Cannot compile NVIDIA driver on RHEL 7.5 beta workstation using NVIDIA installer or compiling from source code directory. Tried to build latest and previous versions: NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-390.42 and NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-384.111. When I build from source I get the following make error:
make: Entering directory
/usr/src/kernels/3.10.0-830.el7.x86_64' Building modules, stage 2. MODPOST 4 modules FATAL: modpost: GPL-incompatible module nvidia.ko uses GPL-only symbol '__cachemode2pte_tbl' make: *** [__modpost] Error 1 make: *** [modules] Error 2 make: *** [sub-make] Error 2 make: Leaving directory /usr/src/kernels/3.10.0-830.el7.x86_64’
make: *** [modules] Error 2
I opened a support case with Red Hat and was told, since the NVIDIA driver is not licensed under the GPL, it cannot use certain symbols in the kernel. This is a problem that NVIDIA will have to fix with their driver.
Is there a fix I can apply to the NVIDIA driver that will allow me to build the driver?
