precompiled kernel


Hey.. again..,

I Installed Fedora Core 2 for the second time today and the first time I did it installing the Nvidia driver was a peace of cake. Now the second time he's probing about a precompiled kernel. That I don't have fun and stuff. I updated to the latest kernel already what more can I do to make it work? Anyone got an idea? Thanks..

lets say you have kernel-2.6.10-fc3-i386 ( as your kernel package ). you will need kernel-source-2.6.10-fc3-i386 installed to build the nvidia module. wherever you got the package for the kernel look for a matching kernel-source rpm. You will not be able to build the nvidia module without it.

But isn't that standard in the installation?
I download the update from the up2date program..
Do you know where I can find the right one than?

on an rpm distro nothiing is standard with installation
go back into up2date and do a search for it. make sure the kernel sources package version matches the kernel you are using ( if your kernel is 2.6.10, make sure you get kernel-source-2.6.10).

yes but before you must have had the kernel source installed for your kernel. did you find in up2date the kernel-source-2.6.10-1.14 package? really, if you can't find that package you may have to go back to your old kernel, since we don't know what was done to the kernel to make it -1.14 ( if it is patched you can't go grab a source from www.kernel.org - it won't match your kernel). In short - you need to find the kernel-source-2.6.10-1.14 package somewhere....

kernel-2.6.10-1.14_FC2

Maybe the first one is the old one?
