Default kernel-header.rpm

I am trying to run NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4363.run in Redhat9 2.4.20-18.9 and I get an error telling me to install kernel-header.rpm

From what I can tell, the newer kernels in Redhat dont have a header rpm.

Is there some other way I can get my GeForce2 MX400 64mb card to work in RH9

At the moment I can only get it to work if I use a generic S3 driver and it looks crap.

Ok, I have also just spent the last couple of hours trying different ../include paths and i still have no luck.

I bought nVidia because Linux Format reconned they were easy to configure in Linux boxes.

I guess Im just a hopeless newbie...

What you are looking for is the kernel-source package that is included with the distro. If you upgraded your kernel through the redhat updates, then you need to make sure the update also downloads and installs the new kernel-devel package to match your new kernel.

You can verify if its installed with the command:
rpm -qa | grep kernel

and you will see a listing of all kernel related packages you have installed, kernel-source for the kernel you are RUNNING right now must be there.
check running kernel with:
cat /proc/version

look for an rpm on your first cd (i think) called kernel-source.<numbers here>.rpm then install that with:
rpm -ivh kernel-source.<numbers>.rpm

<edit> I actually read what you said.. silly me, and you have upgraded the kernel, just make sure the newer kernel-source package is present.
