Happy new year everyone.
I've searched this forum already for this problem and come up with:
However, the method of install in this thread is slightly different from my install method, and I already have nvidia in /etc/modules.
Running Debian unstable with kernel 2.6.9 and the Nvidia 6111 jp patched driver (this gets around the problem with vmalloc).
Before my 2.6.9 kernel, I used to compile the nvidia module alongside my kernel (with make-kpkg). However, since I've had to use the patched version, I've switched over to using the nvidia install program again.
The problem is that after rebooting, I need to reinstall the driver each time. Is there any way in which I can get around this reinstall each time?
