Default problems installing on a mandrake 9.2 system !

Hi !
Does someone here know what's wrong when the installer says i either
have the wrong source path or the wrong version of the headerfiles and
as far as i can check it, it is the right path and version files. according
to uname -r and the name of the rpm pakage. What do i do now ?
I have tried both the 4496 and the 4363 i think that points towards
my machine or mandrake 9.2 ! any ideas ?

Regards Kjell

Mandrake screwed up and didn't include the kernel-source rpm with the download edition ISOs. If you installed from downloaded iso files and burned your own cds, you have to find a mandrake Contrib site and get the kernel source. Make SURE it matches your running kernel. Mandrake issued a new kernel-source package that's on the ftp mirrors that DOESN'T match your kernel. All mirrors should have both. To check which kernel you're running (should be -10) run uname -r and write that down. Go get that kernel-source rpm, install it, and run the driver installer again. Should work fine.

But i have installed the source twice and i get the same results!
the kernel is -10 ( uname -r) and the source is -10 but it doesn't work !

i run the installation programm on my mandrake 9.2 system without problems. i installed the kernel-source via "urpmi kernel-source" and didn't bother which sources were installed.

after installing the nvidia drivers i checked the kernel-souces and realized they didn't match the running kernel.

[root@laptop schelli]# rpm -qa|grep kernel
kernel-source-2.4.22-21mdk
kernel-2.4.22.10mdk-1-1mdk

the nvidia installer run without problems, but the screen is not centered and i can scroll off-screen (see http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...threadid=22615 and help if you can:-)). but probably this error occurs because of the mismatching sources?!

:-(
