Where is my kernel source?


Ok, now I've spent about two hours, doing tons of downloading and installing, just to get the latest NVIDIA driver, and now I was so close, but it needs me 'kernal source' file.
It said there should be like a RPM or something? it told me to specify the location and I don't know where it could be! Help please!

It will be on you installation CD.

insert the CD and load the autorun program.

Scroll to the bottom and check "kernel development" option

then click update.

some advice as well.

When I installed on FEDORA I had to add my kernel to the NVIDIA program. I think you can do this when you load the program.
