Does the installation work with the default SuSE kernel?
Where did you obtain this 2.6.13-test1-15.7-default_collinm kernel?

What happens if you attempt to install the nvidia driver in your kernel without using any options?

Thanks,

"ERROR: No package found for installation" means that you're calling the installer incorrectly. What "nvidia driver installer" are you removing?

What is the full command that you're using?
Which driver version are you trying to install?

-Lonni
driver: 7676

i tried a lot of command

/usr/share/doc/nvidia/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7676-pkg1.run

/usr/share/doc/nvidia/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7676-pkg1.run -k

/usr/share/doc/nvidia/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7676-pkg1.run -k --kernel-name=2.6.13-test1-15.7-default_collinm_1

/usr/share/doc/nvidia/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7676-pkg1.run -kernel-name=2.6.13-test1-15.7-default_collinm_1

tried same parameters with nvidia-installer......

the problem i have is: i have 2 kernel

i install driver for kernel x, if i want to have driver for kernel y, i need to remove nvidia driver...
nvidia installer don't let me installer for the kernel y....

There appears to already be a driver installed on your system (version: 1.0-
7676). As part of installing this driver (version: 1.0-7676), the existing
driver will be uninstalled. Are you sure you want to continue? ('no' will a
bort installation) (Answer: No)
-> Installation aborted.

1.0-7676 is no longer supported. Please use 1.0-8178.

However the problem you're having is because you're using the -k option (lowercase) instead of the -K option (uppercase). The (uppercase) -K option does the following:
-K, --kernel-module-only
Install a kernel module only, and don't uninstall the
existing driver. This is intended to be used to install
kernel modules for additional kernels (in cases where you
might boot between several different kernels). To use this
option, you must already have a driver installed, and the
version of the installed driver must match the version of
this kernel module.


Thanks,
Lonni

If you're booted into 2.6.13-15.7-default but you want to build the kernel module for 2.6.13-test1-15.7-default_collinm_1 then you need to use both -K and -k.
