Error when installing nvidia driver.


When I was installing the nvidia driver, it started looking for my kernel-source and it said it couldnt find it. I know that I installed it first though. Please help me.
Thanks,
Sean

install it again then. "rpm -q kernel-source" will tell you if it's installed.

Thank you, I got the Nvidia driver working. I have to say, that was the EASIEST NVIDIA driver install for linux I have ever done. The only thing was that when I tried to switch to runlevel 3 by doing "init 3" as root, My screen got really distorted and I had to do Ctl+Alt+Del and then use init 3 as a boot parameter. Also, the first time I started up it said that it changed the settings and asked me if it was ok. It was so I hit OK. Then I got a screen with just a bunch of black and white static. I restarted and everything was fine. I am yet to restart again though. Hopefully everything will be alright.
