load.  What is wrong?


The kernel interface layer of the NVIDIA kernel module must be

compiled specifically for the configuration and version of your kernel.

If you upgrade your kernel, then the simplest solution is to reinstall

the driver.
 

ADVANCED: You can install the NVIDIA kernel module for a non

running kernel (for example: in the situation where you just built

and installed a new kernel, but have not rebooted yet) with a command

line such as this:
 

  sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1.run --kernel-name='KERNEL_NAME'
 

Where 'KERNEL_NAME' is what `uname -r` would report if the target

kernel were running.
