Default Re: NVIDA drivers and Mandrake 10 Kernel 2.6

I have tried everything you have mentioned but still keep getting an error. I have kernel 2.6.3.9 and everything matches when I run uname -r. I have attached the nvidia installer log. Please help, thank you

this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for

your kernel.

ERROR: Unable to determine the NVIDIA kernel module filename.
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file
I am by no means an expert on this but this was the error I was getting and I solved it by making sure my kernel souce was the same as my installed kernel. Other than that...I can't be much help . Hopefully, someone else on this forum can help.

Later

Ya, I saw that everyones seemed to work once everything matched up so I made sure mine did, and everything I tried comes up and says 2.6.3-9 but I still keep getting the same error.

I just have to say that checking if the source and the kernel match saved my arse.. Now on booting I see the lovely Nvidia Logo!!!

Yippie Kai Yeah!

I use Mandrake 10, and I just wanted to say thanks for the people in this thread.

Installed the kernel source from CD3 (it then asked for CD 2 and 1 afterwards).
Dropped out of X and ran the NVIDIA driver install. I got the kernel error, but the installer was able to compile the drivers after it found the source. Edited my XF86Config-4 file and went back into X and noticed a beautiful NVIDIA logo.

Now my next task.. installing WineX 3.3.1...
