I have mandrake 8.1 but wanted to update my kernel to 2.4.18 for video reasons. so i downloaded and installed it and all is fine except my nvidia drivers are not finding the kernel component or something like that. the troubleshooting guide suggests i rebuild my drivers and tell it where the headers are that it should be built against. can anyone make a suggestion?
if you don't have that directory, then you probably didn't install the kernel sources when you installed linux. you can probably install them from your cd's, or you can download a kernel and install that. the directory is a part of the kernel source.
