lucky one..

a had that 'problem' with rivafb too.. i removed it from kernel.. really dont need it.

well, all that stuff about yast and installing kernel sources is nice, but my debian
isnt really using yast and i dont think it ever will
i have my kernel sources unpacked in /usr/src/linux (default path that nvidia-installer uses)
and the installer says that he cant find that sources. i had also tried to pointed him there
(--kernel-source-path=/usr/src/linux) with no success :/

do a search for "kernel.h" and look where it comes up, thats what it is looking for. although i didn't have the latest up 2 date source, i figured out that it was my problem and took care of it within 5 min..

Sorry, my dial-up was down for a few days (stop laughing!)... I couldn't post a reply. I did get the driver working properly now, thanks to everyone for their help. it turned out that I was overlooking the "cp -a /dev/nvidia* /etc/udev/devices" command.
