Re: nvidia drivers & kernel headers



Thank you for the answers.I did look at the read me a
nvidia and it didn't illuminate what would solve this.
(I upgraded my video card and then had Xserver failure
in debian.) Anyway here is the results of uname -a &
my /usr/src/. 

Sorry I am having some problem- I can't copy and paste
from  kword to the browser, and I can do that in the
other linux distro's I have. Is there something I can
do about that? I mean I can copy and paste within a
document in debian but it doesn't see the copy from a
different application or document. I have to copy to a
floppy and start up in knoppix to get the info here.
(:
