Default Mandrake 10.1 Community NVIDIA Problems

I'm having some problems installing the currentl nvidia driver for my FX 5200. Below is the error output i'm getting

I am having the same problem.

I used the --extract-only option then changed the reference of PM_SAVE_STATE to PM_SUSPEND_MEM in usr/src/nv/nv.c

It installed but still didn't work - ie 'no screens found'

Any ideas ?

Had the same problem, the solution I found is the following:

Check /etc/modprobe.preload if it contais nvidia.
Also check /etc/modprobe.conf if it contais alias char-major-195* nvidia.
If one is missing enter it into the file.

Greetings,
Kai
