world update nvidia problem

Post by MerryMurray » Mon Mar 30, 2009 23:37

Hi
Just did a world update in Sabayon Four to kernel 2.26.29. Installed the Nvidia 2.26.29 driver before rebooting and eseleted it. On reboot got the following error:
"Api mismatch: The Nvidia kernel module has version 180.11 but the Nvidia driver component has version 180.41. Please make sure the that the kernel
module and all Nvidia drivers components have the same version."

How do I do this? Modprobe , I think, but how?

Thanks in advance, Murray.

try:

Code: Select all

equo remove nvidia-drivers && rmmod nvidia && rm /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/video/nvidia.ko && rm /usr/lib/opengl/nvidia -rf && equo install nvidia-drivers && eselect opengl set nvidia && reboot

I had the same problem, what solves it is downgrading your driver to the same version that your settings have.

I mean if you have nvidia-settings-180.11, you should also have nvidia-driver-180.11, as your comment mentions you have a newer driver so settings have problems :s

on terminal run emerge -s nvidia, that'll tell you what's the newer version available, just make sure you install the same on both.

let me know if this works for you

regards
