Installing Kyro II on Suse 9

Hi all,
I'm having a bit of bother with installing the Kyro II drivers on Suse 9.
I downloaded the source tgz and the src.rpm and tried the install with both. Both failed when trying to install the driver module. I get this error: -

depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.21-144-default/kernel/drivers/char/drm/powervr.o
/lib/modules/2.4.21-144-default/kernel/drivers/char/drm/powervr.o: unresolved symbol remove_proc_entry_R5c65f2d8

Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license
and it has unresolved symbols. Contact the module supplier for
assistance, only they can help you.

/lib/modules/2.4.21-144-default/kernel/drivers/char/drm/powervr.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.21-144-default/kernel/drivers/char/drm/powervr.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.21-144-default/kernel/drivers/char/drm/powervr.o: insmod powervr failed
To continue installation read /usr/share/doc/powervr-2.00.20/README

To get this far I installed the kernal sources and ran
make cloneconfig && make dep
in the kernal source directory.
Like I said, I've tried with the PowerVR source download, and I get a similar error message when running make install.
The above message I get when i try to install the rpm built from the powervr src.rpm download.
Anyone have a Kyro running on Suse9 and can Help? Or shall I just pester PowerVR to create Suse 9 rpms for the Kyro!
