Smile Re: NVIDIA NIC driver installation problems in Suse 9.0

I had the same problem and now it works !!

1.) download from suse the NEW KERNEL source from here (or your preferred mirror)
http://ftp.unicamp.br/pub/suse/i386/...1-199.i586.rpm

2.) install it ( yast will prompt you to install the base kernel source if you haven't done before )

3.) do the following as root (as written in the nvidia readme )

pushd /usr/src/linuxex
make cloneconfig
make dep
popd

4.) rebuild the rpm, ( you have to use the rpmbuild command, nor just rpm)

rpmbuild --rebuild nvidia_nforce{package na****-1.0-1.src.rpm

5.) install the fresh new RPM ( that you find in in /usr/src/packages/i586/RPMS )

Enjoy
