gcc versions out of sync
I recently upgraded my video card to a NVIDIA GeForce 2 card. Naturally, I wanted a Linux driver for this card.
The first thing I did was download an installer program from the NVIDIA site. That program asked if I wanted to have the driver compiled. I said yes. The program then complained that the version of gcc on my system was different than the version that was used to compile my kernel.
The README suggested I run:
To get the version of gcc that was used to compile my kernel. The answer was 3.2.1
Then it suggested I run
To get the version of gcc that's currently on my system. That version is 3.2.2.
I recompiled my kernel, thinking that it would now be compiled under gcc 3.2.2. I rebooted and tried to compile the nvidia module. It gave me the same error message.
Is there a way for me to:
a) Jury-rig GNUmake into ignoring the fact that the kernel and gcc versions are out of sync.
b) Fix the kernel compilation to use 3.2.2
c) Something else I haven't thought of
