Openal Problems

Recommended Posts

OK another question. For the drivers it says IA32 and IA64, both linux. Theres an AMD64 to so I'm thinking this has something to do with my processor or is that for the chipset?

Yes, those drivers are refuring to the processor chipset.

 

If you have an intel 32 bit or 64 bit, use those (i suggest IA32, unless you have a 64bit intel processor)

I downloaded the IA32 one. When I installed I get:

 

ERROR Unable to find the kernel source tree for currently running kernel. Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your kernel; 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' commandline option. :P

theres /usr/src/rpm/rpms which contains the dirs athlon, i386, i486, i586, i686, k6, and noarch

 

When I open any of these they are empty.

 

I'm using Mandrakelinux 10.1

Install the kernel source rpm. You'll want it some time anyway.

urpmi kernel-source

should do the trick

ahaa!

 

Your having the same problems i was, you need to install the kernel-sources

 

i.e.

 

at a shell type (as root):

 

urpmi kernel-source

 

 

You might get dependancy errors, they could be something like ncurses-devel and ncurses.

 

if they are the above,

 

type (as root):

 

urpmi ncurses

 

urpmi ncurses-devel

 

then re-do:

 

urpmi kernel-source

 

Hope that helps.

Seems to have worked..no dependency errors so I am going to try this install again. Thanks everyone also :P

fyi:

 

You'll need to run this outside of X.

 

So at a command prompt, and as root, type:

 

telinit 3.

You will end up at a black screen (basically, the console, but in fullscreen)/

 

run the driver installation program.

once it has finished, you might need to restart your machine, just to be on the safe side, unless it says otherwise.

 

to do this, type, as root:

 

telinit 6

 

You should end up back in X

ftp://mandrake.mirrors.pair.com/Mandrakel...-1-1mdk.src.rpm

 

I belive prefixed the url with with rpm -ivh

It "should" automaticly, download and extract to the correct location.

 

*edit

ekk sorry late reply lol

That should be,

 

wget <the above url>

 

then

rpm -ivh name.of.rpm.arch.rpm

 

 

Never tried rpm with a url, it might work.

As i said zeplin, i've never used rpm like that. If it works (which it obviously does), i didnt know.

 

As for your error messages gnome.....one word. NASTY! :P

 

It looks as though it failed with compiling the nvidia driver, and that your kernel is configured to use a module that the nvidia drivers cannot operate with if loaded.

 

That could cause problems.

 

Are you sure you have kbuild installed?

 

 

urpmi kbuild

 

if you havent.

urpmi kbuild

 

if you havent.

http://kbuild.sourceforge.net/

 

Its for creating makefiles for projects, Not for end user use really.

And not the issue here, And gnu make is obviously installed.

 

I belive it has to do with the package he is useing for the nvidia driver.

no that just means there isnt a package in the urpmi databse called kbuild. its within a comman package, that of which i dont know.

 

Zeplin, it already looks as though he has done that.

 

Make sure (using the mandrake control center, mcc at the shell) you have all the development packages installed.

 

 

ALthough it looks as though that isnt a problem, its the compilation itself that has failed.....running out of ideas.

Zeplin, it already looks as though he has done that.

Yes, he did download the nvidia package, But pkg1 not pkg0

 

Ive seen similar problems on other forums, useing package 1, 99% of the time, useing pkg0 instead solves this issue.

Thats why i suggested useing pkg0.

Glad it worked, After pkg0 died, Google is my friend

 

I also remembered reading about nvidia issues with 2.6.9 on the lkmls, The patch to fix it was rejected, As really it should be fixed by nvidia.

the ck patchset added it for now. Probably be seeing it in other distros also for a little, unless they add the kernel fix or Nvidia release a new version shortly.

I rebooted my comp with windows and am going to re-install linux on a diff. partition...I don't have time to constantly work on linux until I get to know it a little better. Then I might make the total switch to linux.
