The Nvidia build is looking for modversions.h - No such critter
modversions.h is a RedHat (Only, I do believe) header file.
In file included from nv.c:14:
nv-linux.h:24: linux/modversions.h: No such file or directory
In file included from /usr/src/linux/include/linux/module.h:11,
If you need any more info... let me know.
this modules requires, that you built your own kernel.

This is not the same as Bug # 8695.
This is not resolved as of a rsync of last night 11/06/2002 11:34p EST.
The build still looks for modversions.h which is not located on either a 1.2 or
1.4 Gentoo System.
I can trick the build into working by symlink'ing the modsetver.h with
modversions.h, but this is not the solution. I can send you a copy of the
modversions.h file from a RedHat system if you wish to look at what this
actually contains. The better solution would be to undeclare modversions.
there is some kind of silliness going on here, have you installed and compiled a kernel on this system yet? modversions.h is a file generated by compiling a linux kernel, NOT a file that should be installed by any gentoo package.
OK.. Rebuilt a kernel with Kernel Modules enabled. The kernels that I have been
using are monolithic. Seems if, when the kernel is built without modules and
module loading modversions.h is not generated.
So, that did resolve the problem.
Thanks for everyone's help
