I am not sure if this has been posted before, but if it has, I am sorry!
Ok. I am running Mandriva Powerpack 2006.0, and have an Nvidia chipset videocard.
I want to install the latest, updated drivers for it, but seem to be having all sorts of troubles.
I manage to bypass booting to x (by setting default runlevel to 3, and then back again to 5 when finished) and thats cool. I manage to get to the location where I downloaded the file to, and run the shell script, but, after a while, it tells me that it is missing some files.
It mentions kernel.h and kernel-source RPM's, and goes no further with the installation.
I am as confused as all hell about this, and not quite sure where to go from there.
Just to go a bit further into this, I recently (as in yesterday/day before) updated my entire installation (all 800mb+) worth of updates, so I am assuming that part of that would have been the kernel source packages (as I saw them ticked in the list of updates to be installed).
Should I try and persevere with this method of installation, or should I resort to editing the conf file manually with the instructions that come in the README package (from NVIDIA)??
I am hoping you are able to help. Thanks in advance!!!
