Default problem compiling on 2.6.11.6

I just downloaded a new kernel, 2.6.11.6, extracted to /usr/src/linux/ , compiled it, installed the images, and ran make mrproper.
then I downloaded NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7167-pkg1.run
and tried to compile the module but it said that my sources are not
configured.
Setting kernel-source-path by hand to /usr/src/linux didn't change anything.

here's output from install log:

Using: nvidia-installer ncurses user interface
-> License accepted.
-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you like the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel from the NVIDIA ftp site (ftp://download.nvidia.com)? (Answer: No)
-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; this means that the installer will need to compile a new kernel interface.
-> Kernel source path: '/lib/modules/2.6.11.6/source'
-> Performing CC test with CC="cc".

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 appropriate nvidia-installer command line option.
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.

Try again,but don't clean kernel source tree(do not run make mrproper).
Reboot to your new kernel,and then install nvidia driver.
