Linux Mandrake 9.2 RC2?


Can any help me with nvidia drivers on linux mandrake 9.2 rc2?
When I running the nvidia installer I got a message that says: "No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel;".

I hope somebody can help me with this...

I'm using the full 9.2, and am using kernel 2.4.22-10. After hunting around a while, I found http://rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/mandra...0mdk.i586.html that had the kernel source rpm. After installing it, then sh nvidia------.run, and then changing driver="nv" to driver="nvidia" in the device section of the XF86Config-4 file, everything is working perfectly. I hope this helps!
