    nvidia driver problemo


    I installed the driver fine with the script from nvidia.
    But when i run modprobe nvidia i get:

    # modprobe nvidia
    FATAL: Error inserting nvidia (/lib/modules/2.6.13/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.ko): No such device

    Any ideas as to what the problem is and any solution?

    Check and make sure that the nVidia drivers are installed for one by re-installing them, make sure you have configured them, and lastly make sure they are compatible with the kernel(had that problem installing ati drivers when kenrel 2.6.11 was new, they updated them after I got rid of the distro I was using and I was PISSED).
    Nothing is worse than ten penguins fighting over which is better, vi or emacs.

    you shouldn't ever need to modprobe nvidia manually

    but try a depmod -aq

    did the install finish correctly?

    it should build and install on 2.6.13 fine

    It turns out (After searching around nvidia website) i had to install an older driver for the video card to work... So i did, and it works
