Re: Question about installing nvidia driver

Thank you for your reply.

After I make do the following things, the nvidia-installer can run, but
I cannot still install the nvidia driver.

cd /usr/src/linux
make include/version.h

I do not know how to solve this problem, although someone say that the
solution is in the README file...

RROR: Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'. This is most likely
because the kernel module was built using the wrong kernel source files.
Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your
kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you have the
'kernel-source' rpm installed. If you know the correct kernel source
files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the
'--kernel-source-path' commandline option.
-> Kernel module load error: insmod: QM_MODULES: Function not implemented

insmod: cannot open /proc/ksyms No such file or directory
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file
'/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions
on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
driver download page at www.nvidia.com.

Any suggestion?
