Default Re: ERROR : unable to determine the nvidia kernel module filename

Try this from the prompt:

# modprobe nvidia

It should return without errors, and you should be able to start X (use the startx command).

If that all went fine, open the file /etc/modprobe.conf with your favourite editor and check whether there is a line that says

alias char-major-195* nvidia

If it's not there, just append it to the file. Now, at the next reboot everything should be working fine.

And then, of course, the real fun starts. ;-)
