Code:
apt-get -t $NVDIST install nvidia-glx

errors:
Package nvidia-glx is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
sources.list
Code:
#deb file:///cdrom/ sarge main

#deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux testing _Sarge_ - Official Snapshot i386 Binary-2 (20041015)]/ unstable contrib main
#deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux testing _Sarge_ - Official Snapshot i386 Binary-1 (20040806)]/ unstable contrib main


# deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib

deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux testing _Sarge_ - Official Snapshot i386 Binary-1 (20040806)]/ unstable contrib main

i try to use module-assistant to work it. but get trouble
Code:
kernel-headers-2.6.8-2-386:
  Installed: 2.6.8-13
  Candidate: 2.6.8-13
  Version Table:
 *** 2.6.8-13 0
        500 http://http.us.debian.org testing/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
the module-assistant ask me to install kernel-headers-2.6.7-1-386 but i has installed 2.6.8-2-386, why doesn't work???the module-assistant told me that i don't specify kernel-headers to use and i check /var/cache/modass/kernel-headers.avail_version. It just write "none". I think i should know how to specify kernel-headers.

ERROR: Unable to find the kernel source tree for the currently running kernel.
Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your
kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you have the
'kernel-source' rpm installed. If you know the correct kernel source
files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the
'--kernel-source-path' commandline option.

Do you have the source for the kernel your using, If you do did you try running the nvidia install with --kernel-source-path?
