Can't install driver
I had been posting about beryl freeze before.
I tried reinstalling the whole linux, this time Fedora Core 6 32-bit instead of 64-bit (as I had troubles with using 32-bits on 64-bit system).
Now I can't install 9746 driver.
It was giving me that kernel-devel couldn't be found.
But I confirmed that I had it with rpm -q kernel-devel.
I have kernel-devel-something-2.18-1.2868.fc6 something like this (newest one on the update list)
So I ran sh NVIDIA-something.run --kernel-source-path=/usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-1.2868.fc6-i586.
I got through the kernel-devel checking part, but now I am getting an error with building kernel module about "unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'... etc"
I am not using SMP or XEN kernel.
What should I do?

Re: Can't install driver
For assistance with the RPM packages, please contact the package maintainer. For the installation failure with the .run package, please attach the complete /var/log/nvidia-installer.log file (see http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=46678); based on the information you provided, however, it looks like you don't have the correct kernel development files installed (otherwise, you wouldn't need to use --kernel-source-path).
