I just upgraded my graphics card from a Nvidia 8800GT to Nvidia GTX970. Then X would not start, so I decided to reinstall nvidia-drivers. That did not work, so I reinstalled Xorg as well. It seems like I cannot load any module anymore, including my graphics driver:

Code:

# modprobe nvidia
modprobe: QM_MODULES: Function not implemented

modprobe: QM_MODULES: Function not implemented

modprobe: Can't locate module nvidia


I decided to upgrade my kernel. The kernel itself compiled just fine with no errors. However, the modules does not seem to install correctly:

Code:

I can boot the new kernel and it seems to work just fine. Except for the modules that still gives same error as above when loading. So I have no graphics and no sound.

I am using the 64-bit version of Gentoo and kernel version 3.16.5-gentoo. Seems strange to be that the bzImage generated for x86_64 is just symlinked to the regular x86 version. But I guess that's how it should be?

Any help is appreciated :-)

Try it without the -j5? I don't see how that'd benefit straight file copies anyway...

I compiled the kernel using make -j5 before doing modules_install so I forgot to remove the argument. I tried to do "make modules_install" without -j5 and the result are exactly as before. Lots of unresolved symbols. And I still can't modprobe anything :(

So, I still need a solution. Thanks in advance :-)

I think that an udev upgrade solved the problem. I can compile the modules now and load them without problems :-)
