Unhappy SuSE 9.0 A7N8X nForce

I using SuSE 9.0 on a A7N8X mobo and had until the last kernel update no problem with installing nforce drivers. but my new kernel (from SuSE update) gives some error when using make install so does modprobe after wards. Can someone give me some guidelines. (I have same kernel and souce installed).

Ok, I have a similar problem, and recieved from the Suse support the following:

After installing and updating the kernel-source, do
download NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.tar.gz
tar xvzf NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.tar.gz
cd nforce
make
make install
install -m 644 nvnet/nvnet.o
/lib/modules/2.4.21-override-athlon/kernel/drivers/net/ install
-m 644 nvaudio/nvaudio.o /lib/modules/2.4.21-override-athlon/kernel/drivers/ depmod -a

The last four lines should be one command. But, just to warn you, it didn't work for me. Install reports, that --a is an unknown option, and I couldn't figure out why.
So, try it, when you're successful tell me, otherwise, do so 2. Maybe we can both get our network-adapter to work after this malign kernel-update.

I got it working now - just now

But thanks for you answer

And to make a long story short I had not delete my nforce folder (created by the previous nforce install) and just when right ahead with make , make install etc.

I got it working by deleting the nforce folder and untar the NVIDIA_nforce...tar.gz file again and then using Nvidia's guide.

I had also tried:
Recompiled my kernel several times (but not deleting the nforce folder) - that did not work so I went back to the original kernel (using cloneconfig).
Next move would have been a 2.6.3 kernel....

Yesssss.

Now that's funny. Installing it the way i describes it without the depmod -a command worked for me as well, but I hat to edit
/etc/modules.conf

There the alias entry in the nvidia section was commented out (?? ... there was an # at the beginning of the line). Deleted that charcter and I was fine.
But you way sounds interesting, too.
