Default installation with 4496: problem

Mandrake 8.2
XFree 4.2
GeForce2 MX 400

When I install the drivers with the installer it works fine.
When I reboot, it stops working.
To get it working again I have to uninstall then re install the installer.
When I get the xserver working again and I check on XF86Config the file has been rewritten and my changes taken out.

How do I make the drivers stick?

modprobe nvidia

warining loading (path)/nvidia.o will taint the kernel
(path)/nvidia.o: init_module: Device or resource busy
insmod (path)/nvidia.o failed
insmod nvidia failed


I don't think it worked!

XF86config has settled down and stopped updating itself.

According to lsmod nvidia has been loaded.

But, I can stop and start the xserver with no problems.
When I reboot I have to uninstall then re-install the drivers.
It then works flawlessly until I reboot, when I have to uninst...(blah blah blah)

Check that the /etc/modules.conf file contains a line:


alias char-major-195 nvidia

Added the line to /etc/modules.conf, but I also had to add nvidia to /etc/modules. Now it is working.
Cheers
