Default Error when installing graphics driver in opensuse 11.0.

When trying to install the driver in console mode, I get the following message: Error: The kernel header file ' /lib/modules/ - 1.1 - pae/build/include/linux/kernel.h does not exist. The most likely reason for this is that the kernel source path ' /lib/modules/ - 1.1 - pae/build is incorrect. Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your kernel and that they are properly configured; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you have the ' kernel source ' or ' kernel - devel ' RPM installed. If you know the correct kernel source files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the ' --kernel-source-path ' command line option.

I have already installed kernel - source, gcc and make, and downloaded the driver. Then I exit X (Ctrl - Alt - F1)
and as root I type: init 3 and type ' sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-177.82-pkg1.run '.

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you/

Run all your system updates first. Then install the driver.
