Need to install kernel-headers so I can install nvidia graphics driver.

Problem is synaptic only shows headers available up to 2.6.7.

Have I missed something?

Be sure to tell the people how you figured it out:

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-2.6-386

which provides the latest available. Replace 386 with whichever processor you're using.

Actually the best way is to use:

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`

which will ensure you get the correct headers for your current kernel.
