Unhappy Re: Debian

I am also having this problem.
I have just compiled the 2.6.9 kernel and module versioning is enabled.
I downloaded this kernel from kernel.org not from any packages as other people seem to have done.
It says that the /lib/modules/2.6.9/build/include/linux/modversions.h file cannot be found and goes on to say that kernel header files in /lib/modules/2.6.9/build/include/ might not have been configured.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Afther that I noted that the kernel sources was installed in a tar file in the /usr/src directory, so I unpacked it with the "tar -xvjf kernel-source-2.4.18.tar.bz2" command. Then I tried to install the driver using the --kernel-include-path pointing to the /usr/src/kernel-source-2.4.18/include directory but it was unable to install the driver because one file called modversions.h

So, I included the nvidia install log file. Thanks in advance.
Mallec, I hope this is not too late, anyway, you need to install just 2.4.18-bf2.4 kernel headers to install nvidia driver.
apt-get install kernel-headers-2.4.18-bf2.4
then, you point your --kernel-include-path to /usr/src/kernel-headers-2.4.18-bf2.4 (that is the path, as I recall)
