unable to determine the nvidia kernel module filename
 
I'm running on Mandrake 10 kernel 2.6.3-4mdk

When the installer tries to compile the nvidia module I get the following error:
unable to determine the nvidia kernel module filename

I've installed the kernel-source-2.6.3-4mdk.rpm and tried
./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run --kernel-source-path=/usr/src/linux and still doesn't work (althought the symbolic link /usr/src/linux is ok)

I'm getting totaly mad about that....
If someone had the same problem...

Dude, I think you forgot the kernel source HEADERS

can you tell me how the HEADER file/rpm for the kernel is called? don't find it for my kernel ( 2.6.6rc2)
thanks Chris

@ Chris: If you're running 2.6.6rc2, chances are that you already have the sources somewhere. Try /usr/src/linux, and check /usr/src/linux/Makefile (it should advertise the kernel version somewhere at the top of the file), or, if you have that, /usr/src/linux/include/linux/version.h, the kernel version is in there too.

(@ ypikai: check this forum, there is plenty of stuff about installing the Nvidia driver and Mandrake 10. Your problem is that you apparently do not have the kernel sources installed.)
