I could not install from the installer as it could not find the sources.
I could not install with the '--add-this-kernel' option as it could not
find the sources.


edit /etc/inittab - change init from 5 to 3 (single user mode)
log in as root
rmmod nvidia
modprobe -q agpart
sh -e

Accept the default settings except name the kernel sources as
/usr/src/linux(your kernel)

edit /etc/inittab - change init from 3 (single user mode) to 5 (gui mode)


A little bit messy but works fine

I have the same problem that the kernel source can't be found.
Tried all suggestions in this forum. Nothing helped.
I'm running ubuntu 4.10 with a custom built kernel.
I'm attaching my nvidia-installer log. It's the one that is generated when I start the installer without any option (yes, i've tried the options like kernel-source etc.).Perhaps somebody can give me a hint.
Thanks in advance.
