can't map registers
I've had this problem since the 2960 version drivers.. I've been living in no 3D linux world running the default "nv" driver that comes with XFree86. I just downloaded and installed 4191 in hopes the issue had been solved..
I'm running XFree86 v4.2.0
The problem exists with any driver version from 2960+ and incudes 4191..
I downloaded, compiled and installed the kernel module.. It does insert into the kernel when I insmod it.. It is the correct driver being inserted:

When I try to start X with the nvidia driver I get:

Ok I figured it out finally.. In the kernel I had enabled the riva framebuffer device support and this had apparently been interfering with the nvidia kernel module's ability to take over control of the card.. I recompiled the kernel without this support and she works great now..
Nvidia should note this incompatibility in the linux installation instructions to avoid this issue effecting others in the future.
