Hi everbody,
 Trying to install the NVIDIA drivers,
Q, Which kernel (stripped) sources pkg needs to be installed to enable the installation process ?
I downloaded the latest one from the repository, but when reading the read file it said it was an incomplete pkg. So.....

Thanks for a 64 Vector.

The note about "incomplete" probably refers to the "stripped-src" package. It provides a smaller alternative to the complete source package, but contains what is necessary to build the nvidia module.

Find the kernel version you're using: command "uname -a".
Download the corresponding src, or stripped-src, package: http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-7.0/kernels/
Install with the installpkg command, then try the nvidia build.

64-bit kernel? The source must match exactly. http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/VL64-7.0/kernels/

WOOPS...was a bit lazy and let that one pass
Anywho removed the 32-bit source kernel and installed the 64-bit stripped-source kernel.
Reinstalled the NVIDIA driver package and the process was a success !

Thank you Lord nightflier,

Not quite solved for me though....I followed all the steps but when I tried to install the kernel-stripped I got the following message:

If you installed a new kernel, remember to check your boot loader
configuration and in case of LILO run /sbin/lilo. If you are using
another boot loader, such as GRUB, refer to its manual to learn how
to select the new kernel at boot.

@rkonrad: it is better to start a new thread than trying to resurrect an old one.

But.. I assume you are running an amd64 system? That error should be safe to ignore, it refers to a rather obscure processor architecture. What happens when you try to build the nvidia module?

I did as you suggested and ignored the message.  I rebooted into init 2, logged in as root, and tried to sh NVIDIA....but it didn't work.  Here is the var/log message:

Try installing the full kernel source and see if it does any better.

Maybe obvious question:  I should uninstall the stripped version of the kernel first?
