You need to install the source for this kernel. You may already have a kernel source installed, but it may not match the kernel you are running (as it should!). You can install your kernel source through MCC - Install software - Search for "source" and install "kernel-source-188.8.131.52-12mdk". That should do it for you.
I went into my Mandrake control center, uninstalled the kernel-source 184.108.40.206-24mdk. I then went to the INSTALL in the Mandrake control center and *POOF*, I could now install the kernel-source 220.127.116.11-12mdk. I installed it, reinstalled my ATI drivers, and now I am successfully running the new driver version in X.org 6.8!
It gives me this:
[ken@ken ken]$ uname -r
It turns out that I do have my kernel sources installed, but it's this:
Does that matter that I'm using kernel 18.104.22.168-12, but I have kernel-source 22.214.171.124-24? I originally did install my kernel-source 126.96.36.199-12mdk, but Mandrake had an update and they updated my kernel-source to 188.8.131.52-24mdk, and now I cannot find kernel-source 184.108.40.206-12mdk anymore in the Mandrake Control Center. Should I remove kernel-source 220.127.116.11-24??
I searched for kernel-source and found this that matched my version instead:
Should I installed this "stripped" version???
