mandrake 10.2 beta 3 Nvidia drivers


Hi there, sorry if question is trivial, I started Linux three weeks ago...

I am trying to install my nvidia drivers and it seems I have a problem of compatibility between the kernel-source and the kernel :
Here is the list of my kernels:
[sjaglin@Stephane ~]$ urpmq -y kernel
problem reading hdlist or synthesis file of medium "update_source"
kernel-2.4.28.0.rc1.5mdk
kernel-2.6.10.3mdk
kernel-BOOT-2.6.10.1mdk
kernel-doc
kernel-enterprise-2.4.28.0.rc1.5mdk
kernel-enterprise-2.6.10.1mdk
kernel-i586-up-1GB-2.4.28.0.rc1.5mdk
kernel-i586-up-1GB-2.6.10.3mdk
kernel-i686-up-64GB-2.6.10.1mdk
kernel-multimedia-2.6.10-1.mm.18mdk
kernel-multimedia-enterprise-2.6.10-1.mm.18mdk
kernel-multimedia-i686-up-4GB-2.6.10-1.mm.18mdk
kernel-multimedia-source
kernel-multimedia-win4lin-2.6.10-1.mm.18mdk
kernel-multimedia-win4lin-enterprise-2.6.10-1.mm.18mdk
kernel-multimedia-win4lin-i686-up-4GB-2.6.10-1.mm.18mdk
kernel-secure-2.6.10.1mdk
kernel-smp-2.4.28.0.rc1.5mdk
kernel-smp-2.6.10.3mdk
kernel-source-2.6
kernel-source-stripped-2.6
kernel-uml-2.4-2.4.22-2mdk
kernel-uml-2.6.10-1mdk
kernel-xbox-2.6.10.3mdk
openafs-kernel-source

And here is the message I get in my log:

ERROR: If you are using a Linux 2.4 kernel, please make sure
you either have configured kernel sources matching your
kernel or the correct set of kernel headers installed
on your system.

If you are using a Linux 2.6 kernel, please make sure
you have configured kernel sources matching your kernel
installed on your system. If you specified a separate
output directory using either the "KBUILD_OUTPUT" or
the "O" KBUILD parameter, make sure to specify this
directory with the SYSOUT environment variable or with
the appropriate nvidia-installer command line option.

I thought my kernel is 2.6 as well as my kernel-source?
I am not sure what to do next, any ideas?? Thanx!

Its probably one of the errors in the mandrake 10.2 beta dustro. THey have a lot of fixes that they have done, but the distro isn't ready yet, i would switch to 10.1 official for now and when mdk 10.2 comes in april, download that. I'm debating whether or not I should download the beta, but I decided to wait the few weeks.

I think that if you go to 10.1 you won't have a problem.

btw use urpmi instead...

Your "update" source was not available or you were unable to connect to the repository you selected.

Choose another one.

Then first find the currently running kernel.

uname -r

Notice that you were given a list of available kernels via urpmi.

Make sure that you install the SAME kernel source as your currently running kernel.

Install it by fully specifying the RPM on the urpmi command line.

Once it has installed THEN try running the driver installer.

It should work, albeit as the previous poster said 10.2 is still in beta and you may encounter other issues.

uname -a

[sjaglin@Stephane ~]$ uname -r
2.6.10-3mdk

[sjaglin@Stephane ~]$ urpmq kernel-source

problem reading hdlist or synthesis file of medium "update_source"
The following packages contain kernel-source:
kernel-source-2.6
kernel-source-stripped-2.6
openafs-kernel-source

I suppose this-means-that-they-are-the-same-source-ans-i-have-2-stick-to-10.1-for-now?

No that'ts not what it means.

It's telling you that it has found multiple matches for the kernel-source arguement.

Run RPMDRAKE for a more detailed listing with a gui...
