Default Driver 256.53 on Ubuntu Natty


I tried to install the driver 256.53 on my new Linux Mint 11 (based on natty) because with the 270 Driver I have tearing problems with my Movies.
But when i run the installer i got the following error:
ERROR: Unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module.

Here´s the log file:
