Question [suse91] rivafb driver conflict (driver install) -SOLVED-

Issue solved

Dear support,

I am experiencing some difficulties installing the latest NVIDIA driver ""

My first problem was that the correct header-files could not be located, so I ran:
"sh --kernel-source-path /usr/src/linux/"
I hope it was the right thing to do (it did bring me a step further).

Now The installer complains about a conflicting module called "rivafb" and when the build processbar reaches the 100% I get an error
message: ERROR: Unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module.
Some info:
System: amd 2000+
Chipset: VIA
uname -r command returns:

The listing of my /usr/src/ directory is:
linux -> linux-2.6.5-7.108
linux-obj -> linux-2.6.5-7.108-obj
Help would be greatly appreciated!

The nvidia-installer.log file has been attached to this post as reference (but needed the .txt extention, otherwise the error "invalid file type" was returned)
