Module will not load at boot
I'm running Mandrake 10.0, and have installed the 5336 drivers. While it basically works, the nvidia module simply will not load at boot. I must log in and type "modprobe nvidia" first, then start X manually. I see that others on this forum have had similar problems, but many of the fixes they list don't help. Here's what I've tried:

The last line used to read: alias /dev/nvidia* NVDriver
I changed this to: alias /dev/nvidia* nvidia

I added the following: alias /dev/nvidia* nvidia

I added the following: nvidia

I tried the following sequence of commands:
> depmod 2.6.3-7mdk
> modeprobe nvidia

This makes it work for the current login, but on reboot the module still doesn't load.

Does anyone have any other thoughts? The drivers work, it's just a pain to have to manually load them on every boot.

Re: Module will not load at boot
In Mandrake 9.2 I put nvidia in/etc/modprobe.preload (2.6 kernel).

Re: Module will not load at boot
Excellent, that did it. Thanks!

The odd thing is, when I was running Mandrake 9.2 it just worked. All I had to do was run the installer and modify my XF86Config-4 file. I wonder though if 9.2 had an older kernel by default?
