Hi all,

Stupid me. Made the mistake of yum update again. Never works without breaking. Anyway, same ole problem. nvidia module won't load. I did the usual below and then I tried to yum remove and yum install the nvidia drivers but they don't exist. I think I still need the 9631 drivers since my card is integrated on the mobo. Here is a ton of info. Last time I fixed this by creating a symlink to the driver using a different extension but that didn't work this time...

Please help!
Thanks,
Eric

Error:
(II) LoadModule: "nvidia"
(WW) Warning, couldn't open module nvidia
(II) UnloadModule: "nvidia"
(EE) Failed to load module "nvidia" (module does not exist, 0)

I fixed this the last time by making a link with a .so extension pointing to the .o extension. Not working anymore.

Here are the module folders
