Unable to install nvidia driver 450.66
Last modified: 2022-06-15 09:33:38 UTC
Hi on a fresh install of tumbleweed (kernel 5.8)
(and btw also on Leap 15.2 with Kernel 5.3) the nvidia driver 450.66 installation fails.
The culprit seems to be that the make system complains about missing scripts/Makefile.kcsan
Trying to report this to nvidia as well...
Reported upstream as well.
Main error message during install is
/usr/src/linux-5.8.4-1/Makefile:959: scripts/Makefile.kcsan: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target 'scripts/Makefile.kcsan'. Stop.
make: *** [Makefile:185: __sub-make] Error 2
make: *** [Makefile:81: modules] Error 2
Weird. Can't reproduce this here on current kernel of Tumbleweed (also 5.8.4-1). Mabye the G05 package is outdated. Please check this.
All actual, nothing to do with that.
Your response and this: https://unix.stackexchange.com/a/44167
gave me a hunch.
I had MAKEFLAGS=--no-print-directory -e in my .profile... and ran zypper from su resp. yast2 from the user session.
I propose to put a hint into the docs saying e.g: "Please ensure to start zypper with a clean environment without user settings changing the behavior of system tools like make, grep, ls."
Thanks for the quick reaction and please apologize the trouble...
Ok. Closing as invalid.
