It seems that you definitely need to set some stuff up in advance,
since, for instance, this looks for kernel sources. I'm still not able
to get it all working.
I exploded the kernel SRPM with rpmbuild -bp, and then made a symlink
This makes the livna RPM rebuild get further, but it still fails with a
message asking me to make sure I'm running the right kernel version
(matching the sources, which I think I am), and something about
KBUILD_OUTPUT, KBUILD, and SYSOUT.
Doesn't anybody else get this?
In addition to what Jeff mentioned, I needed the following installed
(available from the yum repositories):
I found that I was also able to build the source rpm in runlevel 3. So,
for me, I first update the kernel, then I reboot to run level 3. Then I
use the following command to rebuild the source rpm:
rpmbuild --rebuild --target i686 nvidia-glx-1.0.7174-0.lvn.1.3.src.rpm
Note that this particular command builds an i686 architecture rpm set
based on the kernel you are running at the time.
Then, the *very first time* installed, I needed to install both
kernel-module-nvidia and nvidia-glx. After that, only
kernel-module-nvidia needs to be updated when you update the kernel.
Mine is working like a champ.
Hope that helps!
