The NVIDIA driver doesn't install when it wants to compile a kernel
module and you don't have the source in the default location.
Do NOT use the /usr/src/linux area! This area has a (usually
incomplete) set of kernel headers that are used by the library header
files. They should match the library, and not get messed up by
whatever the kernel-du-jour happens to be.
Who or what puts header files into /user/src/linux? It didn't exist
before I created it.
