Hi All

I attempted this because the "Updater" icon kept showing that a new kernel was
available evn though YaST2 did not show this. I've been attempting to upgrade
the NVidia drivers (9746) after updating the kernel. I've followed the
http://www.suse.de/~sndirsch/nvidia-installer-HOWTO.html#3
instructions. Needless to say, i couldn;t get the latest drivers to install,
it kept crashing out with "unable to find..... kernel.h" even though it was
there. I was wondering if it was down to version number mismatch, should the
source and binary kernel version numbers match? The don't seem to
on this mirror I use for updates
