kernel kernel-header version out of sync


I have installed a new kernel (
(SuSE 11.1)

Unfortunately, kernel-headers did not get updated.
Because I need to compile a nvidia driver, I need
kernel-headers as well updated.

So what should I do?

I should have rebooted before compiling
nvidia driver.

So everything is fine


For your information: yes, you do need the kernel-headers, but they are the same for major versions. i.e. the same for kernel-2.6.27-19 and 2.6.27-21, but different for 2.6.29 for example.
