Unfortunately, I haven't got a nvidia card, but I'm trying to remember
my experiences some time ago:
I _guess_, you can tell the nvidia-installer to take a certain path as
the source tree. You can find out, how it's done, by using the --help

Otherwise: Why not just using the "nv" or "nouveau" driver by editing
xorg.conf? Generally, the opensource-drivers are causing less problems -
at least the "nv" one. Unfortunately, "nv" doesn't support 3D-hardware

Ich habe gerade keine nvidia-Karte, aber ich versuche, mich an meine
Erfahrungen von früher zu erinnern:
Ich _glaube_, Du kannst dem Nvidia-Installer einen bestimmten Pfad
mitteilen, den er als Source-Tree benutzen soll. Wie das gemacht wird,
findest Du heraus, indem Du die --help Option benutzt.

Andererseits wäre es möglich, die Treiber "nv" oder "nouveau" zu
benutzen. Die Open-Source-Treiber verursachen normalerweise weniger
Ärger - zumindest der "nv". Dummerweise unterstützt "nv" keine

the headers DID match the running kernel, i checked that.

i will try that. But at the moment, i have a very stable system with older
multimedia kernel ...

That's an important thing i did not yet understand. What is the difference
between the kernel-multimedia-amd64 and rt19-20100103? When looking at the
naming of that kernels, the last one seems that rt19 has nothing todo with
multimedia ... and the rt kernel seems to be to be more a snapshot, then a
tested version.... (and remember, i got that rt19 kernel from a privat
repository, not from the official one...)
