Default Problem installing 8762 in mandriva 2006 after kernel update

After installing kernel 2.6.12-22mdksmp I tried to reinstall the 8762 drivers but it returned an error. The problem seems to be here:
Code:
-> Kernel module compilation complete.
ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'.  This happens most
       frequently when this kernel module was built against the wrong or
       improperly configured kernel sources, with a version of gcc that differs
       from the one used to build the target kernel, or if a driver such as
       rivafb/nvidiafb is present and prevents the NVIDIA kernel module from
       obtaining ownership of the NVIDIA graphics device(s).
       
       Please see the log entries 'Kernel module load error' and 'Kernel
       messages' at the end of the file '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for
       more information.
-> Kernel module load error: insmod: error inserting './usr/src/nv/nvidia.ko':
   -1 Invalid module format
and a few lines later ...

Code:
nvidia: version magic '2.6.12-22mdksmp SMP 686 gcc-4.0' should be
   '2.6.12-12mdksmp SMP 686 gcc-4.0'
I am new to linux so I don't even fully understand what's this error about. Any help would be appreciated.

The problem is that the kernel development files you built the NVIDIA installer against have a different version (2.6.12-22mdksmp) than the kernel you're using (2.6.12-12mdksmp). You'll need to either downgrade the development package or update the kernel.
