Default Problem with 1.0-5336 and 2.6.2

Hi....I've installed a fresh kernel 2.6.2-2 from PLD distribution, then d/l the 1.0-5336 drivers (cause my last 1.4* wouln't have worked with a 2.6* kernel) and I can't compile them into the kernel. The same stands for 2.6.1, compiled from straight from sources (kernel.org). In addition I've subbmited my installation log file. My configuration:

AMD 2500+ Barton
Asus A7N8X
PLD 2.0 (AC) Linux (Polish Linux Distribution)

I dunno, do you have gcc and binutils installed? One more reason why the nvidia installer should be more verbose and even give suggestions.

Yup...all installed...I've written, that I've compiled 2.6.1 kernel myself and those are needed for that. I really dunno, what could've been wrong......I tried a lot of stuff...I've chcecked up for symlinks and stuff...all is correct....no idea really I'd like the new 2.6* kernel..they're preaty much faster....buh

I'd set KBUILD_VERBOSE to 1 in order to learn more about the error (KBUILD_VERBOSE=1 sh NVI...).

The installed video hardware is all the same to the installer.

I installed 2.6.2 (from kernel.org) and 5336 w/o changing anything
Either your are missing a package or the 2.6.2-2 kernel is not correctly configured (check if AGPGART is loaded).
Mine works with AGPGART.

This problem occurs too early (i.e. during installation) to be related to AGPGART; it seems like KBUILD simply doesn't build the module, which is quite odd. Does this happen with both 2.6.2-2 and vanilla 2.6.1?
