But is it not the clue here that my maskine having trouble with two
drivers consistant, and not knowing who to choose for the kernel? And
the fact that my kernel has "rivafb" built as a static part of it and
not a module. That would make a conflikt when the two at the same time
is running and trying to conekt to my card, a NVidia GeForce 2 GTS, as
whould be when "rivafb" is the old kernelpart to suport my kard, and I
am forcing my pc to use the new "nvidia" module.
I am still asking for anyone knowing a way to get my "rivafb" part of my
