Built the drivers. According to the installer log, it was a success. The drivers are sitting in /dev, nice and new. After messing around with manual edits of the XFree86config file for roughly ten hours, getting response after response that it could not load nvidia drivers, I finally just took a peek at the XFree display configuration utility. All I can see for nvidia cards is "nv". There is no "nvidia" driver set that it can see. Is this normal for a machine that has not had a successful boot with these new drivers, or is something else wrong?
Thanks in advance for any comments you come up with.
PS: see my other post for the installer log.
Try 'lsmod' from root console, is nvidia listed? And what do you get when you try 'modprobe nvidia' from root console?
