re-install driver whenever i boot another kernel
i'm quite happy with the NVidia graphics driver, but there's one thing
that really annoys me:
I have several different kernels on my system. Whenever i boot a
different kernel i need to re-install the drivers.
Install NVidia driver
Boot 2.6.4 -> no graphics support.
Can i somehow change that?

Re: re-install driver whenever i boot another kernel
Just don't use the installer to build the module for a second kernel.
Then the older module will not be uninstalled
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run --extract-only
For 2.4 kernels link Makefile.nvidia to Makefile
For 2.6 kernels link Makefile.kbuild to Makefile
make -f makefile.nvidia ( for 2.4) or make -f Makefile.kbuild (for 2.6)
