OpenSUSE Hardware :: Can't Build Fglrx Module In Kernel 2.6.36

Nov 7, 2010

That's it guys. I have successfully installed the proprietary ati drivers in past 6.34 and 6.35 kernels but not in latest .6.36. I'm wondering if this have something to do with compatibility or not.

Installation log shows me some errors I can't recognize:

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Unable To Build Kernel Module For NVidia On A Fresh 11.4 Installation?

Mar 13, 2011

I'm trying to install the nVidia driver for a fresh Installation of OpenSUSE 11.4 (32-bit) but I'm running into some issues. I followed the instructions (SDB:NVIDIA the hard way - openSUSE) using the driver binary mentioned in the workaround link (NVIDIA DRIVERS 256.53 Certified) but the installer fails while building the kernel module with the following errors:

OpenSUSE Install :: Failed To Load Module "fglrx" (module Does Not Exist, 0)

May 8, 2011

I've installed openSuse 11.4 server-mode (text only) on my desktop, and I'm trying to configure IceWM so i'll eventually have it set up so it always boots into text only mode, but I could be able to quickly start icewm via the command line.using Yast, I installed the Xorg server, and icewm.when I type X, the screen goes black and it just doesn't seem to do anythingI found if I hit ctrl+alt+f1 it kinda puts me back into text only mode, but I can't put in commands anymore. The last thing it says on the screen is:

Failed to load module "fglrx" (module does not exist, 0)

I've goggled that error message and the discussions that popped up around it made no sense to me at all. I've never configured X from scratch before, can someone point me towards a tutorial or something?

Slackware :: Can't Build VirtualBox Kernel Module In 13.1

Apr 26, 2011

I am using the 13.1 build scripts from I modified the scripts to build 3.2.12 rather than 3.2.10.

In 13.1 the main VirtualBox 3.2.12 OSE package built and installed without errors. The VirtualBox GUI starts without errors.

Running the script built a kernel source package without errors.

Yet the VirtualBox kernel module won't build. I receive the following error:

Debian Hardware :: NVidia Kernel Module Won't Build?

I can't get the nVidia kernel module built. Each time DKMS runs to install it (I'm trying to install it with the nvidia-kernel-legacy-173xx-dkms package on ), the build fails with a different error. Here is an exemple /var/lib/dkms/nvidia/173.14.27/build/make.log (I have a geForce FX 5200 on the computer I'm trying to install the nVidia driver):

Programming :: Build Module Against Headers That Are Not From Running Kernel?

Apr 13, 2011

I'm trying to debug a module I programmed but I don't want to do it on the running host but against UML (don't want to reboot every 5 minutes).

The UML kernel I downloaded is I have already downloaded the ubuntu kernel headers for this version (they belong to natty though I'm running maverick.... when I installed the .deb file with dpkg I had no problem at all).

Now I'd like to build said module against these headers. How can I do it?

Here's the makefile for my module code...

Slackware :: VirtualBox < 3.1.4 Module Build Fails On 2.6.33 Kernel

Mar 4, 2010

I had an issue with the module build for vbox 3.1.2 breaking on the latest kernel ( /etc/rc.d/rc.vboxdrv setup ). Apparently the issue is that a kernel header (autoconf.h ) has changed its location in the module tree and hence the issue.

2 options:

1. upgrade to 3.1.4

2. create a symlink as follows

cd /usr/src/linux/include/linux
ln -s ../generated/autoconf.h autoconf.h

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Build The NVIDIA Kernel Module?

Feb 26, 2011

before i get a lot of annoyed responses, I did check the forum and found a couple older previous threads on this topic, but they don't seem to really explain any real solutions to the problem im having.Here's the story- I was looking around for instructions and found this "howto guide" on installing nvidia display driver [URL]I went through the steps he listed:

downloaded the driver packages, install the dependencies from the shell, and then i pressed CTRL+ALT+F2 to get out of X and into text mode. I stopped my gdm with the command: sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stopand then i tried to install the driver using: sudo sh (on my NVIDIA driver- his version was a bit outdated compared to the one I downloaded)But here is where the problem starts, as I go through the installation process and click yes, i reach the "progress bar" then the screen says "unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module". and then it just exits. What is going on here? Am I missing some other package or file?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: FGLRX/Kernel - Compilation Error ?

I've been reading about a temporary solution to the kernel/Fglrx issue caused by the last kernel update, but I haven't read about any permanent solution to this issue. Anyone know anything about a permanent solution (new kernel update?, new Fglrx driver?) to this compilation error?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Kernel Update And Fglrx Driver ?

Oct 29, 2010

I have an HP laptop running 11.3/KDE4.5.2, has integrated HD3200 ati graphics.

Yesterday, ATI version 10.10 fglrx driver was installed on the system, kernel was I use the "build rpm" option with the downloads from ATI. All seemed running well.

I had installed the automatic recompile script posted by please_try_again after moving to, so today's new update was a chance to see it in action.

After the update and reboot, the X server restarted so I have to assume the automatic recompile script ran, although I did not see any messaging (place to look?).

However, some things did not seem "quite right". fgl_glxgears ran, but seemed slow (only 70 or so fps) pm-suspend failed to sleep the machine, I see the error message "s2ram_do: Device or resource busy" in /var/log/pm-suspend.log, which I think (?) is fglrx related but not sure why I think that. I moved to a root terminal, init 3, removed the fglrx rpm with yast, deleted the fglrx rpm and rebuilt a new one with I then installed the new rpm (with yast), ran aticonfig --initial, then rebooted.

Basically, I am at the same level as above, fglrx installed and running, but slow and pm-suspend still not working.

So now I wonder if there is a new problem with the -5 kernel update, something like the excitement a couple weeks back when we had to patch the driver (or the kernel symbols) just to get a compile.

Can i assume someone has been able to cleanly update to and get their fglrx running again?

An observation, which may or may not be related to my issues. The fglrx rpm installs a new /usr/lib64/dri/, but in reviewing the log file /var/log/Xorg.0.log, it never appears to load. Two other *dri*.so modules do load. There is no "dri" section in Xorg.conf; I seem to recall there being one a while back, but much seems to be changing there.

OpenSUSE :: Kernel Module Development Barked

Feb 27, 2011

It is bad enough that the kernel gods have basically required that the whole kernel source tree be installed and configured to compile even a simple module but they have made it so a module compiled on one kernel will not work on any other.

To make the situation worse much of the configuration needed to successfully compile a module has been left out of open suse11.3. If you want to replicate the problems may I suggest you attempt to compile the usb-skeleton.c driver example code that is included with each kernel. If it is the intent of the linux community to limit driver development to the professionals then congratulations.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Build / Make Custom Driver Into Kernel?

Mar 29, 2009

I'm new to linux and recently installed openSUSE 11.1 on my Lenovo Thinkpad SL500. So far it's great... only problem is the hotkeys and brightness control don't work. Digging around online I found this "experimental" driver that purportedly works fine, but I have no idea how to compile, install, or otherwise use it. Here... tetromino's lenovo-sl-laptop at master - GitHub I'm not sure what to do with the makefile and C file provided. For example, what do I do with this instruction...

"To enable the brightness control, load the module with the "control_backlight=1" module parameter (i.e. insmod lenovo-sl-laptop.ko control_backlight=1 )" I know someone on here will be able to explain how to do this in a "computer engineering for chemists" language! I'm comfortable enough working in the terminal with commands, but have found no real straightforward explanation of how to do so (only "programming" experience is MATLAB m file writing).

OpenSUSE Install :: Apparmor Module Does Not Load On Kernel-rt?

Aug 6, 2010

I have just reinstalled OS 11.2 but this time the 64bit system variant. I installed the real-time kernel and saw that the apparmor module reported an error and wasn't loaded. I have never looked into apparmor and only knows it has something to do with security, and thus I wonder if it is important to do something with this issue? I plan to use the kernel-rt and have more or less always used a variant of this kernel flavour, often self built. Though I can not recall having seen that error before and I have not used a 64bit system before

OpenSUSE :: Recompiling VirtualBox Vboxadd Kernel Module, NOT. It Has Been Packaged

Jun 29, 2011

I just up-graded to the latest version of the stable 11.4 64bit kernel on my laptop and it appears that the repositories have not compiled the VirtualBox driver module for the current kernel ... When I make /vboxdrv setup the message is:

Recompiling VirtualBox vboxadd kernel module, NOT. It has been packaged

I think this means that the installed module will not recompile has it was packaged. My kernel version is the lattest :

And my VirtualBox was installed from the Virtualization repos ( even made the Vendor change and all. The version Before the lattest (4.0.4-1.6) did not work either. With the same problem. It is very easy to install VirtualBox from the Sun site and every time there is a Kernel up-date one can always make /etc/vboxdrv setup.
