Re: [linrad] Newcomer

I am not a Linux expert, and would suggest you heed the others' advice before following mine.

However, I can say that I believe I got the message you describe after I had upgraded the kernel from the one that was in place when I installed svgalib, etc.

I could be mistaken about this, since my playing around was 3-4 weeks ago now, and much of it occurred late at night in marathon sessions when sleep deprived, and I took some notes on what worked but not on all of the things that didn't work/caused problems ;)

However, if all else fails, if you did in fact update [or change] the kernel since installing svgalib, try using the old kernel that was in place when you first installed svgalib, and see if things work.

Good luck, and keep us posted!

Hello All,

I have the following setup :

AMD Athlon 64 3000+
Video : Generic NVIDIA Quadro FX

Linux : 32 bits FEDORA Core 3 (the 64 bits version works fine but very
few software can run on it)

Then I tried to install Linrad.

svgalib-1.9.19 compiles ok and generates 5 devices in the /dev folder :
svga, and svga1 to svga5
The /usr/local/lib folder contains the libvga.so.1.9.19 with 2 symbolic
links pointing at it (libvga.so and libvga.so.1)

I have installed nasm-0.98 without any problem.

I have installed linrad-01.31a :
 - ./configure doesn't show any error.
 - make compiles with no error.

After reboot, /dev/svga files are still there.

If I try to start linrad, I get the message :
svgalib: Cannot open /dev/svga
Is svgalib_helper module loaded?

a locate svgalib_helper give the result :

If I try to do an insmod of that file,I get the message : -1 Unknown
symbol in module

So does anybody have an idea of what I may have done wrong ?

Very 73
