Try booting from the CD again and do an upgrade. When you get to the point of choosing applications, tell the upgrade that you want to select individual packages. I can't remember exactly where it is, but there is a option to install the kernel headers and kernel source. The NVidia drivers generally like those.

If I had to take a couple of guesses as to where the kernel headers and source are, I would guess in the development, system, or kenel areas of packages.

I think the rpm you are trying to install are not matching your

kernel.2.4.8-26 may be the kernel from mdk 8.1 or 8.2.

Try to check this out.

Or go to the graphics forum and look at the post how to install
from tar.gz.

"kernel = 2.4.8-26mdk is needed by NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.mdk81up" WTF is that all about ??? if i go into the control Center it tells me i have 2.4.19-16mdk "
Yep now I get it:"mdk81up" -your are using rpms for mdk 8.1 as I thought
before so there is no need to quit now.
I should have read it a little more carefully before.
Just try again with rpms for your distribution and it should work.

Did you try to use earlier nVidia drivers? Like the 3087 drivers was it? The ones before the 4191 ones.

@tuxracer, I misread your post wrong I should have thought you used that transgaming app. I dont have much reason to pay for something like that because I can still boot into my Win2k partition and play games there If I was completely on Linux, I would definately use transgaming's app though.

@Mandarb1

You dont have to pay for WineX,but I just want to test the rpms.

For me Linux works pretty well with gaming even at Lan-Partys.

I was at Quakecon this summer and believe me I did it with RedHat 7.3

only.

I am working on a linux gaming PC and with WineX I get some extra

games.

And Linux with WineX is a lot cheaper than any Windows,isnt it?

By the way,
I agree:never ever use the newest drivers.

hehe yeah WineX is much cheaper Im thinking about trying it though to play with it and mess around. But, I have yet to make a fake windows on my linux partition and I dont really want to use my windows partition for WineX. My friend did get Wine up and running and uses Trillian and he says that Wine doesnt really touch much of the Windows directory and he didnt create a fake windows drive. He just used one of the scripts for Wine. I might try to get it working though. But Im going to be pretty busy until next summer and wont have time to work on my computer I would do it now, but my time until then is limited...

For what, exactly?

For most Loki ports like Tribes 2, you must buy the Linux version. However, for games like Unreal Tournament and Unreal Tournament 2003, there are installers available for downlaod for Linux. You use the "Windows" CDs to install the game. Same goes for Quake 3. Download the point release and copy the pak0.pak file from the CD. The NeverWinter Nights port will also be done with an installer for Linux.

Excellent. Well I used the term "Windows" because if I remember correctly, the installer was InstallShield and that wouldnt work in Linux. Although there is a program over at frankscorner.com that extracts the cab files..... but if they are .pak files, then it should work out with a simple Linux installer from the Windows cds. Its been awhile since i've looked at the NWN stuff though...
