Have you installed the NVIDIA driver on SUSE 9.0

My attempt to install the NVIDIA driver failed with this error message:

"Error: The kernel header file’/usr/src/linux/include/linux/modversions.h’ does not exist. The most likely reason for this is that the kernel header file in ‘/usr/src/linux/include’ has not been configured."

I thought maybe the SUSE directory hierarchy was different, so I did a "find -name modversions.h". It was reported in a number of directories under /usr/src/linux- I then tried telling the nvidia-installer to use the linux- directory, via the --kernel-include-path=[KERNEL INCLUDE PATH] option. That gave me an error saying it could not find that path.

I don't know if my directory hierarchy is the problem, or if "modversions.h not being configured" is the problem.

Have you been through this, successfully?
