is telinit 3 the same as init 3?
previous to the SuSE 9.1, I had some trouble that was solved with this
post.... sorry didn't save who wrote this, but credit is due.
<quoting someone else>
I was having the same problems, and here is what i did "
1) make cloneconfig
2) export MAKEFLAGS=O=/usr/src/linux-obj/$ARCH/$FLAVOR
3) sh <nviddia>.run --kernel-source-path=/usr/src/linux
and all went fine.
The MAKEFLAGS also allowed me to build the vmware modules. Make just needs
to know where to find the scripts it needs. This information is located in
the README.SUSE file in the /usr/src/linux directory, i believe.
I then read /usr/src/linux/README.SUSE and discovered a package I had not
known about: kernel-syms. With kernel-syms installed, it is not necessary to
use Step 1) to install 1.0-6106.
After installing kernel-syms-2.6.5-7.95, I logged in as root, changed to
runlevel 3, changed directory to where I had downloaded the nVIDIA installer
. ./makeflags-SUSE.README.sh, containing the line:
export MAKEFLAGS= \
"-C /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build O=/lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build"
The install worked.

I ended up writing a couple scripts to do the job for me, they are as follows
(note: I don't do this anymore since SuSE 9.1, I can just do what was already
mentioned here, also, you need to change the driver version or add a param
. ./makeflags.sh default
sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-6111-pkg2.run --kernel-source-path=/usr/src/linux
export MAKEFLAGS="O=/usr/src/linux-obj/`uname -i`/$1"
so, back then I just typed
