cannot exec cpp0
While doing make install for the NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123 as root, I get the following error: cannot exec 'cpp0': no such file or directory. I tried redownloading the file with the same results. I'm running Mandrake 8.2, the video card is a gforce 4 4200. Any suggestions?

Confirm that cpp0 is not installed
by searching it directly via

" find / -name "cpp0" "

If no explicit result will return, make sure
that your compiler gcc is properly installed.

cpp0 is needed by the prepropressor cpp before the compiling begins.

I searched for the cpp0 file, and got this result: /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i586-mandrake-linux-gnu/3.0.4/cpp0. So I'm assuming it's installed. Is there anything I can change to make the install find it?

Try a "cpp" and look at a possible error message say
"...could not be found" or "installation problem or something like that.
And if an error is reported try a re-install of the precompiled cpp of
your MAndrake distro.
My precompiled cpp has a 'compiled in path' to cpp0.

A search for "cpp" returned the following:

There were no error messages.

Try running cpp.

I just learned that the GCC package is missing from the Mandrake 8.2 cds if you buy them, which I did. I'll download the GCC package and try again.
