Installer fails to compile kernel module on Fedora 11
I recently upgraded to Fedora 11 from Fedora 10 and I am trying to build a new NVIDIA driver for the new kernel. The NVIDIA installer, as usual, tells me that there are no pre-compiled drivers available for my kernel. Then, when it tries to build one, I get this error:
ERROR: If you are using a Linux 2.4 kernel, please make sure you either have configured kernel sources matching your kernel or the correct set of kernel headers installed on your system. If you are using a Linux 2.6 kernel, please make sure you have configured kernel sources matching your kernel installed on your system. If you specified a separate output directory using either the "KBUILD_OUTPUT" or the "O" KBUILD parameter, make sure to specify this directory with the SYSOUT environment variable or with the equivalent nvidia-installer command line option. Depending on where and how the kernel sources (or the kernel headers) were installed, you may need to specify their location with the SYSSRC environment variable or the equivalent nvidia-installer command line option.
rpm -qa |grep kernel returns the following:
Processor: Intel i7 920
Chipset: Intel X58
Mainboard: Gigabyte GA-EX58-DS4
RAM: 6GB DDR3-1066
Video: Gigabyte GV-N98XPZL-1GH GeForce 9800 GTX+ 1GB (10de:0612 (rev a2))
Anyone else having similar problems? Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Installer fails to compile kernel module on Fedora 11
The 177.82 NVIDIA Linux graphics driver release is too old to be built against recent Linux 2.6 kernels. Please use one of the current NVIDIA Linux graphics driver releases. Please report any bugs in more those driver releases in separate threads (see http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=46678).
