Re: Linux Core distribution and Geforce driver.
Ok, so you can compile other programs? Weird indeed, then the compiler should be installed properly. BTW, the distro you are using seems targetted to more advanced users, and since you say you are pretty new to Linux, maybe you should try an easier one like Fedora or at the most Slackware or Gentoo?
Anyway, I don't really see why the compile will fail if you are able to compile other programs. You COULD do 'export IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH=2' and then run the installer again, to see if that solves your problems, but I've heard that that might not always be a good idea.
