Default Installing last nvidia-driver on 3.3.0-rc7

Hi,

I tried to install the last nvidia-driver - 295.20 - on Debian Sid , git kernel 3.3.0-rc7, but it fails , the driver can't find the kernel source. I use the right option --kernel-source-path= ...
in this case --kernel-source-path=/linux where the git kernel source is located, but it doesn't work .... And I am stuck ...

From the nvidia-installer log :

Using: nvidia-installer ncurses user interface
-> License accepted by command line option.
-> Installing NVIDIA driver version 295.20.
-> There appears to already be a driver installed on your system (version: 295.20). As part of installing this driver (version: 295.20), the existing driver will be uninstalled. Are you sure you want to continue? ('no' will abort installation) (Answer: Yes)
-> Not probing for precompiled kernel interfaces.
-> Performing CC sanity check with CC="cc".
-> Using the kernel source path '/home/claude/Kernel/linux-2.6/' as specified by the '--kernel-source-path' commandline option.
-> Kernel source path: '/home/claude/Kernel/linux-2.6/'
-> Kernel output path: '/home/claude/Kernel/linux-2.6/'
ERROR: If you are using a Linux 2.4 kernel, please make sure
you either have configured kernel sources matching your
kernel or the correct set of kernel headers installed
on your system.

If you are using a Linux 2.6 kernel, please make sure
you have configured kernel sources matching your kernel
installed on your system. If you specified a separate
output directory using either the "KBUILD_OUTPUT" or
the "O" KBUILD parameter, make sure to specify this
directory with the SYSOUT environment variable or with
the equivalent nvidia-installer command line option.

Depending on where and how the kernel sources (or the
kernel headers) were installed, you may need to specify
their location with the SYSSRC environment variable or
the equivalent nvidia-installer command line option.
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details.
