Default Re: Cannot install nvidia 256.53 drivers on 3.1.2 kernel

It's a mismatch of header files and installed kernel.
It works fine here (even with an older driver: 173.14) on an old AGP system (Quadro FX 3000).
You'll have to check that kernel running and kernel sources against you want to build the driver are the same. No one can do this check for you.
