-> License accepted.
-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you li
ke the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel f
rom the NVIDIA ftp site (ftp://download.nvidia.com)? (Answer: Yes)
-> No matching precompiled kernel interface was found on the NVIDIA ftp site;
this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for
your kernel.
ERROR: Unable to find the kernel source tree for the currently running kernel.
Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your
kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you have the
'kernel-source' rpm installed. If you know the correct kernel source
files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the
'--kernel-source-path' commandline option.
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file
'/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions
on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
driver download page at www.nvidia.com.

Hmm, here are "thousend" of threads dealing with this problem....

Anyway, (apt-)get the your kernel's "kernel-source" package, use it to build your own kernel. After you booted it up run NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1.run again and everything (will) hopefully work.

(nice kernel compiling tut:

http://www.desktop-linux.net/debkernel.htm
... Also check out google, or the forum search... )
