Default can't install Nforce drivers

When i try to install Nforce drivers on Linux, i've got error messages

First "No precompiled..., have to build it"

Then
"If you are using a linux 2.6 kernel, please make sure you have configured kernel sources matching your kernel installed on your system. If you specified a separate output directory using either the "KBUILD_OUTPUT" or the "O" KBUILD parameter, make sure to specify this directory with the SYSOUT environment variable or with the appropriate nvidia-installer command line option"


WHat's the matter, how can i fix the pb ?

aktus,
You need to install the source for the kernel you're running, or at the least the kernel headers. Which Linux distribution are you using?

aktus,
What does the output from this command look like?
rpm -qa | grep kernel

Thanks,
Lonni

aktus,
Those are not identical. If you're running kernel-2.6.8.1.12mdk-1-1mdk then you need to have kernel-source-2.6.8.1.12mdk-1-1mdk installed.

thanks,
Lonni

I'd suggest contact Mandrake's support to have them assist in installing a kernel & its corresponding source RPMs.
