Yeah, this error has been covered in this forum before. Check the following thread:
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=34772

And don't forget, there is more to prepping your kernel-source than just installing the rpm. Check the faq here:
http://www.speculation.org/garrick/faqs.html

good luck

Re: Problem with installing drivers on Mandrake 10 / help plz
 
This has been asked on this forum at least a dozen times and it has at least 3 different solutions (patch, copying the .config from /boot, and --add-this-kernel).

I found out the easiest solution was to run the installer with "NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6111-pkg1.run --add-this-kernel" and when it stops, then run it again with just "NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6111-pkg1.run". Now it installs just fine.

If the latest 6111-driver still won't install, perhaps it might be easier to just install older drivers, like 6106 or 5336. No problems with them on Mandrake 10.
