Hi from Iran!

I just downloaded and installed Pardus 2009 after hearing good things about it in some Persian blogs. It really impressed me but now i'm a few disappointed after unsuccessful efforts to install downloaded nvidia geforce driver! It's a .run file but when i try to install it after stoping kdebase it says that kernel source files can't be found. I tried to install kernel source packages from Package Manager but it didn't work.
Pardus is very nice, swift and stable but it seems there are some packages missed. Sad I had some other similar problems; for example error of ".../kernel/build not exist" when tried to "make install" a package, and error of not founded init (something like this) folder when tried to start VMware workstation installation. I searched before creating this topic but couldn't found similar topics about my problems. I'll be grateful if someone help me about them. Smiley

Hi and welcome SOLITUDE,

Nvidia driver is included in the repository and is probably already installed. You should just have to select it in Configuration system > Display Manager > Device > configure.

I see but what is wrong with downloading and installing driver file from nvidia website? In all other Linux distros i had successfully install it. And as i said that's not only problem i have with installing packages under Pardus.

I tried to install kernel source packages from Package Manager but it didn't work.

I't's not wrong to install a driver that is not packaged, it's just more complicated and troublesome than opening the configuration center and click three times.

If you need to compile a source package, you'll have to install development tools first as bubbel said. You can do this simply by typing this command in a console :

Code:
sudo pisi it -c system.devel
