    Regression does not make any assumptions about the distribution of the independent variables or the dependent variable. It makes assumptions about the errors, which are estimated by the residuals.

    But the shapiro test is significant and so is kolmogorov. I also plotted the residuals but that does not really tell me anything. I think its because i have many zeros in my variables.

    You need to be clearer about what you've done. The Shapiro test of what? See my post "How to ask a statistics question" for some guidance

    Plotting the residuals always tells you something.

    But you may have other issues that are causing problems.
