    Hello,

    Ive installed NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run in Mandrake 10.1

    sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run

    I wrote "nvidia" instead of "nv" in XF86Config

    Here is a piece of the log file:

    5336 is an old version. Try with the new version and see if you get the same problem:

    Ah I had this problem too.
    check out both of these threads.
    http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/topic-35830.html
    http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/topic-35772.html
    Also in the second topic you will see a link to the nvidia linux forum where there are numerous examples of how to get the module to load on boot.
    good luck.
