installing driver for Mandrake 10.0 Comunity
 
Heya,

I'm trying to install the latest nvidia-driver on Mandrake community 10.0. It has kernel 2.6.3. I have the source of the kernel. I choose to compile or whatever the interface, but everytime it says "can't determine NVIDIA kernel module name". This check happens after determining where the kernel source is and some check with "CC=cc", but I have no idea what it means. Here is the log:

that the installer will need to compile a new kernel interface.

ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file

on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
driver download page at www.nvidia.com.

Does anyone know how to get get past this error?

I have a Hi-Grade laptop with a nVidia fx vid the computer runs real slow with the 2.6 kernal. I upgraded to 10.0 official from 9.2downoad. I have been useing old-linux in lilo to use the 2.4 kernal in 10.0
I reverted to 9.1 hopeing to download the module from here as I need the Flash plugin for my routers admin

There is a problem with the latest driver and mdk 2.6 kernel. It was discussed in this thread with a solution:
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=34772

Also, don't forget the kernel source prep you need to do before you even try to run the pkg installer. There is a faq all about this here:

Good luck

install kernel source
use you in yast & get latest updates
in terminal , su, password,
cd to /usr/src/linux
ln -s linux-(whatever your kernel source is)(creates symbolic link)
make cloneconfig
make prepare-all (only for kernel source >= 2.6.5-7.75)
cd to folder with nforce driver
run nforcexxxxxxxxxxxxxx.run --kernel-source-path=(path to kernel source)
This is what worked for me.
