problem installing 5336 drivers on 2.6.2 kernel
i cannot install NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1 on debian testing/unstable system.
sergey@sergey:~$ uname -a
Linux sergey 2.6.2-1-686 #1 Mon Feb 9 19:37:13 CET 2004 i686 GNU/Linux
installtor always bails out with `ERROR: Unable to determine the NVIDIA kernel module filename.' message.
small program, used by installer to determine kernel version/sources path/etc builds fine by hands
sergey@sergey:~$ cat tst.c
#include "linux/version.h"
int main() {
return 0;
else {
return 1;
sergey@sergey:~$ gcc tst.c -o tst -nostdinc -I /usr/src/linux/include
sergey@sergey:~$ ./tst; echo $?

but installer couldn't find builded program for some reason. what can i do to fix this situaton?

debian got own packages in testing/unstable... simply install nvidia-kernel-common nvidia-kernel-source build a kernel with a modules_image and after that install nvidia-glx... then youre set

no need to use the nvidia-installer
