kernel build with gcc... and nvidia with cc.

hmmm... i dont know how nvidia make files works...
u may try set CC environment.... e.g. bash> CC=gcc ./command-to-fight args...

make either understand
make CC=gcc fight-target

i tryied do smth like that .... it doesn't help for me...

u may try another way
find your cc and gcc
bash> whereis gcc
bash> whereis cc
this shows u all files of that name... commands.. manfiles.. info... and otheres
i suppose that cc it just a symbolic link... u can change it to point to where your gcc is i.e. set into cc symlink to full gcc path of rite version.
if u get few gcc installs... u can check version providing full execfile path...
bash> /path/to/my/gcc --version
of smth like that...
after all... u will build your nvidia with the same compiler.

p.s. same compiler... seems like kernel paranoya...
