Unable to load kernel module nvidia-o


still trying to bring SuSE 9 to life. After installation I downloaded kernel_source from Yast and then tried to install nvidia5336 driver. I get an error that says "Unable to load kernel module nvidia-o. Most likely because the kernel module was built using the wrong kernel source files."

I'm computer literate but finding that i'm pretty dumb when it comes to linux as i have no idea how to fix this and haven't had much luck in my searches. This is just one of a few issues i'm trying to resolve before my wife makes me go back to the windows world...

would appreciate any help available... thanx, matt

Click online update.. and click "INSTALL NVIDIA DRIVER..." and you'd have had this done a while ago? It even asks you if you want to install while your installing the system for the first time.

I actually tried that, I get an error that says "Error installing patch "fetchnvidia". In the details it says "ERROR(You:Prescript failed.) /var/lib/YaST2/you/scripts/fetchnvidia".

I'm having the same issue. Anyone know a way around this fetchnvidia failure? Is it a permissions thing?
