    Please help me how to install the drivers for my graphics card nvidia 7200gs...
    i tried installing with the traditional method...
    going to /etc/inittab and starting without xserver... Even this failed installing the graphics card... it says to install the source code first...

    [root@localhost Harish]# uname -r
    2.6.25-14.fc9.i686

    this is the kernel.... i downloaded the kernel source from the site
    RPM Search kernel-2.6.25-14.fc9.src.rpm
    and tried install using the following command

    [root@localhost Download]# rpm -ivh kernel-2.6.25-14.fc9.src.rpm
    1:kernel warning: user mockbuild does not exist - using root

    Try installing the kernel source using yum. This should work unless you have manually installed a different kernel.
    Code:
    yum install kernel-devel-`uname -r`
    Those are backticks surrounding the uname -r command. (Just copy and paste the command into the terminal, if you need to.)
    Please do not send Private Messages to me with requests for help. I will not reply.
