nVIDIA driver & Mandrake 9.2
I recently installed Mandrake 9.2 RC1 for AMD64 and it's all running fine so I was about to install the nvidia driver for my GF4 MX.
I downloaded and installed the kernelsource and also downloaded nvidia glx and nvidia kernel. nvidia glx compiles fine but I can't figure out how to compile the nvidia kernel. It gives an error telling me what to do but I have no idea on how to perform those actions.
Anyone care to tell me what to do?

I can't tell you how to use the mandrakeclub nvidia rpms, but all I had to do was this:

Install the relevant kernel. Get the kernel source.
Install NVIDIA's driver (from www.nvidia.com)

follow the instructions in the readme - mainly:
go to a text console
login as root
init 3 (stop the GUI)
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5328-pkg1.run
fillow instructions
reconfigure /etc/X11/XF86Config-4
init 5 (start the GUI)


Each time you change kernel, you'll need to re-run this.
It may be worth printing the readme before you start.
Save your old XF86Config-4 (and your new one - if you run the mandrake X config tool again, you'll overwrite it.
I did this on a P4 - it should be fine on an AMD - but I have no actual knowledge.
Remember, when you add a kernel using urpmi, it will end up as an option in /etc/lilo.conf, but you'll have to run lilo to get it to appear in the boot menu. If you want it to be default, edit /etc/lilo.conf

the reason I use these tarballs is that it's the only driver for AMD64 platform. So using the .run file isn't an option.
