Default nVidia8756 driver install problem

Hello !

(Ubuntu distribution)

Did all my best to install this driver >, and actually a micro-step after another, i went forward. Until now !

Have a look :

Using: nvidia-installer ncurses user interface
-> License accepted.
-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you li
ke the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel f
rom the NVIDIA ftp site ( (Answer: No)
-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; this means
that the installer will need to compile a new kernel interface.
-> Performing CC test with CC="cc".
-> gcc-version-check failed:

You appear to be comiling the NVIDIA kernel module with a different compiler
than the one that was used to compile the running kernel. The Linux 2.6 ker
nel module loader rejects kernel modules built with a version of gcc that do
es not exactly match that of the compiler used to build the running kernel.
The compiler used to compile the kernel was gcc 3.4; the current compiler is
gcc 4.0.

If you know what you are doing and want to ignore the gcc version check, sel
ect "No" to continue installation. Otherwise, select "Yes" to abort install
ation, set the CC environment variable to the name of the compiler used to c
ompile your kernel, and restart installation. Abort now? (Answer: No)
ERROR: Unable to find the development tool `make` in your path; please make
sure that you have the package 'make' installed. If make is installed
on your system, then please check that `make` is in your PATH.
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file
'/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions
on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
driver download page at
The problem is that I DID install gcc 3.4 and gcc paquage !
So the log doesn't help me anymore

I would be really found of any kind of help
