sounds like you dont have your kernel source installed.

if the nvidia.run file does not have a precompiled driver for you, if compiles one on the fly.
you need your kernel source and gcc installed.

anyway.... if you are having problems with hardware support, you should UPGRADE !
not downgrade... there are very few reasons to downgrade.
