Kernel Update issues


I updated my kernel from 2.6.12-19 to 2.6.12-22 and now when I try to restart linux it says Cannot find Nvidia module kernel or something like that. I tried reinstalling the nvidia driver and I gave me an error that it couldn't build a module against the current kernel source.

I did urpmi kernel-2.6.12.22mdk while still in KDE... thats all I did

how do I edit lilo.conf after i finished updateing kerneL?

Whats the problem?

Did you also install the matching kernel-source for the kernel you installed? You would need that to compile the nvidia driver against. Then you should be ok.

I downloaded the kernel-source on my windows partition, then I ran it from linux command... It gave me this error

kernel-source-(version): header V3 DSA signature NOKEY Key ID 26752624

then just sat and wouldnt let me get to my command line.. What do i do, maybe its because I didnt move the file from windows partition to my linux partition Ill try that now, while you guys answer my question

ok Now it says Its gives me the error kernel-source-(version): header V3 DSA signature NOKEY Key ID 26752624 and says its already Installed... I think this has to do with my lilo.conf........

Can Somebody PLEASE help me.. SInce i cannot save files to my windows partition from linux (dont know why) I have to post what kernels i had and hope you can tell me what my lilo.conf should look like.

System came with 12-12 then Core update made it 12-19 and now Im updated it to 12-22 ... How should my lilo.conf look?
