I get this too with nvidia drivers...it seems that nvidia won't setup
the system so kerneld will load the module itself if rivafb is
present.  Apparently rivafb conflicts with nvidia, so if the rivafb
module is present for your kernel (doesn't even need to be loaded),
the nvidia installer won't setup the loading of its own module.  I'm
pretty sure you can just edit the scripts yourself to make sure
kerneld loads it on boot, and it should work then.

er well, not kerneld per se since it's gone in 2.6 :)  But you should
be able to just add it to /etc/modprobe.conf and have it work.

As Chris said, you should make sure the module is installed by
