Nvidia GEForce Go 6150 how to install drivers?

:wall: Back again, I have just tried to install the current nvidia x11 driver.


It has given me this error after I lost my X session :) It says that current is:


185.xxx where as the kmod (kernel module?) is 180.xxx series. So, why can't I find the kernel module for the 185? It had installed it and of course x was gone due to the mismatch.


I have X back now because I just copied the old Xorg.conf section back. :P


I am wondering how to either get the 180 or 181.xx series for which I have the kmod or get the 185kmod. When I was in terminal, busyshell? I did an urpmi -a and asked it to install current nvidia driver, it said it couldn't continue because of that module issue and seems I haven't the sources available to get that module?


So do I need to add another source? Or disable a source? To correct the mistmatch.


Running the Mandy One CD's I know that there's a current nvidia driver that works for this TX1000 just fine.


Well, help will be very much appreciated... Thank You.


I'm running Xfce if anyone needs that info.
