According the Nvidia site I need driver version 180.29. I have not been
able to install this, either with the Nvidia installer or with
module-assistant. Possibly this is because the linux-headers for this
kernel are not installable (because kbuild for it is not available).

Is there any likelihood that a Nvidia kernel module for this kernel will
become available later?
