ke the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel f
rom the NVIDIA ftp site (ftp://download.nvidia.com)? (Answer: Yes)
-> No matching precompiled kernel interface was found on the NVIDIA ftp site;
this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for
your kernel.

Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license
and it has unresolved symbols. The module may be trying to access
GPLONLY symbols but the problem is more likely to be a coding or
user error. Contact the module supplier for assistance, only they
can help you.
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file
'/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions
on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
driver download page at www.nvidia.com.

Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your

The kernel source files for your running kernel must be available... and it must find the correct files. It may have used the wrong source files. If you have compiled the kernel in that source tree, or cleaned your source tree since compiling it (make clean)... after you compiled the current running kernel then you will have to reconfigure the source tree to match the running kernel (i.e. place the correct .config file, make oldconfig, and make dep).

If you did not compile the kernel... then you need to install the Slackware kernel sources that were used to compile the kernel. I cannot lead you in doing this, search for guidance on the Slack site or a larger forum such as www.linuxquestions.org.

If you are certain you have the correct kernel sources, and they are prepared (config and dep) matching the kernel you want to build a module for... then you may need to specify the literal directory to use when running the installer.
Use the --kernel-source-path /path/to/source option. This defaults to /usr/src/linux and in your case probably used /usr/src/linux-2.4.25 (symlinked as /usr/src/linux -> /usr/src/linux-2.4.25).
