It works though when I reboot. I don't need to reinstall. Should I go ahead and run what you suggested? If it won't hurt anything I'll give it a shot.




Neal,

It is possible that the changes you made by copying the .ko file has
changed the underlying behavior, which is not a bad thing.

I do not believe that by running the two commands you will hurt
anything.

However, if you are not having trouble during a re-boot, which is the
key symptom of the udev problem, you may not need to. In other words, if
it ain't broke, don't fix it.

You might want to run:

$ ls -l /etc/udev/devices

and see what you get. If it is something like:

$ ls -l /etc/udev/devices
crw-rw-rw-  1 root root 195,   0 Apr 11 17:01 nvidia0
crw-rw-rw-  1 root root 195,   1 Apr 11 17:01 nvidia1
crw-rw-rw-  1 root root 195,   2 Apr 11 17:01 nvidia2
crw-rw-rw-  1 root root 195,   3 Apr 11 17:01 nvidia3
crw-rw-rw-  1 root root 195,   4 Apr 11 17:01 nvidia4
crw-rw-rw-  1 root root 195,   5 Apr 11 17:01 nvidia5
crw-rw-rw-  1 root root 195,   6 Apr 11 17:01 nvidia6
crw-rw-rw-  1 root root 195,   7 Apr 11 17:01 nvidia7
crw-rw-rw-  1 root root 195, 255 Apr 11 17:01 nvidiactl

Then you are probably OK as is. The dates of these files correspond to
my last kernel upgrade and re-run of the nVidia installer.

HTH,

Marc

Neal,

There are "extra" files there (nvidia8 - nvidia15) which is curious and
the permissions on those files are wrong. It may be a result of the
various things that have been done OR it may also very well be the
result of the particular nVidia card you are using which perhaps
requires the additional files.

I went back through the thread and unless I missed it, I did not see
mention of which card you have. I have the GeForce FX Go 5200, on a Dell
laptop.

Try to run:

ls -l /dev/nv*

and see what output you get there.

At this point, I think that I would in fact recommend that you run the
two udev related commands, just to be sure. That will also solve the
permission issues.

What two commands are they?
