Debian 3.0r1 with nForce2 (Shuttle SN41G2)
I'm having a few strange probelsm with debian - woody.

I have got the nvnet module complied and installed (its in the normal place: /lib/mobules/2.4.18/kernel/drivers/net.nvnet.o ) However when i attemp to do a `modprobe -v nvnet` ir just silently returns without an error and without loading the module. The only way so far that i have got the module loaded is to insmod it - but i seem to rememebr that insmod is mad wrt to modprobe.

I also had trouble with the audio drivers - patching failed. I haven't really looked into this problem yet, but any pointers would help.

My bad. I discovered my problem;

In modules.conf

i had

alias nvnet eth0

When it should have been

alias eth0 nvnet

I had the same problem with the audio patch files myself. If you look at the code in the i810_audio.c file you can see the place where the patch should probably go in, but it doesn't exactly match the diff output provided by nVidia in the .patch file. If you change the patch file's context lines to exactly match your i810_audio.c it should install without any problems. I haven't been able to test sound output yet because of my lack of network and not being able to retrieve a sound player program, but it appears to be loading up properly on bootup and lsmod lists it.
If you need it, I can post my patch file tonight when I get back from work. I don't see any reason it wouldn't work with Sarge as well as Woody.
