Modprobe problem trying to install nvidia 173driver in arch


Is for my GeForce 6150 in arch last version installed successfully but when I trying to install the driver 173.14.37 I get this error
"The path to the modprode utility reported by /proc/sys/kernel/modprobe ; /sbin/modprobe differs from the path determined by nvidia-installer /usr/bin/modprobe. Please verify that /shin/modprobe works correctly and correct the path in /process/sys/kernel/modprobe if it doest work"
The things that I have tried was
# modprobe nvidia
And enter to the last path with nano and it says
/sbin/modprobe
And I don't know what to do ...help

What is the path to modprobe in your
Quote:
/proc/sys/kernel/modprobe
Mine is :
Quote:
/sbin/modprobe
which is correct as it should be ran exclusively by root.
How about symlinking /sbin/modprobe to /usr/bin/modprobe so the installer finds the command to execute?

I suppose the script is looking for runlevel command in /usr/bin and not /sbin/runlevel, so the hint I have given you before should help.
If not, attach the sh file here.
