Default Need a lttle help with 2.6.

Ok, I've got most things up and running but nvidia drivers, the problem I have is that the nvidia installer dont see the 2.6 kernel source.

I downloaded the full source version from kernel.org, do I have to point the nvidia installer to it or something and how?

Thanks

I've got them but it's saying that my kernel source is not configured correctly, modversion.h??

The installers available from the URL above do not test for modversions.h .

Yes you may have to point the nVidia installer at the kernel source - specifically the kernel includes. The -A option gives help about this. Normally this shouldn't be a problem because the kernel image "remembers" where it was compiled from.
