Question NVIDIA GEFORCE4 MX440 and MANDRAKE 9.1


i ran Nvidia's nview, It told me to download specific RPM'S, When i run the Kernel RPM, It says already installed, Wehn i try the NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4191.i386.rpm it says signature error, I downloaded this 4 times, it asks install anyway, i say yes, then it says Nvidia Kernel Needed?? Can anyone specifically tell me how to resolve this issue...I am a newbie and would truly appreciate it

I also have that graphics card, when i used to run mandrake 9.1 it worked fine.
Just search the fourm for nvidia driver tutorials and install them as the guide will tell you.

Get both the rpms in the same directory, then open a terminal, su to root, and type in the command urpmi NVIDIA*.rpm Hopefully, that will sort it out for you.
