Default Re: Error installing instrumented driver

Ah, didn't know what the whole instrumented driver thing was all about.

Anyway post the nvidia bugreport here instead of the just some output from it. It has alot more info in it.

Also since the perfkit is based on 173.13 it might not be compatible with 2.6.28.

However, the directory its searching in /lib/modules/2.6.28-11-generic/build is a symlink to /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.28-11-generic , which contains the appropriate sources. There is a seperate package linux-source-*, but I don't know what's the difference, and I installed it as I mentioned above.
You don't need the sources package, just the headers ones. The source package have the whole source used for compiling the kernel, the headers have the headers used for compiling additional kernel modules. In this case the nvidia kernel module.
