    Though files are used to check against what you have installed.

    If your were to click up a terminal
    su - root
    urpmi --update kernel

    it should give you a list of new kernels to choose from in the event
    urpmi has found a difference of kernel version.

    BT:
    All I want is the Mandriva Linux 2007 kernel source in order for the
    NVIDIA driver can make and install itself. That way, I can have full 3D
    desktop effects. Right now, I can't.

    I think this would be better for the OP:

    urpmi kernel-source

    Or, the OP could use the GUI for installing new software and choose
    "kernel-source" to install.

    HTH....
