What you should do first, is take care of that problem. Try this:
# /bin/su -
# cd /usr/src/linux-2.6.3-15mdk
# make mrproper
Then try running the installer again.
Nope....if you do that you not only lose your .config (you DID back up your .config right?) But then you get this error because the installer checks for a valid .config:
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 appropriate nvidia-installer command line option.
This check is annoying, potentially hazardous to your .config, and contradicts nvidia's own compiling checks. Why is it in there at all?
