how can i solve the problem now????
My result is:
[user1@MyServer ~]$ uname -a
Linux MyServer 188.8.131.52-desktop-3mnb
Then go in Mandriva control center look up for the same kernel and install the kernel devel with the same number.
example in my case: kernel-desktop-devel-184.108.40.206-3mnb
After installing a program, i always type ldconfig as root.
Remember you need to install your driver out of your graphical interface.
After you have installed the proper kernel-devel for your kernel, try your nvidia driver installer again (just answer yes to all question on install). After the driver installation, it might ask you if you want xorg.conf to be modified automatically (says yes), if it does not ask, you will have to modify xorg.conf yourself. Usually just change the entry (nv) for (nvidia) will be sufficient.
