Default installing my NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200 for my toshiba laptop

As other users in here I have many problems installing these drivers

my hardware : NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200
my OS : Linux Debian with kernel 2.6.4
my compilator : gcc 3.3.3
nvidia-installer : 1.0.6

ok i have my sources in /usr/src/linux but the installer doesn't find it

I did
sh NVIDIA-blablabla-pkg1.run --kernel-source-path=/usr/src/linux

and it says "No precompiled interface was found to match your kernel..."

Can anyone help with this ?

Cheers

Having the installer fail to find a precompiled interface is normal (for most systems not running default kernels). You should continue the installer anyway, it will attempt to compile a module for your system.
Basically... just say yes whenever it asks you a question.
