You should be able to install the "kernel-devel" package that
corresponds to that kernel. "apt-get install kernel-devel" should show
you what's available. 

But I don't think the Nvidia drivers will work with the "rrt" kernel, I
think somebody else alread tried and was having issues. Apparently it
did work with the "rdt" kernel.
