Hi

If i try to load the Nvdriver module i get this error:

/lib/modules/2.4.18-bf2.4/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver: unresolved symbol devfs_unregister_chrdev_R77f3e0ce
/lib/modules/2.4.18-bf2.4/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver: unresolved symbol devfs_register_R00f32adf

Hi,
I'm not using devfs but I might be able to help. If you compiled these from source did you compile against your current kernel headers and source tree? If you downloaded the rpms and used alien I would go back and get the tarballs and go from there.
Or you could stop using devfs... *cough* :-P
