Default NFORCE installer error

Hello. I've installed the NFORCE installer many times, and its worked wonderfully. I use Slackware 10.0 and kernel 2.6.10. When I try to run the NFORCE-0292.sh, it gets to the point where it needs to build its own kernel, and it just exist with ERROR: Kernel not built.
On the same machine , with the same distribution, the installer works successfully using kernel 2.4.26. So it must be a kernel problem. Does anyone know what kernel values are necessary when installing NFORCE?

Wich is the exact error you have?. It could be that you don't have the kernel source or kernel headers, try installing them.
I don't remember well but I think it is some error with some kernels, and you must change a line in some file. Look for it on other posts or search in google. Sorry I can't help you more .

does your nvidia-nforce-installer.log tells you something about to many parameters in call pci_save_state and pci_resume_state ?

Extract the driver (NFORCE-Linux-x86-1.0-0292-pkg1.run -x) and find these method calls in the file ./nvnet/nvenet.c. Remove the last parameter of the call and try again.
