**Intention** to play world of warcraft and secondlife.
PS. I love WINE - wow installed running at 3 fps "without gfx running at anything like a decent speed."

you like the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for
your kernel from the NVIDIA ftp site (ftp://download.nvidia.com)?
(Answer: Yes)
-> No matching precompiled kernel interface was found on the NVIDIA ftp
site; this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel
interface for your kernel.

kernel. Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for
your kernel and that they are properly configured; on Red Hat Linux
systems, for example, be sure you have the 'kernel-source' or
'kernel-devel' RPM installed. If you know the correct kernel source
files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the
'--kernel-source-path' command line option.

ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file

on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
driver download page at www.nvidia.com.
================================================== ==============

now i've installed kernel-devel kernel-source gcc cpp glibc.
it still doesnt work

to install I log off. ctrl alt F1 and run /sbin/init 3 to kill all x and GUIs.

can someone please send me a miricle command to get this fixed. I'm so flipping close to winning it's unreal!

Never managed this with redhat 9 either. i quit at this point and reverted to MS....I really wanna stay in a Tux ;-)

Wrong forum buddy. There is an nVidia Linux forum for stuff like this. You probably wont get much help with this thread being here. Maybe a mod can move it for you.

Evil_ghost and Grey_1 are both pros with Linux. Grey is currently on vacation for a bit with his wife- but Evil_ghost is around still. Maybe PM him with your problem if a mod doesn't move this to the right forum.

Tell me what you've got in /usr/src by typing ls -la /usr/src at the command line.

When you type rpm -qa|grep -i kernel-devel what is returned?
