Default Re: Mandrake 9.1b HELP!

NO, they will NOT work with anything other than Mandrake 9.

The problem is that Mandrake 9.1 beta uses a different kernel. The precompiled RPMs were not built against that kernel. You need to find the kernel source (which, BTW, Mandrake apparently didn't put on the 9.1 Beta CDs, at least according to a few other people), install it, and compile the drivers yourself. Although NVchooser would have told you that...
