I've taken the plunge into the world of gentoo.
So far i love it.
I've had a 64 bit pc for over a year and this is the first time going with a 64 bit o/s.
I've gotten everything up and running. I'm loving emerge.
The only major trouble i'm having so far is video card drivers.
I've emerged nvidia-kernel and everything installs ok. But when i modprobe the nvidia driver i get an error:
localhost ~ # modprobe nvidia
FATAL: Error inserting nvidia (/lib/modules/2.6.14-gentoo-r5/video/nvidia.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
and dmesg give:
nvidia: Unknown symbol register_ioctl32_conversion
nvidia: Unknown symbol unregister_ioctl32_conversion
seems like a rather generic error and i have been unable to find a resolution to it. Is there a kernel option i need to include?
I've used a custom kernel (not much customization) and the genkernel. Both give the same error.
I'm at a loss right now. I have the standard nvidia geforce driver working, but i'd like to use the other one. I've tried downloading directly from nvidia and get the same thing.
Any help is appreciated.
