[SOLVED] 2 different modules of the same name..
Not sure if this is the right forum.
I have been happily using the Distro supplied Nvidia drivers and then had to switch to the latest off their site because I upgraded my card to the 8800GT.
So tried removing the distro's through package managed, then installed Nvidia's supplied, then went back to my old card for a bit, so put the package back in and tried to manually remove the Nvidia .run installed files and now back to the Nividia one.
Now when I boot, X fails to log, logs say Nvidia kernel module was the problem. So I manually rmmod Nividia ; modprobe nvidia and restart kdm and its all working.
So do I have 2 nvidia modules, the first one loading being the distro supplied one, hence X wont start cause Card is not supported by it and then when I manually load it, it loads the latest Nvidia supplied one ?
Thanks for reading.
