[solved] Problem installing NVidia driver 6629 on linux 2.6.11

i recently move to kernel 2.6.11, from 2.6.10.
Everything works fine, but i can't install nvidia driver. i 've got this error :
ERROR: Unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module.

If i look to nvidia-installer.log, i noticed that there is some errors like this one : /tmp/selfgz2819/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1/usr/src/nv/os-agp.c:345: erro
r: request for member `unbind_memory' in something not a structure or union

So maybe, there is a problem with nvidia driver and 2.6.11. With py previous kernel 2.6.10, everythings worked fine.

Thanks for your help.
