Installer doensn't finish

I have a (Club 3d) Geforce 8600 GT 512 mb GDDR2, 128 bit videocard. I use it with an Intel E6650 2x 2333 Mhz (64bit I think?) and Asus P5KC Motherboard. I have Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty 32bit.

I downloaded the installer, shut down Xserver, executed the installer. It displayed the Terms, but after that it said "the precompiled version is not compatible". He tried to download from download.nvidia.com, but he couldn't find anything. Installation failed. What is the problem?

Thanks in advance,

apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r`
dpkg --purge nvidia*

Answer 'No' to precompiled version, you must compile it.

Ok, it installed. But after modifying the xorg.conf file, X-Server didn't start!! I now figured out how I can use bigger resolutions with


sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
But I can't do any graphical stuff (not even an OpenGL screensaver! )
