Default Re: 2.6 installer for Version: 1.0-5336

The version check is not a function of the gcc versions the installer does or doesn't know about, it's a function of which compiler was used to build the kernel (i.e. the compiler listed in /proc/version vs. cc -v). Note that the NVIDIA cc version check is more forgiving than Linux 2.6's module version magic mechanism is, which requires that the exact same version of gcc be used for loadable modules, rather than a version considered compatible by the NVIDIA driver; modules failing the kernel's test are rejected by the loader.
