I've built a kernel with loadable module support for various reasons, one of them the possibility to compile modules and load them without rebooting. This is supposed to be useful when I need a module that I had not enabled in the kernel config.
Now, with drivers like nouveau, it's as easy as going to the source directory, and running make M=drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau.
Guys, probably an obvious error so I apologise in advance - trying to install vmware player, and it needs the kernel-source to build drivers.
I've gone out and downloaded kernel-source for my running kernel.
However it's complaining that the kernel-source (184.108.40.206-0.1) does not match the running kernel (220.127.116.11-0.1-desktop).
I just built the latest kernel from source and all went well, except when I boot into the new kernel I have no graphics acceleration. When I boot into the other kernel (3.2.something) I have nvidia drivers.
Hi, thanks for the quick reply!Like I said, I have no problems with installation and use on standard kernel. However, during installation on LTS kernel, I get errors while compiling kernel modules. I am told to check "/tmp/vbox-install.log" to find out what went wrong. This is the message :"Makefile:90: *** Error: unable to find the sources of your current Linux ke
I installed F17 on my pc a few months ago, I am pretty sure that at first it did supported both of my monitors with the open source drivers. Then I installed the propietary drivers. And last week I updated the kernel, and it turn out that the legacy drivers for my ATI Radeon 3600 dont work on the kernel 3.5, they wont compile.
