Did a file search and found that my recent yum-update had placed 'kernel-sourcecode-0.2.6.6-1.435.2.3.noarch.hdr in /var/cache/yum/updates-released/headers, so I beleived that I might be all set to go on the Nvidia drivers install. Again, exited X-server, logged in as root and ran sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6106-pkg1.run, but here's the result:

-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you li
ke the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel f
rom the NVIDIA ftp site (ftp://download.nvidia.com
)? (Answer: Yes)
-> No matching precompiled kernel interface was found on the NVIDIA ftp site;
this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for

If you know what you are doing and want to ignore the gcc version check, sel

If you are using a Linux 2.4 kernel, please make sure
you either have configured kernel sources matching your
kernel or the correct set of kernel headers installed
on your system.
If you are using a Linux 2.6 kernel, please make sure
you have configured kernel sources matching your kernel
installed on your system.
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.
Well, I have checked /usr/src and there are NO files in it at all - completely empty. So, can anyone get me to the next base on this one?
