Question NFORCE install fails on SuSE 10

Hi,

I just noticed that there is a new driver for the Nforce chipset, and I have been having intermittent problems with the NIC on my Nforce4 mobo ever since I bought it. Ocassionally, the onboard NIC (not the Marvell gigabit) will completely lock up. The symptoms are that the link light will flip between UP and DOWN every 10 seconds or so. Only a hard reboot (complete power off) will fix it.

Hence my rush to get the new driver installed: I followed the instructions for SuSE 10, and got the following error message:

rpm -ivh nv-suse10-2.6.13-15.x86_64.rpm

FATAL: Could not open '/boot/System.map-2.6.13-15-smp': No such file or directory
mv: cannot stat `/boot/initrd-2.6.13-15-smp': No such file or directory

The contents of /boot are:
/boot # ls
. initrd-2.6.13-15.11-smp
.. lost+found
System.map-2.6.13-15.11-smp message
backup_mbr symvers-2.6.13-15.11-x86_64-smp.gz
boot vmlinux-2.6.13-15.11-smp.gz
config-2.6.13-15.11-smp vmlinuz
grub vmlinuz-2.6.13-15.11-smp
initrd

So my question is: how do I get the RPM to recognise that the installed kernel version is: 2.6.13-15.11-smp and NOT 2.6.13-15-smp, which seems to be hard coded into the file?

Cheers, Jon.
