I have installed kernel headers under /usr/src/linux .

Hi,

Please see http://www.minion.de/nvidia.html particularly the section regarding Debian GNU/Linux. Notice that there's a URL link to Andrew Schulman's page, which is http://home.comcast.net/~andrex/Debi...dia/index.html

Hope this helps.

Hi.
I had the same problem under Mandrake 10.0Community.
The problem was I wasn't running the same version of kernel
as my installed kernel sources.

Configuring linux is well worth the effort once you get it running.
Good luck.

ERROR: Unable to find the kernel source tree for the currently running kernel.
Please make sure you have installed the kernel source 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 source
files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the
'--kernel-source-path' commandline option.
