SOLVED: Mandrake 10 (2.6.3-16) and Nvidia 6111 driver.
Here is a solution that worked for me.

I have Mandrake 10, kernel 2.6.3-16 and a GForce4.


Step 0. NO need to modify your nv.c file, NO need to patch things, NO need to install mysterious pre-compiled kernels.

Step 1. run the 6111 package with the option --add-this-kernel (as suggested elsewhere in this forum)

[./NVIDIA-xxxx-pkg1.run --add-this-kernel]

this creates, after some stressful minutes, a "custom" package.

Step 2. run the custom package with no options.



Note: I was having the usual problems (fail to build, rivafb, make mrproper in log) so I no-ed the rivafb options in my kernel. I don't know if leaving them on Y or M will interfere with these instructions.

I would like to make a minor comment -

With the kernel-source rpm installed the process fails - one needs the kernel-source-stripped package instead.

Despite the sucess of the driver installation I still suffer from the famous "screen freezes but mouse pointer moves".

Please will somebody at NVIDIA wake up and solve this problem?
