in your red hat cd of course.. look for kernel sources with rpmdrake
or download it at redhat.com (150 mb)

Make sure they are the very same version numbers-wise (don't worry about the architecture. Although there are i386, i586, i686 and athlon kernels, the sources are released in the generic i386 version.)

If your kernel is 2.4.20-10, make sure you have the 2.4.20-10 kernel-sources.

Hi, thanks to answer me. I found in my CD of Redhat a lot of file with "Kernel...", but i don have eny file with "Kernel-sorce" or any similar.
What is the name of file.

Thanks.

Sebastian

The kernel-source doesn't necessarily belongs to the same disk where the rest of the kernels are located. RH 8 has 3 disks. Have you looked in all of them?

I download from redhat the Kernel-source. How could i compile with the property for nvidia tv-ou ??

If it's an rpm file just install it with (as root):

rpm -ivh kernel-source-version.rpm

Make sure it's the very same version of your running kernel.

Try reinstalling the nvidia drivers. They will do the rest of the work for you.

I tried to install again the nvidia drivers (NVIDIA_Kernel-1.0-4180), but dont work. See the file attach.

Thanks.

Apparently, you are using an old driver (41.80). Bear in mind that newer kernels are more compatible with current distros.
Get the latest at www.nvidia.com

¿Y sí revisaste que tu kernel fuera de la misma versión que las fuentes?
