Re: problem installing nvidia-glx on a debian testing with 2.6.32 kernel
I guess you're in Squeeze or probably Lenny, right?
Remove everything nvidia-related (source packages, modules built or
installed, non-free binary drivers, etc.), activate sid in your
sources.list, and then try again. Be sure to have the correct kernel
headers available by doing m-a prepare for the proper kernel (which is
now the same in both squeeze and sid). Then try installing from sid. I
had the same problem as yours. The build process failed without any
understandable errors but when I used the packages in sid it worked like
First install headers for you kernel, then activate sid if not already
activated, then go through downloading and building the module with
module-assistant. Then install nvidia-glx (from sid) if it does not get
installed during the process of module building and installing. The
nvidia-settings and nvidia-xconfig packages can also be very useful.
