Problem with Nvidia driver Installation


Hello i'm trying to install NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-2.0-8762-pkg2.run and i get an error message that says that i need to install the kelnel source Rpm.
It is also saying that cannot find "lib/modules/2.6.13-15-default/build/include/linux/kernel.h"
1.I use suse 10 64 bit distro (1 dvd if it's helpfull)
2.I have only lib/modules/2.6.13-15-default/build in my path
3.i have found only kernel.h and after making path lib/modules/2.6.13-15-default/build/include/linux i copyed it in there but the thing that changed is that the error message changed to : cannot find "lib/modules/2.6.13-15-default/build"
+ cannot find "--kernel - source "Rpm
What should i do???

P.S Is there a way to search in linuxquestions.org not manually for specific namethreads???


Thank you for reading this....

follow the Nvidia sujestions and use YaST to install them. do not use the .run when you have SuSe.

As for installing the .run vs YaST you need to install the linux-headers-xxxx via yast.

they should be on the CD/DVD or the extras CD. YOU/YaST should still be able to read the headers off of the CD.

good luck
