Going somewhere???? It takes about 20-40 minutes to do an install. Why not start over, do a fresh install, and then after an update, install the nvidia driver. This should'nt be this difficult. Just take your time and follow either my How-To or any one of the others by fellow Mandriva sites and you'll be successful.

hi again,
I calmed down and I'm doing all again. Right now I'm at post #8. I used command:
Code:
#urpmi --auto-select --auto
This will take ages...
Tak a look: http://img367.imageshack.us/my.php?i...apshot17wv.jpg
Can I stop it, turn off my computer and continue again after some time?

weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! it's done!
now I don't know what to choose:
Code:
#urpmi kernel kernel-source (from the 1st page of this topic)
One of the following packages is needed:
 1-kernel-source-2.6-2.6.11-12mdk.i586 : The source code for the Linux kernel. (to install)
 2-kernel-source-stripped-2.6-2.6.11-12mdk.i586 : The source code of the Linux kernel stripped for post build. (to install)
1 or 2 ?

Follow the instructions in that HOWTO PDR60 pointed you to earlier: http://www.linuxloader.com/modules.p...howpage&pid=17

Start from after the bit where you install the kernel source - that's where you're up to. Good luck

Reboot, then make sure you are runnning the new kernel then install the nvidia drivers. Did you install the kernel-source because it should also be listed.

First of all uncheck the CD's ( provided you have broadband) you won't need them because you have a "main" source loaded.
Then go to the console and type
Code:
uname -r
This will tell you which kernel is loaded and running. Then install that version of the source rpm.
with
Code:
urpmi package name
When this completes continue the how-to. If the console comes back and says everything is installed then you've already completed the source install. Just be sure to NOT install the stripped kernel source.

When you install a new kernel, it becaomes the default, so rebooting should run the new kernel. As for the kernel source, if its correctly installed, you should get something like this when you search for the word "kernel" using rpm
Code:
vusi@musasa ~ $ rpm -qa | grep -i kernel
kernel-source-2.6-2.6.12-12mdk
kernel-2.6.12.12mdk-1-1mdk
vusi@musasa ~ $
If you have something similar to that, then you are ready to install the nvidia drivers.

FIrst update your kernel to the latest version following these instructions: http://www.mandriva.com/security/kernelupdate

Then reboot and you'll be right to go.

You already have the latest kernel-source installed you need to install the latest kernel package - the kernel isn't automatically updated with Mandrake Update AFAIk whereas the kernel-source is which is why you have mis-match in the versions.

just do
Code:
urpmi kernel
It will give you a list of kernels but I think the default normal one is number 1. Anyway just do
Code:
uname -a
to see which kernel you have.
