this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for
your kernel.

because the kernel module was built using the wrong kernel header files.
Please make sure you have installed the kernel header files for your
kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you have the
'kernel-source' rpm installed. If you know the correct kernel header
files are installed, you may specify the kernel include path with the
'--kernel-include-path' commandline option.

ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file
'/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions
on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
driver download page at www.nvidia.com.

--------------------------------
any ideas? please tell me.. i know i have the correct linux source file installed, maybe it's a linux header problem, but i dont know how to fix that.. someone help me please. thanks

Are you in X if yes, you must exit X before installing the drivers.

Are you in init 3????? If so my understanding is that it is a loadable module already. Try loading it as a module your self. using the insmod command and that module name. If that doesn't work post what it says there. Yes I saw it tried to do it but if you manually try to do it maybe the result will spit out something different.

Type: init 3
if your not.

Btw I have the same OS as you and the header files are in the system.

/usr/src/linux-2.4******** under there. I just don't know specifically. If you still.

The command is.

$insmod (module.o)

Try that and tell me what happens. If you are not root jump into root using the following command.

$su -

If that works you will have to at that to the rc.sysinit file.

Good call with that link I don't know whether its setup or not but that post that this is linked to should be stickied if there is a way.
