What's the exact procedure you followed to apply the patch(es) and what's the exact error message you received?
whoops, my bad. it seems, upon careful re-reading of the README at minion, there's some other things i was missing.

# cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2/usr/src/nv/
# make install
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/linux-2.6.0-test4'
make[2]: `arch/i386/kernel/asm-offsets.s' is up to date.
*** Warning: Overriding SUBDIRS on the command line can cause

make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/linux-2.6.0-test4'
depmod: QM_MODULES: Function not implemented

make: *** [module-install] Error 1

this is the problem i get trying to modprobe any module, not just this one. have you run into this anywhere else? i just went out and got a new modutils which didn't fix it, so that's presumably not it. does it have to do with the new 'module unloading' code?


i replaced my modprobe again and it works now, but after doing 'make install' and changing my X config, it doesn't see the module, which is in /lib/modules/2.6.0-test4/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.ko . Is this the right place?
