I downloaded and rebuilt a 220.127.116.11 kernel with the existing config
(make modules && make modules_install && make bzImage). I installed the
new kernel and adjusted the menu.lst of grub.
I rebooted into the new kernel and run the nvidia script successfully.
But as soon as I try to use the nvidia instead of the nv driver, I get
weird results. I'll investigate further tomorrow. For now I'm a bit
disappointed because I spent two days with all this weird stuff.
Thanks a lot for all the help,
- Hi all,
thanks to the hints in this group, I got it to work. I "simply" took a
nvidia driver which was released at the time when my current kernel was
the current kernel, and the problem with symbols not found is gone. I
have cloned twin view at 1024x768 working right now, so the
presentation will hopefully work well.
A special thanks to Alexandre who clearly stated that getting the nvidia
driver to work is worth the efforts.
Thanks & best regards
