Utiel, thank your response!
/etc/modules.conf contains "alias char-major-195 NVdriver"
"/sbin/modprobe NVdriver" loads NV fine. After running modprobe the command "/sbin/lsmod | grep NV" shows that NV loaded, but something is unused:
"NVdriver 988224 0 (unused)"
What does this mean ?
Is there a way to force module loader load the non-GPL licnensed modules ?
