Yes that's the problem. Don't know much about Redhat type stuff unfortunately, but with Debian you'd be looking at installing the 'linux-headers-*' package, the * indicating the thing for your kernel. For example: linux-headers-2.6-amd64 - Header files for Linux 2.6-amd64. So try to work out the equivalent for your Redhat thing.

Fingers crossed that might get it to work; it's always a bit of a bugger but usually works eventually.

Incidentally do you have the kernel source installed? Not saying this is necessary. It'll be in /usr/src or /usr/local/src probably. It will need to be configured if the installer is to use it. If it's installed in an unusual place you may have to tell the nvidia installer, like it says.

how can i solve the problem now????

Code:
uname -a
My result is:
Code:
[user1@MyServer ~]$ uname -a
Linux MyServer 2.6.24.7-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-2.6.24.7-3mnb
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.

Putting kernel-server-devel-2.6.31.5-1mnb into Google gives a load of *.rpm things, borrowing from Davno. Very upmarket setup.

I'm not familiar with Mandriva, but it may be an idea to go to the package manager and make sure that you have Compiz installed. Try searching for ccsm (or Simple Compiz Config Settings).
