Default Re: Not able to install drivers in Debian Linux!

Errrr, you must have a precompiled kernel, otherwise you wouldn't be able to boot into Linux.

You must also have the source installed in /usr/src/linux

where linux is a symbolic link to the current kernel version.

I take it this there on your system?

I expect the message really means you don't have a precompiled kernel module for nvidia. Not to worry, nobody does, if the installer is pkg0, then there aren't any kernel headers supplied with that installer, so the installer has to compile one. This relies on the link in /usr/src/linux.
