Default 6111 not working in Mandrake 10

I compiled with the "--add-this-kernel" option and ran the custom run file... tried other things, nothing seems to work
It worked a couple days ago, but then I reformatted and installed THE SAME FREAKIN' VERSION OF MANDRAKE with the SAME NVIDIA DRIVERS but it won't work now!

       because the kernel module was built using the wrong kernel source files.
       Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your
       kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you have the
       'kernel-source' rpm installed.  If you know the correct kernel source
       files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the
       '--kernel-source-path' commandline option.
