cannot reinstall nvidia driver on stock kernel

Post by lnthai2002 » 2006/02/09 15:14:39

Hi,
I have kernel [color=FF0000]2.6.9-22.0.1.106.unsupported[/color] and the stock kernel [color=0000FF]2.6.9-22.0.1.EL[/color] installed with their kernel-devel packages.
At first i installed Nvidia driver sucessfully on the stock kernel. Then i need some driver for my tv capture card, so i changed to the unsupport kernel and installed the Nvidia driver for it. Because of that, the nvidia installer removed the driver for the stock kernel and installed it on the unsupport kernel.
Now i need to use oracle 10g so i must use the stock kernel. Thus, i reinstall the nvidia driver for it. However, this time nvidia installer complains about my kernel:
ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'. This is most likely
because the kernel module was built using the wrong kernel source files.
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' 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.
-> Kernel module load error: insmod: error inserting './usr/src/nv/nvidia.ko':

What's wrong with my kernel? How can i fix this problem?
BTW, have anyone experienced problem with oracle 10g on the unsupport kernel?
Thanks in advance
