You need your kernel-source installed, the nvidia driver needs this to compile the driver module.

the kernel should be on your cd. just make sure you install the right one.

since you updated your kernel you need the updated kernel source

if you run up2date check and see if there is a package called kernel-source and see if thats available. if so just use that to get it. Otherwise go to ftp://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub...updates/1/i386 and then get the kernel source from there. you can just double click on it to install it with the redhat package manager. Then you can install the nvidia drivers. Best of luck.

You are using the Fedora Core and I believe, that yum is installed by default. If so, open a terminal and type su, then your password for ROOT. Then just type:

yum install kernel-source

then if it asks you if you want to install you press y and it will do the rest..

Then you have to go through the Nvidia installer again.

I am quite knowledgeable about compiling kernel modules myself... but the fact is, Fedora kernel 2.4.22-1.2188.nptl does not work with NVidia driver 5336. After I had compiled the driver and loaded the module into the kernel, I started X - and got a black screen and a kernel oops.
