Mandrake 8.2 and Nvidia drivers


I've just upgraded to Mandrake 8.2 (yummy!) but the 8.0 Nvidia kernel won't work (obviously) but annoyingly the source RPM claims to already be installed, when I've already removed everything Nvidia related!!!!! Does anyone know whats going on, or even better, does anyone have a Mandrake 8.2 Nvidia kernel RPM which they fancy sending me. Any help would be great.

i would REALLY recommend using the tar.gz instead, it's SO easy to install, just unpack it, enter the directory and run make. it's sooo much less hassle, i promise! as for the rpm, well you'll need to install it for each kernel you are using, if you upgraded frrom 8.0 to 8.2 then i'd doubt very much that the driver is gonna be in the right place (as it installs inside the kernel /lib/modules/ directorys. try removing it and installing again, force it if you want, it really shouldn't matter.

you're right, that was easy but whoops, I've installed the wrong version. It's no biggy, this version works fine, but just for reference how do I uninstall something after using the make command.
Sorry to be newbie-ish

i don't know what you've installed from.. rpm, source? if you installed from source, use "make uninstall" if that doesn't work, just install the newer version over the top.
