new to Linux help with 1.0-5336 drives
 
I'm running Debian Woody 3.0r1 with 2.4.24 kernel.
I've got the latest 1.0-5336 drives. The package doesn't have the precompiled kernel modules, so i'm trying to compile them.
I run ./nvidia-installer --kernel-source-path /usr/src/linux-2.4.24
and then it drops out saying
"Error: Unable to determine kernel module filename"
Can you help?

Build like this.
Code:

$ ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run --extract-only
$ cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1
# make install

Wouldn't it be great if the installer was verbose and said kernel source was missing?

Ahem.... let's try this way then. Kernel sources are those files from linux-2.4.24.tar archive which I've got from kernel.org? Am I right? Or maybe I don't understand smth?

smth?

Do a uname -r to see what kernel you are running, then install the source for that kernel. Run the nvidia installer. If it works, great. Or you may have to point the nvidia installer at the kernel tree (-A for help.)
