OK so I am ready to just reload this pc. I don't have such a directory and I
can't find the kernel sources on the suse cds for my exact kernel.
The directories available are:
chadlap:/usr/src # l
total 32
drwxr-xr-x 8 root root 4096 Oct 14 09:20 ./
drwxr-xr-x 12 root root 4096 Oct 8 09:47 ../
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Oct 14 06:34 ATI/
drwxr-xr-x 22 root root 4096 Oct 8 14:30 kernel-modules/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 17 Oct 12 17:39 linux -> linux-2.6.5-7.108/
drwxr-xr-x 20 root root 4096 Oct 14 07:36 linux-2.6.5-7.108/
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Oct 12 17:38 linux-2.6.5-7.108-obj/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 21 Oct 12 17:39 linux-obj -> linux-2.6.5-7.108-obj/
drwxr-xr-x 7 root root 4096 Oct 8 09:50 packages/
chadlap:/usr/src #
and my kernel is:
chadlap:/usr/src # uname -r
2.6.5-7.108-default
chadlap:/usr/src #

What really blows my mind is the fact that it was working, before so that
means that the
/lib/modules/2.6.5-7.108-default directory was there before? so where did it
go after my update.
The update did say it was going to do some kernel patching,
Could that be what broke the drivers ?
I didn't think a kernel patch would do this!

Is there one more thing I try?
