Default kernel interface

Hello,
I am new to linux
I am trying to install NVIDIA driver on Fedora core 5 (on AMD 64) using the command

sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8774-pkg2.run

The user interface starts. It says there is no precompiled kernel interface. Then it tries to install one. But it could not find kernel source.

I have installed the following rpm
kernel-2.6.17-1.2157_FC5.src.rpm
kernel-2.6.17-1.2187_FC5.src.rpm

After that I tried many sets of instruction from net but nothing seems to work.

I tried using
sh --ectract-only NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8774-pkg2.run
sh -ectract-only NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8774-pkg2.run
sh -ectractonly NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8774-pkg2.run

but it gives error "invalid options"

I had installed
binutils-2.17

I still get error "invalid options"

Please let me know if any body has any solution.
Regards,
Ravi Shankar Gautam

Default Re: kernel interface

You need to install the kernel-devel package(s) matching your kernel(s); to extract the .run package, you'll need to use the --extract-only option (run it with --help for more information). Please also see http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=72490.
