nvidia driver question


Ok so when i change the line "nv" to the line "nvidia" and type startx i get this:

(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module!
(EE) NVIDIA(0): ***Aborting***
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

I assume that this means my kernel has no nvidia module compiled...and so i wanted to know (if that was it), what module it is....for the next compile i make...thx!

If you ran nvidia's installer, the module should have been installed with it. Try
Code:
ls /lib/modules/`uname -r`/video/nvidia.ko
, and if it's there, be sure to "modprobe nvidia".

You're welcome, and by using "alsactl store" ("man alsactl" for more).
