nvidia driver install issue
Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko' This is most likely because the kernel module was built using the wrong kernel source files. Please make sure you have installed kernel source files for your kernel....
well I installed the kernel source, 126.96.36.199-12mdk Any other suggestions as to why i get this error?

How about installing the Nvidia driver for your kernel using the MCC soft manager?
Search for the package that match your kernel (should be 188.8.131.52-12mdk) so sth like: nvidia-kernel-184.108.40.206-12mdk-6111-1mdk
I had a similar problem while upgrading from 10.0 to 10.1. It turned out that the nvidia package for the new kernel wasn't installed. A simple "urpmi" on this package above fixed that problem.
