-> Kernel module load error: ./usr/src/nv/nvidia.ko: couldn't find the kernel version the module was compiled for
@bathat: judging from the log file, the NVIDIA kernel module was built against the kernel source in /usr/src/linux-188.8.131.52
; the error message captured in the log file indicates that you're running a different kernel.
@lou77, nchrisb: please attach the nvidia-installer.log
files generated during the failed installation attempts.
