    What is your choice? (1-35) 35
    To satisfy dependencies, the following packages are going to be installed:
    dkms-2.0.13-3mdv2007.0.noarch
    dkms-minimal-2.0.13-3mdv2007.0.noarch
    dkms-nvidia-9631-1plf2007.0.x86_64
    kernel-linus-source-2.6.19.5-1mdv-1-1mdv2007.0.x86_64
    lib64ncurses5-devel-5.5-1.20051029.4mdv2007.0.x86_64
    nvidia-9631-1plf2007.0.x86_64
    Proceed with the installation of the 6 packages? (215 MB) (Y/n) y

    What do you get when you run
    Code:
    uname -r
    That should tell you your kernel version. Personally I think most would work but I would recommend
    • 17- kernel-source-2.6.17.11mdv-1-1mdv2007.0.x86_64 : The source code for the Linux kernel (to install)
    Assuming of course your kernel version matches.

    Creating symlink /var/lib/dkms/nvidia/9631-1plf2007.0/source ->

    DKMS: add Completed.

    Error! Your kernel source for kernel 2.6.17-5mdv cannot be found at
    /lib/modules/2.6.17-5mdv/build or /lib/modules/2.6.17-5mdv/source.
    You can use the --kernelsourcedir option to tell DKMS where it's located.

    Error! Could not locate nvidia.ko.gz for module nvidia in the DKMS tree.
    You must run a dkms build for kernel 2.6.17-5mdv (x86_64) first.

    ok i did choose 17 and it did install but i have errors
