Default Still not working...

I am using GCC 3.2 with the Redhat 7.3.94 beta. I have compiled the nVIDIA kernel module with GCC 3.2 from the source RPM. The module refuses to load.

1:NVIDIA_kernel ########################################### [100%]
/lib/modules/2.4.18-11smp/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver: The module you are trying to load (/lib/modules/2.4.18-11smp/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver) is compiled with a gcc
version 2 compiler, while the kernel you are running is compiled with
a gcc version 3 compiler. This is known to not work.
/lib/modules/2.4.18-11smp/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.18-11smp/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver failed
/lib/modules/2.4.18-11smp/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver: insmod NVdriver failed

I have tried setting the CC environment variable as suggested. That does not work.

I have checked for old object files. There are none.

Evidently the driver can be "forced", but that is a hacky solution.

Any plans to build a version of the source RPMs that will install cleanly? (I use a dual athalon system so I tend to build from source.)
