Module will not load at boot
I'm running Mandrake 10.0, and have installed the 5336 drivers. While it basically works, the nvidia module simply will not load at boot. I must log in and type "modprobe nvidia" first, then start X manually. I see that others on this forum have had similar problems, but many of the fixes they list don't help. Here's what I've tried:
The last line used to read: alias /dev/nvidia* NVDriver
I changed this to: alias /dev/nvidia* nvidia
I added the following: alias /dev/nvidia* nvidia
I added the following: nvidia
I tried the following sequence of commands:
> depmod 2.6.3-7mdk
> modeprobe nvidia
This makes it work for the current login, but on reboot the module still doesn't load.
Does anyone have any other thoughts? The drivers work, it's just a pain to have to manually load them on every boot.
