Default Re: gcc 4.1 problem building module

This problem is caused by additional warnings generated by gcc 4.1 for certain Linux kernel header files, it should go away if/when these kernel header files are fixed. Meanwhile, you can try the attached patch to work around this problem (the steps needed to patch the Linux/x86 driver are analogous to those below):

# sh /path/to/ --extract-only
# cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8174-pkg2
# patch -p0 < /path/to/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-8174-1438624.diff.txt
# ./nvidia-installer -n
