6111 not working in Mandrake 10
I compiled with the "--add-this-kernel" option and ran the custom run file... tried other things, nothing seems to work :(
It worked a couple days ago, but then I reformatted and installed THE SAME FREAKIN' VERSION OF MANDRAKE with the SAME NVIDIA DRIVERS but it won't work now!

Re: 6111 not working in Mandrake 10
Something tells me you might need to install the Kernel source, as it is not typically insatlled by default in a new Mandrake install.

Please read log/error messages more carefully, the NVIDIA kernel module clearly linked, but failed to load. The output of dmesg (following the failed installation) might provide additional information.

Re: 6111 not working in Mandrake 10
Did u try with NVIDIA..........pkg1-custom.run or NVIDIA..........pkg1.run --add-this-kernel ?!? You have to run --add-this-kernel option again.

Re: 6111 not working in Mandrake 10
To run the nvidia package make sure that you have the "kernel-source-stripped" package - not the "kernel-source" package om Mandrake 10.0.

I had the same problem. The driver still locks up X on fx5700 - mouse moves though!!

Re: 6111 not working in Mandrake 10
The problem here clearly isn't related to missing kernel sources, the kernel module fails to load because the NVIDIA kernel module's probe routine fails. Please make sure that the rivafb module isn't loaded, that Plug & Play OS is disabled in the system BIOS and Assign IRQ to VGA enabled. Please post the output of lspci -vv -n -s 01:00.0.

I had the same problem and "--add-this-kernel" helped ... realy
