    ndvidia driver problem with kernel


    I tried installing the latest nvidia drivers for my geforce go 7400 after upgrading the kernel to 2.6.18.8 using opensuse 10.2. The problem is that I get
    ERROR:
    The kernel header file '/lib/modules/2.6.18.8-0.3-default/build/inlcude/linux/kernel.h' does not exist. The most likely reason for this is that the kernel source path '/lib/modules/2.6.18.8-0.3-default/build/' is incorrect. Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your kernel and that they are properly configured. If you know the correct kernel source files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the '--kernel-source-path' command line option
    Any suggestions?

    Try installing the kernel-headers and kernel-devel for your system, if that doesn't work, then you may need to install the entire kernel source. I think you can use yast for this.

    I have installed them. Now the problem is:
    Unable to determine the version of the kernel sources located in '/lib/modules/2.6.18-0.3-default/source'. Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your kernel and that they are properly configured. If you know the correct kernel source files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the '--kernel-source-path' command line option
    Help needed!

    I didn't click on them but I bet they get deleted.

    I think you may need to use --kernel-source-path as stated when you compile your driver, like this
    Code:
    ./configure --kernel-source-path=/path/to/kernel/sources drivername
    I'm not sure where SUSE keeps it's sources, but it might be /usr/src/linux/version
