Has anyone compiled a kernel-2.4.20 with gcc-3.3 to use with nvidia drivers? I could not. Any advise will be appreciated.
How do you install nvidia drivers if there is a kernel mismatch. I have a distro with gcc-3.3 but without kernel compilation I cannot install the drivers. Thanks for the help in advance.

Kernel 2.4.20 has a ton of issues with gcc 3.3.

Apparently gcc 3.3 removed support for a bunch of deprecated features (or maybe it's just pickier than old gcc versions), and the kernel uses those features. Multiline strings is one of them.

There was a patch posted to lkml a while back that fixes certain issues.

2.4.21-rc6 (the latest as of today) also has a few compilation fixes for that compiler. You might try that kernel.

Which distro is shipping with gcc 3.3, BTW?

1. Solved the problem of kernel mismatch with your help. I have a Nvidia Geforec 4 mmx 440 card , kernel-2.4.20, compiler-gcc-3.3. Kernel and modules compiled with gcc-323.Searched forum and found your comments re kernel mismatch and nv driver.Executed "export IGNORE_KERNEL_MISMATCH=1" and run the installer. Installation successfull and the driver
works very well. Thanks again bwkaz.
2.The distro(gcc-3.3) is lfs based on lfs book 4.1put together myself. Cheated only on one package,glibc-232 which was precompiled slackpak. The rest fell into place as per book with the latest base packages.
3. Also made my 1st purelfs successfully but could use only gcc-3.2.3 .Regards and best wishe bwkaz.
