ERROR: Unable to find the kernel header files for the currently running kernel.
Please make sure you have installed the kernel header files for your
kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you have the
'kernel-source' rpm installed. If you know the correct kernel header
files are installed, you may specify the kernel include path with the
'--kernel-include-path' commandline option.
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file
'/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions
on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
driver download page at
Also I did specify to the installer what kernel I am using , the one that got updated through RHN.

I also booted into my old kernel & tried to update from there but i got the same errors.

I went manually to nVidia FTP & downloaded 2 files which are NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4363.tar.gz and NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4363.tar.gz .

The GLX file was "installed" but the kernel doesnt seem to be installing, I read it in the readme of the tar file & followed the instructions. I hope all this info was useful. I really hope to get working before I now start pulling me hair out.
