If you can get me a link to the driver download I can script the build process for you.

I just did a clean install, since I tried a few other things which did not work.

Without doing anything to the fresh install, I ran the command you mentioned. This was the result:
/var/log/packages/kernel-headers-3.18.16-x86_64-1vl71:usr/include/linux/version.h
Note: this was on a fresh install.

However, previously I am sure that the NVidia error message complained that the "version.h" file could not be found in a directory:
/lib/modules/3.18.16/build/include/linux/version.h

What would you recommend that I do next?

EDIT: I know that I need to install some packages, but it would reassure me if I had some explicit instructions to follow. ;)

(also, thanks for help so far)

I did a
Code: [Select]
grep -R linux/version.h /var/log/packages/ on a 7.1 install and this is the results I got

Code: [Select]
/var/log/packages/kernel-headers-3.18.16-x86_64-1vl71:usr/include/linux/version.h
/var/log/packages/kernel-src-3.18.26-x86_64-1vl71:usr/src/linux-3.18.26/usr/include/linux/version.h
/var/log/packages/kernel-src-3.18.26-x86_64-1vl71:usr/src/linux-3.18.26/include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h
/var/log/packages/kernel-headers-3.18.26-x86_64-1vl71:usr/include/linux/version.h
So, your kernel-headers and kernel-src should match the running kernel

That is confirmed to be my current kernel I'm afraid.

The card is from 1999 and the 2011 driver was the last one NVidia published. It seems that the missing "version.h" file is stored in a different folder in later kernels, so the 2011 NVidia binary is not compatible anymore. That is a real shame as VL light looks like a sweet OS.

When I use the old open-source "nv" driver, there are no artefacts, and I don't need 3d acceleration anyway, so this might be my best option. Please can someone suggest the best way to enable this driver and set the correct screen resolution in VL 7.1 light?

Does that match your running kernel? (check the output of "uname -a")

do not forget kernel-src!

Make sure you have a kernel-headers package with a version matching your kernel installed
I checked using "slapt-get --search" and I have the "kernel-headers" and "kernel-modules" packages installed for my kernel version (3.18.16).

Hello all.

I am trying to install the 2011 nVidia proprietary driver for my ancient RIVA TNT2 graphics card, because the Nouveau driver produces some unpleasant artefacts.

I was able to disable the Nouveau driver and in the command line I am able to start the nVidia installer. However, this was where the trouble really began.

The installer told me I was missing the kernel source. So I downloaded a file "kernel-src-3.18.16-x86-1vl71.txz" from the VectorLinux repositories. I then installed this file from the console using "installpkg kernel-src-3.18.16-x86-1vl71.txz".

The next time I tried running the nVidia installer this message was replaced by another error message.

Quote
ERROR: The kernel header file '/lib/modules/3.18.16/build/include/linux/version.h' does not exist. The most likely reason for this is that the kernel source files in '/lib/modules/3.18.16/build' have not been configured.

I hope I have not already borked this... :P

But the type of issue as described above also occurs with web pages.
