Re: Unable to build NVIDIA kernel module

Quoting "Ian Lists. Marks" <ian-list insourced us>:
Has anyone been able to build the latest stable NVIDIA driver in the last couple kernel updates on Core6 pre? Everything was working great until kernel-2.6.18-1.2741 I believe. I tried upgrading to kernel-2.6.18-1.2747 and am having the same problem. Below is the error in the nvidia-installer.log file I am seeing.

   include/asm/io.h: In function ‘check_signature’:
   include/asm/io.h:245: warning: wrong type argument to increment
make[4]: *** [/tmp/selfgz3357/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8774-pkg1/usr/src/nv/nv.o
   ] Error 1
make[3]: *** [_module_/tmp/selfgz3357/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8774-pkg1/usr/src
   /nv] Error 2
   make[2]: *** [modules] Error 2
   nvidia.ko failed to build!
   make[1]: *** [mdl] Error 1
   make: *** [module] Error 2
-> Error.
ERROR: Unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module.
ERROR: Installation has failed.  Please see the file
       '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details.  You may find suggestions
       on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
       driver download page at www.nvidia.com.

I saw this the other night as well. you can always just create a file such as:
# touch /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/include/linux/config.h

This will just make a blank file for the include, and will stop the file not found error message for linux/config.h.
