Default -falign-functions=4

I'm too trying to install the src.rpm on a SUSE 8.0 and MSI K7N2G combo.
However, after trying
#rpm --rebuild NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248.src.rpm

I get an error message telling me "Invalid option '-falign-functions=4'

So, following advice from somewhere else on the net, I then change "falign" to "malign" by doing the following:

cd /usr/src/packages/BUILD/nvidia/nvnet/
chmod 777 Makefile
vi Makefile

I then change falign to malign
Save and quit vi

I even vi Makefile again to make sure it saved the changes


cd /home /[username] \\Dir where I keep the src.rpm file
rpm --rebuild NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0248.src.rpm

Only to get the same error again

Could you please tell me what is that I'm doing wrong?

I'm fairly new to Linux, and this is the first time I have to fiddle with drivers. Suse recognised my previous MOBO without any fuss, but it's time to move on.

Thanks a lot
