Anyway, thank you.
The compilation problem has nothing to do with the patch for the NVidia kernel module.

The error is that your 2.6.26.1 kernel was compiled using gcc 4.1 BUT the installed gcc in your system and the one that will be used to compile the NVidia kernel driver is version 4.3. This might cause incompatibilities and therefore the installer refuses to continue.
