I've downloaded 71.86.06 NVidia drivers but when I try to install, I get a message:No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you like the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel from the NVIDIA ftp site (ftp://download.nvidia.com)? I tell it to, but it can't find them. It says it wants to compile new files, I say yes, then it fails with:
