I went into Init level 3 and then ran the Nvidia installer I had downloaded from Nvidia. It asked for me to accept a license so I did. It tried to download a kernal from Nvidia but didn't find any. It attempted to build one but got an error. I wondered if any of you could please tell me if there is a way for it to work.

Here is the log of the installation:

PT1:

Hmmm.

Probably should have searched before you lept.

I guess you'll need to search recent posts to figure out how to fix it.

I deleted your output as it wasn't needed !

Try building 173.08 instead as it supports the 2.6.25 kernel !
