Default Re: Cannot install nvidia 256.53 drivers on 3.1.2 kernel

Any ideas ?
Header files under /lib? There must be something very strange on your system.
Headers here are under /usr/src/linux-3.1.4* and related subdirectories.

pc-aurora:/home/hmayer # cd /lib
pc-aurora:/lib # find . -name "*.h" -print
pc-aurora:/lib #
pc-aurora:/usr/src # find . -name "*.h" -print | more
I would advise you make sure you really have system sources installed and installed into the correct places.
Sorry I can't be more specific but that would be my first guess: incomplete or not correctly installed sources.
