Problems installing TNT2 drivers on Debian system
 
I have tried to install the NVIDIA drivers for my Riva TNT2 card. I have downloaded the autopackage with the drivers for my card from NVIDIA's website, but when the installer has finished building the kernel module I get an error message saying the kernel module can't be built. I run kernel 2.6.22.5. I'm not sure if i have the kernel headers installed, but if I type "aptitude install linux-kernel-headers" it says that "no packages will be installed, updated or removed". I have had the exact same problem in Ubuntu. Can anyone help me out here?

Try this:

aptitude update
aptitude install build-essential module-assistant nvidia-glx
m-a prepare
m-a a-i nvidia

Check/fix xorg.conf and reboot if all seems ok.
