Default 2.4.20-28.8smp kernel and nvidia

Hi,

I recently upgraded a couple systems to dual Xeon processors and instaled kerenl 2.4.20-28.8smp. Both processors show up fine. However X will not start and I get the errors Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module!
modprobe nvidia returns modprobe: Can't locate module nvidia
If I boot to the older kernel without SMP (2.4.20-24.8) X comes up fine.

Is there a Nvidia driver for this kernel? 2.4.20-28.8smp

Thank You for any help.

Did you (re-)install the NVIDIA driver after booting the new kernel or did you add a kernel module for 2.4.20-28.8smp to an existing NVIDIA driver installation (see the -K `nvidia-installer` option)?

What I did was add kernel 2.4.20-28.8smp to the existing setup. I have not tried to update the NVIDIA drivers as I have not found one for smp. (if there is such a thang).

I am having the exact same problem - Dual Xeon, kernel 2.4.20-8smp (red hat 9), and it works fine with the non-SMP kernel. I installed the driver under both kernels (uninstalling the previous installation each time).

Is there a fix for this yet?
