I am attempting to install the nVidia proprietary kernel module (version 319.37), and when I attempt to do so, it gives me the error:

ERROR: Kernel configuration is invalid.
include/generated/autoconf.h or include/config/auto.conf are missing.
Run 'make oldconfig && make prepare' on kernel src to fix it."

I then attempted to perform a make oldconfig and make prepare. I got the following:

[root@sager 3.12.6-300.fc20.x86_64]# make oldconfig && make prepare
scripts/kconfig/conf --oldconfig Kconfig
# configuration written to .config
scripts/kconfig/conf --silentoldconfig Kconfig
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `/usr/src/kernels/3.12.6-  300.fc20.x86_64/arch/x86/syscalls/syscall_32.tbl', needed by `arch/x86/syscalls/../include/generated/uapi/asm/unistd_32.h'.  Stop.
make: *** [archheaders] Error 2

If it is not clear from the preceding output, I am running Fedora 20 with kernel version

Using the binary blob is not recommended. Please use the rpmfusion package.
