updatign nv drivers states need precompiles kernel src i have src and headers no joy


Hello all once again I have reloaded and am now battling with nvidia drivers. I have a 2.6.8-1-386 kernel i have the apropriate src and headers and binutils and kill x then i su root sh Nvidia**** and it says that I don't have a precompiled kernel source. What can I do to fix this what other info do u need to help (again).

I have the following in my /usr/src

kernel-headers-2.6.8-1 kernel-kbuild-2.6-3
kernel-headers-2.6.8-1-386 kernel-source-2.6.8.tar.bz2

thanx

edit
error message

No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel;
asks if i wanna attempt to download one. I say sure. none found
gcc-version-check failed:
could not compile gcc-version-check.c
if you know what you are doign and want to ignore the gcc version check, select "no" to continue the installation. Otherwise, select yes to about installation, set the cc environment variabnle to the name tof the compiler used to compile you kernel and restart installation. abort? i say no
erorr: if u are using a linux 2.6 kernel, please make sure you have configured kernel sources matching your kernel installed on your system

Maybe

# tar -xjf kernel-source-2.6.8.tar.bz2
# ln -s linux-2.6.8 linux

will help. Just guessing.

Closure

I have gotten this thing whoooooped /woot!

Ok now, I did a reinstall. Then I did

apt-get install kernel-headers(uname -r)

This was gained from a previos post of mine, like the rest of this, Thanx again guys you realy helped again

then once the headers were installed i went to http://kanotix.com/files/ and downloaded the o6111 nvidia script (6111 was the latest Nvidia driver at the time).

ctrl+alt+f1 took me to t1 and logged in as root.

I did a sh install-XXXXXXX (depends on what script u run)

this worked with no problems at all. After the script ran the nvidia logo popped up and bam in like flynn?!?!?!?!?! Yep it worked thanx all who tried and thanx to the guys who helped me with earlier posts that I made. I did do a

vi /etc/X11/XF86Config-4

and changed the 24 depth to "1024x768" for a better resolution but that was all I had to do. Thanx again. Oh yeah Debain, even with my mistakes, has been the best darn distro I have ever tried. I am sticking with it. OMG IT RULES.
