Default Re: multi-kernel nvidia driver installation problem

You need to have the kernel source for each kernel, specifically, and have that source configured (.config and Modules.symvers present or available).

% Run the installer with the --extract-only option.
% cd NVIDIA*/usr/src/nv
% make clean
% make module
% cp nvidia.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/video

This process for each separate kernel should do the trick.. provided you installed the driver normally for one of them. (do this while running the target kernel, or fix the path the module is copied to appropriately)
