Firstly sorry for the non pymol question, but if I can fix this I can
use pymol in 3D.
So the problem is that I can't get my nvidia driver to work! As I hear
the groans...I have tried many things to no avail.
AMD-64 bit opteron dual processor
nvidia quad 980
updated to 2.4.21-27.0.2.EL
I'm using redhat for other proprietary software requirements so
unfortunately I xcan't use anything else. (we could make it work on
fedora core 2!)
I firstly get the gcc_version check error. I can get around that by
using export IGNORE_CC_MISMATH command.
I then get this:
"If you are using a Linux 2.4 kernel, please make sure
you either have configured kernel sources matching your
kernel or the correct set of kernel headers installed
on your system."
I don't have red hat support yet. The problem appears to be that the
nvidia installer (nvidia...6629pkg2.run) is getting confused as to which
kernel is running.
Has anyone else had these issues/knows any hints.
Many thanks in advance

Just a couple of quick thoughts --
1) Does /usr/src/linux point to the original installed kernel soruces or
the updated kernel sources? Some software will look in /usr/src/linux for
the headers, and if these aren't the headers for the kernel you're
actually using the module won't load.
1b) The compiled kernel has the exact version number encoded in it, as
does every module. Therefore, unless you have the source for
2.4.21-27.0.2.EL, there is no (easy, safe, and guaranteed) way to compile
the module and have it work on your system.
2) Sometimes it is necessary to use an earlier driver. I had to go back
several versions to get a friend's Inspiron 5150 to work - the newer
drivers just froze X.
