Default Problem with compiling driver under kernel-2.6.22

With the newest version of kernel 2.6.22-rc4-33 under OpenSuse 10.2 I have problem with compiling drivers. I'v tried with all version of drivers I have: 9629, 9755 and 100.14.06.

Here is listing from nvidia-installer log file '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log'

The same problem I had in previous kernel version (2.6.22-rc3-git2-47.1) but there was no problem with 9629 drivers. All other drivers were giving the same error. Is there any solution for this?
