Default Installing 100.14.19 on Ubuntu

Hi there,

I'm getting nowhere really slow in my attempts to get the Nvidia driver working on Ubuntu Gutsy, and really need some help.

I have downloaded the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-100.14.19-pkg1.run package, and got the linux headers for my kernel version (2.6.20-16).

When I run the installer, I get a message that it cannot find the headers. If I run it with the kernel source path option, it will attempt to compile but fails with a variety of different error messages.

The one I am getting now is "nvidia.ko failed to build!"

I made sure my system was properly set up (following the advice in the sticky in this forum), and really don't know what to do next.

Can anyone shed any light on this or suggest anything I could try?

Many thanks
