.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
The relevant lines:
[ 9272.404373] nvidia: Unknown symbol register_ioctl32_conversion
[ 9272.404450] nvidia: Unknown symbol unregister_ioctl32_conversion
- For version 1.0.7174, "modprobe" fails for kernel 2.6.14.
- (from my previous attempt with maybe incompatible 32bit "source") for
version 1.0.7676, "modprobe" loads the module, but it doesn't work (i.e.
the screen goes blank when starting the X server).
It seems that I'm stuck! :-/
