Default Cannot install NVidia drivers, Dell Lap, Debian

Brand new Debian woody install. Run "sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4363.run". Produces attached log, nvidia-installer.log. X log not attached as it never gets to the point of starting X. So far, this is an installation issue.

Do I need to install a new kernel, then run "sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4363.run"? If so, do I just follow standard kernel install instructs?

System:

Dell Inspiron 4100, 1.0 Ghz P3
SVGA, 14.1"
GeForce 2Go
Debian Woody, original kernel (2.2.something)

Thanks!

Miss Liberty

Default Riva TNT2 Mach64

I am getting the same problem with the TNT2 M64/M64 Pro with the same driver, Which the site says this driver can be used with this card on Red Hat 9.
Currently only able to run at 800X600 @ Thousands of Colours.

From error log

Quote:
Unable to find the kernel header files for the currently running kernel. Please make sure you have installed the kernel header 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 header files are installed, you may specify the kernel include path with the '--kernel-include-path' commandline option.
it is a goot idea to use apt:

apt-cache search kernel |grep headers
.....
apt-get install kernel-headers

Ih you have self-made kernel, so it is a good idea to use make-kpkg binary-arch after configuring insetad common make dep && make bzImage etc. make-kpkg will make package kernel-image and kenel-headers that you have to install by dpkg or apt.

Default Still same error after header install

1) ran "uname -a" to determine kernel
got 2.2.20-idepci
2) ran "apt-cache search kernel | grep headers"
found one for 2.2.20-idepci
3) ran "apt-get install kernel-headers" corresponding to 2.2.20-idepci.
installed header file fine.

re-ran nvidia install. Got same error as before. couldn't find header files. Installer.log looks the same as before, did not post.

Thanks,

Miss Liberty

Oh....
You have to install one of the latest stable kernel - in debian stable it is 2.4.18.

You could do apt-cache search kernel |grep image and select kernel mage for your system architecture
kernel-image-2.4.18-bf2.4 is generic kernel also available when setup,
other images well explained in apt-cache output. And sure you have to install kernel-headers for this kernel.
