http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-7167.html - as ever, the latest drivers and instructions are to be found via the Nvidia homepage

Hi again

While during I'm install NVIDIA GeForce Go 6200 driver on Debian, it show the following msgs.
Please help me to solve this problems., what should i do next?? Thank you.


No precomiled 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)?

then press "Yes"

No matching precompiled kernel interface was found on ther NVIDIA ftp site;
this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for
your kernel.

Then Press "OK"

ERROR: Unable to find the kernel source tree for the currently running
kernel. Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files
for your kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you
have the 'kernel-source' rpm installed. If you know the correct
kernel source files are installed, you mayspecify the kernel source
path with the '--kernel-source-path' commandline option.

then press"OK" then quit.

Do a 'uname -a' in a console to get your kernel version. Then, via apt, download the kernel sources package that matches your kernel. Then start the Nvidia install again.
