I'm trying to run 5.2 on a Dell 490, which has a NV Quadro FX 4500 in it.
I've updated the kernel after install, and I've installed kernel-devel and kernel-headers. I've also installed gcc:
[root@pcisd12 ~]# yum list installed |grep kernel
kernel-PAE.i686 2.6.18-92.el5 installed
kernel-PAE.i686 2.6.18-92.1.22.el5.cen installed
kernel-PAE.i686 2.6.18-92.1.22.el5 installed
kernel-devel.i686 2.6.18-92.1.22.el5.cen installed
kernel-headers.i386 2.6.18-92.1.22.el5.cen installed
[root@pcisd12 ~]# yum list installed |grep gcc
gcc.i386 4.1.2-42.el5 installed
libgcc.i386 4.1.2-42.el5 installed
However, the NVidia installer complains that I don't have the kernel-source used to build my kernel...:
Using: nvidia-installer ncurses user interface
-> License accepted.
-> Installing NVIDIA driver version 177.82.
-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you li
ke the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel f
rom the NVIDIA ftp site (ftp://download.nvidia.com
)? (Answer: No)
-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; this means
that the installer will need to compile a new kernel interface.
-> Performing CC sanity check with CC="cc".
-> Performing CC version check with CC="cc".
ERROR: Unable to find the kernel source tree for the currently running kernel.
Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your
kernel and that they are properly configured; on Red Hat Linux systems,
for example, be sure you have the 'kernel-source' or 'kernel-devel' RPM
installed. If you know the correct kernel source files are installed,
you may specify the kernel source path with the '--kernel-source-path'
command line option.
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 a
How do I resolve this? It seems right to me.:
