-> License accepted.
-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you li
ke the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel f
rom the NVIDIA ftp site (ftp://download.nvidia.com)? (Answer: No)
-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; this means
that the installer will need to compile a new kernel interface.
ERROR: You do not appear to have libc header files installed on your system.
Please install your distribution's libc development package.

"README available on the Linux driver download page at www.nvidia.com."

did you read the README file
