Trouble with Kernel

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

My NVIDIA drivers for some reason have stopped working and I have had to go back to the standard drivers.

When ever I try to reinstall the drivers I get the following error.

-> License accepted.

-> There appears to already be a driver installed on your system (version: 1.0-

6629). As part of installing this driver (version: 1.0-6629), the existing

driver will be uninstalled. Are you sure you want to continue? ('no' will a

bort installation) (Answer: Yes)

-> 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: Yes)

ERROR: Unable to connect to download.nvidia.com (temporary DNS error (try again

later))

-> No matching precompiled kernel interface was found on the NVIDIA ftp site;

this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for

your kernel.

-> Kernel source path: '/lib/modules/2.6.8.1-12mdk/source'

-> Performing CC test with CC="cc".

ERROR: 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.

 

If you are using a Linux 2.6 kernel, please make sure

you have configured kernel sources matching your kernel

installed on your system. If you specified a separate

output directory using either the "KBUILD_OUTPUT" or

the "O" KBUILD parameter, make sure to specify this

directory with the SYSOUT environment variable or with

the appropriate nvidia-installer 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 available on the Linux

driver download page at www.nvidia.com.

Thanks for your help.

I did as you told and removed the drivers without any faults or errors.

Only prob is that I still get the same error when trying to reinstall them again.

Any more clues, or any other logs you need to see?
