not sure if that's the correct mandrake kernel but it should have installation instructions.

Hmm it's hard to find...
If they put the source in
/usr/doc
Mandrake were even more stupid than
I thought they are ;)

Try

this

lol, I know I have to go look for it but I don't know which one to look for and I thought the mention of kernel-2.4.22.10mdk-1 in usr/share/doc might be an indication of which kernel-source version I need to find (pardon my terminology).

rpmfind.net seems very busy

I think that the corresponding source is:
kernel-2.4.22.10mdk-1-1mdk.src.rpm

which can be downloaded from:
http://www.linuxprinting.org/till/tmp/

To double check the kernel version number you could use the following commands.
ls -l /boot
uname -r
man uname

Cheers jailbait

at that site they have:

kernel-source-2.4.22-10mdk.i586.rpm and
kernel-2.4.22.10mdk-1-1mdk.i586.rpm and
kernel-2.4.22.10mdk-1-1mdk.src.rpm

I think I'll just have them all ... ...my head hurts... ...I'm going to plant some tomatoes for an hour...

kernel-2.4.22.10mdk-1-1mdk.i586.rpm
is a binary kernel, probably the one that you have installed.

kernel-source-2.4.22-10mdk.i586.rpm and
kernel-2.4.22.10mdk-1-1mdk.src.rpm
are both source for kernels. They may be the same thing.

If you have kernel-2.4.22.10mdk-1-1 installed on your system then kernel-2.4.22.10mdk-1-1mdk.src.rpm is the corresponding source rpm.

"I think I'll just have them all"
Nothing wrong with that except it takes time to download them all. You already have the binary on your install disk.

Before you spend the time downloading the source you could double check your kernel binary version number:

ls -l /lib/modules
ls -l /boot
uname -r

Apart from being wholly confused about the kernel source problems, other than you've managed to sort it,

I was a little intrigued about your "impostor" comment, about your modem. After all, you did indicate that it was a speedtouch "pci" version. and to my knowledge, that does the "adsl thing" as well as the usb version (though to be honest, the reason that my usb one got replaced, was that I'm an impatient git, and got fed up waiting for it during reboots - hence my pci network card and solwise SAR110 (now superseded by the SAR130 - I believe) - and to lower the tone a little - it's f*****g magic ).

Sorry, a little digression there, erm the modem, you mentioned impostor, and then someone mentioned winmodem's, maybe I've lived in a complete hole in the ground (well, maybe beach), but I've never heard of an ADSL winmodem, dial up winmodem's sure, but adsl winmodem's ???

regards

John

Yeah it does okay under windows but it was just annoying me cause I couldn't get it too work with Linux. I read that someone got it to work but not with Mandrake and the explanation was beyond me:

As far as the GUI, (I suggested to use Ctrl-Alt-F1->F6 earlier to get to a konsole). If you hit Ctrl-Alt-F7 you will end up back in X with it exactly like you left it (if what I think is happening--you hit Ctrl-Alt-F1 to get to a konsole, tried to compile the nVidia drivers, etc., if it has terminated X, say so as this won't work. You can, though, try startx if it did whack X).

I'd bet that all modems, unless they hook to a serial port, are Winmodems now, especially ADSL, cable, and other broadband modulator-demodulators.

Nvidia drivers are up and running now thanks lectra . I think you're right about the modem and it's why I'll hunt down something compatible and easier all round.

If you are going to all that trouble looking for a modem - scr3w it and go for gold - get a cheapo router and be done with headaches.

You may be stuck with a dial-up modem then. About I can tell you to be sure is to make sure it hooks to your old serial port (not the USB!).

What was it? Needed to tell X to come? That happens sometimes, something I'd likely do. I'm a rookie too so I need to know what it was in case I run into it. If you do use DSL, hook in via the LAN with TCP/IP and Samba.

Hi lectraplayer

if you were asking me what the problem was with the nVidia drivers it was really just understanding the installation procedures that had me flummoxed. Once I had installed the correct kernel-source file everything went ok. (the version of 9.2 I had came without this) But I also had to learn how to use vi from the text prompt and that was a tad new and daunting pour moi
