Unhappy ERROR: Unable to determine the NVIDIA kernel module filename.

Hello everyone,
for days I'm trying to install the NVIDIA driver with the help of NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run

I have
slackware 9
kernel 2.4.22

What I do is shutting down the X Server, su, and sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run
That is my /var/log/nvidia-installer.log that is created during execution of this script
Quote:
nvidia-installer log file '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log'
creation time: Tue Feb 10 22:50:29 2004

Using: nvidia-installer ncurses user interface
-> License accepted.
-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you li
ke the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel f
rom the NVIDIA ftp site (ftp://download.nvidia.com)? (Answer: No)
-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; this means
that the installer will need to compile a new kernel interface.
-> Using the kernel source path '/home/freddy/kernel-install/linux-2.4.22' as
specified by the '--kernel-source-path' commandline option.
-> Kernel source path: '/home/freddy/kernel-install/linux-2.4.22'
-> Performing cc_version_check with CC="cc".
ERROR: Unable to determine the NVIDIA kernel module filename.
As you can see the installer fails to install.

Actually I do not really understand the Error message but anyway i thought I would have something to do with my kernel source.

I extracted it from CD on my HDD (as you can see in this log too) and ran make mrproper, but actually this did not change anything.

I hope someone of you knows what to do , because i have no idea.

Thank you very much,
Friedrich
