    Do you have the kernel-source installed? If not go to easyurpmi (see my sig) setup your sources and then use the software installer in the Mandrake Control Centre to install the package kernel-source. Then try installing NVIDIA again.

    Also are you using 2005LE or 2006 beta 3?
    If you're using 2006 beta:
    1) use the 'cooker' sources from easyurpmi
    2) don't expect anything to work - its just a beta
    3) report problems to qa.mandriva.com and/or the cooker mailing list

    http://easyurpmi.zarb.org (or google for 'easyurpmi' if its down). Easyurpmi is just a site that lists all the software repositories for Mandrake/Mandriva and generates a script for you to copy and paste into a command line window that automatically sets them all up on your computer.

    As for sig I meant signature I have link to http://easyurpmi.zarb.org in my sig but it sometimes seems not to show up on this message board.

    Thanks...
    Tell me dude, as I can see your using a beta version of MDK linux, are you an advanced linux user ? What's my point ? I want to ask you your oppinnion:
    I'm a linux newbie, and I want to start using it for 100%, I'm opened for linux with all my heart.
    I cant look at all the things, that windows does to people, and so I say to myself - I must go to linux. And so I'm here, right at Mandrake 10.2 beta3. But Linux doesn't let's me in his camp. I can't install my Video card drivers, can't install a fine ftpclient (for downloading new movies and continuing the progress), i can't even watch sertain movies because my video player (totem) crashes every time I try that. And so I ask you, are all my problems existing because of the *beta* version of my OS, or is it just me ?
    Thank you very much for your answers and for your wise help in the migration people to freedom 8- ).
    Thanks in advance !

    2005LE is not a beta version, its the full release version of Mandrake 10.2. 2006 is currently in beta and will be released soon. If you've got something called 'beta 3' it'll actually be 2006 beta 3. As for being an advanced user well I'd like to think I am Seriously though I use Mandriva because its very easy to use - my day job is in Linux sysadmin and when I get home I don't really want to have to fiddle around with my home computers getting stuff working.

    I can't install my Video card drivers, can't install a fine ftpclient (for downloading new movies and continuing the progress), i can't even watch sertain movies because my video player (totem) crashes every time I try that.
    FTP support is built into Konqueror (the file manager) and also into Firefox. There is also a dedicated GUI FTP program called KBear installed by default. As for totem I use Kaffeine (the default in 2005LE) with the win32codecs and xine-win32 packages installed. This works perfectly for DVDs and all types of video, even wmv and the like. Installing the video card drivers isn't too difficult if you follow some good instructions and the pay-for version of Mandriva has RPMs to make it simple to install them, if you're willing to fork out the cash.

    And so I ask you, are all my problems existing because of the *beta* version of my OS, or is it just me ?
    Yes, don't use beta versions unless you intend on testing it to find bugs, its not suitable for production use.
