nVidia Driver won't install because Kernel Headers are missing...Whats that me then?
 
nVidia Driver won't install because Kernel Headers are missing or something like that...Whats that me then?

I ran "sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run from the command line with no X server running it seemed to be going well but then came up with this Kernal Headers thing and to be honest totally lost me.

Also how do I change permissions so I can read AND write to my FAT32 Window/Linux storerage drive?

Thanks in adavnce

Steve

PS will I ever be as good with Linux as I am with Windows? I hope so 'cause its cool!:newbie:

What distro are you running? They may be in /usr/include or something and you might need to point the configure script to them or you may need to install the kernel source. Your disks or a mirror of your distro should have the source laying around or you could try - um, kernel.org maybe?

If it's FAT32 that's no problem - just edit fstab for 'users' and for 'rw' where it may say 'defaults' and 'ro' or something like.

I'm wondering about the same thing with Linux and DOS. :)

install kernel-source package pertaining to your kernel. Find your kernel version using
uname -r
and then look for kernel-source-number.rpm (if you have redhat based system)

Same as above but for Debian based Distro use

apt-get install kernel-source-versionnumber
