It may be my mistake. I have a link from some kernel-headers for a kernel I
use for an older version of vmware. The headers were linked
to '/usr/src/linux', wrong headers compared to the new running kernel , wrong
I suppose nvidia's script looked at the '/usr/src/linux/...' path instead of
the matching linux-header path for the running kernel.
