I've been happily using the Debian nvidia packages for some time
(nvidia-kernel-source and nvidia-glx). Currently, I have the versions
from unstable. However, I recently upgraded to kernel 2.6.6 and so had
to re-compile the kernel modules provided by the package. Compilation
and installation seemed to go fine, but the nvidia module won't
load. The error message from modprobe is:
version magic `2.6.6 686 gcc-3.3' should be `2.6.6 preempt PENTIUM4 gcc-3.3'
Invalid module format
There has been much discussion of problems with the nvidia driver
but the discussions I've seen all have to do with pre-release
versions, and they also seem to suggest that the problem will arise
only if the option CONFIG_4KSTACKS is turned on. For me, though, this
option is not turned on:
# CONFIG_4KSTACKS is not set
Does anyone know if I can get around this problem?
Thanks very much,
