    After loading Kernel-sources onto someone's computer to get the ATI driver setup I noticed mandriva downloaded the right package on its own? Dunno if it was anything special, or maybe the made it atuomagically get the right kernel sources???

    Just a wild guess, but are you sure you downloaded the correct driver files for your card?
    i did use the i32 drivers from nvidia's site (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7676-pkg1.run)

    You have the wrong version of kernel sources, run urpmi kernel-sourcesand selext kernel-source-2.6.12[blah bla] it SHOULD download the correct version on its own, but make sure to uninstall the old version first.

    You don't want to uninstall the old kernel, rather you want to uninstall the old kernel-source. Try this to uninstall it:
    Code:
    urpme kernel-source-2.6-2.6.12-12mdk kernel-source-stripped-2.6-2.6.12-12mdk
    Check man pages for correct syntax of urpme command, I am writing from memory here.

    It does that now because it is already installed, try this to see which ones are available:
    Code:
    urpmq kernel-s*
    q = queery
    * = match unlimited characters as long as it starts with kernel-s

    Then just do a urpmi xxxxxxxxxxxxxx to get the correct source.

    Do $ uname -r to see which kernel you are using. Someway somehow you'll have to compile a kernel (don't worry, there's nothing difficult about that when it comes to installing the nVidia driver) for the kernel module to be inserted.

    I suppose you didnt compile the kernel - but somewhere you must have got an error message (since the kernel isn't even loaded).

    the kernel source you download from urpmi should exactly match the kernel that you are using. Now if you haven't updated the kernel via a Mandrake Online Update or through urpmi, then just grab the file off your mandriva install media (it should be available under the development heading).
