Package: nvidia-kernel-source
Version: 190.42-3
Severity: important
Justification: fails to build from source


I upgraded my kernel to 2.6.32rc8 from unstable and I tried to build the
latest nvidia driver against it. The build failed with the following

LD [M]  /usr/src/modules/nvidia-kernel/nvidia.ko
ld: cannot open linker script file
/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-rc8-common/scripts/module-common.lds: No such
/ file or directory
make[6]: *** [/usr/src/modules/nvidia-kernel/nvidia.ko] Error 1
make[5]: *** [modules] Error 2
make[4]: *** [sub-make] Error 2
make[3]: *** [all] Error 2
make[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-rc8-amd64'
make[2]: *** [modules] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/modules/nvidia-kernel'
make[1]: *** [binary-modules] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/modules/nvidia-kernel'
make: *** [kdist_build] Error 2

Maybe the bug is in the kernel-headers package, but I am not sure.
Thanks for any help!
