I installed binutils. I tried to install the driver again and got some new error messages. They read as follows:
'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
Then I get an error message that tells me there is a temporary DNS error and it couldn't download anything. I have tried over a span of a couple of days, and get the same error. Then I get the message:
'Unable to find kernel header files. If you know kernel header files are installed you may specify the kernel include path with the '--kernel-include-path' commandline option.'
What can I do to fix these problems? Thanks for the replies.
