Impossible To Compile Drivers On Suse 8.2
 
Hi, I have a Suse 8.2 installation and the driver (4496) won't install.
This is what I've found on nvidia-installer.log


If you know what you are doing and want to override this check, you can do so by setting IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH.

In any other case, set the CC environment variable to the name of the compiler that was used to compile the kernel.

*** Failed cc sanity check. Bailing out! ***
make: *** [gcc-check] Error 1


During installation it doesn't find anything on the FTP and try to recompile the driver itself, but it quits.

Any help?
Please.

Search for SuSE the driver version number (4496 I think is the newest) and you should come up with details on how to (this may be located on SuSE's web page)..

If memory serves this is what you do:

export IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH=yes
sh NVIDIA*.run --force-tls=classic

(Don't quote me...)

Note: google is a wonderful thing...

The driver download page has a link going straight to SuSE's NVidia Driver Installer How-To...

RTFM...
