Default No matching precompiled kernel interface ???

Ok ! I know this is a hot subject about the new NVIDIA driver for the OC platform.
I've really tried searching the forum about this issue, but still haven't found a "CLEAN" answer in HOWTO. I get this error when istalling; no matching precompiled kernel interface was found...... need to compile a new kernel...... and so on. The installation failes I got kernel 2.6.3-4mdk when uname -r in konsole on Mandrake 10 (community), using a Geforce2 MX200. Someone who can give me a step by step info about howto ? I'm not the only one with this problem on this board....... And finally; I'm a Linux newbie for those who didn't notice



Thanx !

Best regards
Ole

You need to install the kernel-source package.

Here's a quote from another forum (I'm not familiar with Mandrake...)
Quote:
Command:

uname -r
then
urpmi kernel-sources

That returns a list you can select from, IIRC

Hi !

Thanx for the answer, but I didn't find any packages on my system.
Then what ?
What's the name of the package I need ?

Thanx !

Go into "Install Packages". Then type "kernel" in the top as a search string. You should see the kernel source come up if it already isn't installed or if it was actually included on the Mandrake cd's. If not, google for it and just install the rpm. Like.....

rpm -ivh kernel-source.rpm (just an example) as root.

Hope that helped a bit.

Edit** - here is a link to the kernel source for Mandrake.

Hi, phorem !

That did it !!!
I finally made the driver installation and Tuxracer runs like hell now, LOL !!!!
I used "install packages" and typed "kernel" in the search string and just added "load glx" in my xf86config-4
The most cleanest and detailed answer I ever got from a Linux forum so far ;-)
I'm a newbie, remember !!!

Thanx a lot, dude !

Best regards
Ole (beginning to like Linux) ;-)
