my running gcc-version is: Version: 3:3.2.3-0
Read the README. You obviously haven't -- or at least, you haven't seen the section that talks about this problem.
Using a gcc2 compiled kernel with a gcc3 compiled nVidia kernel module WILL
fail, if you do the IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH deal.
Why do people see that "IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH" message and immediately try it, rather than seeing the "look at the README" message and try that? Does anyone have a clue?
Anyway, the solution for you is to recompile your kernel with your system compiler, gcc 3. Or, install gcc 2.95.4 somewhere OTHER than /usr/bin, and export CC=/path/to/the/gcc2/executable
before running the nVidia installer.
