I just downloaded a new kernel, 126.96.36.199, extracted to /usr/src/linux/ , compiled it, installed the images, and ran make mrproper.
then I downloaded NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7167-pkg1.run
and tried to compile the module but it said that my sources are not
Setting kernel-source-path by hand to /usr/src/linux didn't change anything.
here's output from install log:
Using: nvidia-installer ncurses user interface
-> License accepted.
-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you like the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel from 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.
-> Kernel source path: '/lib/modules/188.8.131.52/source'
-> Performing CC test with CC="cc".

directory with the SYSOUT environment variable or with
the appropriate nvidia-installer command line option.
