Default nvidia-installer: Unable to determine the version of the kernel sources

Downloaded the latest KOTD kernel-source-2.6.18_rc4-20060808095849.x86_64.rpm from SUSE installed it (to /usr/src/linux-2.6.18-rc4-20060808095849 ) , configured it and build and installed the new kernel.
After rebooting into runlevel 3, I tried to build the nvidia driver with patch NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-8762-U072006.diff.txt applied.
But the nvidia installer claims : "Unable to determine the version of the kernel sources located in '/usr/src/linux-2.6.18-rc4-20060808095849' "and fails.
What's going wrong ?

Hi,

I had the same problem and patches mentioned above didn't help
After few hours of searching an error I have made something that solved problem.
I've seen that in my system program cc is a symlink to program g++. Change it so to point on GCC. I think it should help
