RH8 uses devfs. Therefore, your alias (char-major-195) will not autoload the nvidia.o (you are using 4191, right?) module when it's needed.

No, the module is not supposed to load until you try to start X, but if you have devfs running, that alias won't even load it then. Try changing the alias to alias /dev/nvidia* nvidia, and that should make it load when you start X. However, if you're still seeing problems after you manually modprobe nvidia, then you'll probably see them after changing the alias...

Hmmm...

Well, try it anyway, but if it still doesn't work, I won't be surprised...
