Question Newest Nvidia Driver Problem

Ok i got this problem with the lastest Nvidia driver "the install script" First it said that it could no find my Kernle"s Headers. So i installed the Kernel-source2.4-20 but iI still got an error and i dont know how to deal with it

Here is the log file the install generated

ERROR: The kernel header file
'/lib/modules/2.4.20/build/include/linux/modversions.h' does not exist.
The most likely reason for this is that the kernel header files in
'/lib/modules/2.4.20/build/include' have not been configured.
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file
'/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions
on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
driver download page at

My system is
Slackware 9.0
Pentium 3 800 mhz
256 ram...

if you need additonnal details you asked

You installed the source files, I think the headers are seperate. It's best to install sources like these to ease all compiling, installs and upgrades

Here is more of a hint for you.......on the install disk in the Slackware directory.....(a) install pkgs kernel IDE and kernel the (d) install pkg kernel headers. these should get you going.
