#9 Cannot compile Nvidia drivers


Hi just trying to compile the Nvidia linux drivers under
the openmosix kernel. I have installed the source.

It says cannot find "modules.h"

I am using the 2.4.20-openmosix2 kernel. Using RedHat

Any help would be great.

    That sounds strange. Have you configured the kernel with
    make {menu|x|}config? Also, have you enabled modules
    support? And, are you sure the NVidia modules' include path
    is pointing to the right kernel source tree?

    I was actually using the RPM packages the 2.4.20-openmosix2
    kernel and the kernel-source package for the same.

    Yeah, strangely it didn't seem to find what it needed to
    compile these drivers with this configuration.

    I was able to get it working by downloading a brand new
    2.4.21 kernel and patched that with the openmosix patch.
    Seems to be working ok now. But it's a hella longer
    processes than RPM which I was hoping would work.
