Default trouble to install nvidia driver on debian lenny

Hello,

I have troubles in installing the nvidia driver 100.14.11 on debian lenny with kernel 2.6.22-2-686. It seems that the compiler used for the kernel (gcc 4.1) does not exactly match the current compiler (gcc 4.2). although I don't think that's here my only problem in installing the driver, so I need help please.

Here is my nvidia-installer.log:

Have you tried the below prior to building? Obviously you'll need gcc-4.1 installed, I'd assume it's in the repos in Lenny listed as 'gcc-4.1', I'm etch here.

Code:
export CC="gcc-4.1"

I see:
Installation of the NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86
(version: 100.14.19) is now complete.

Why do you believe this is not the case?

Because I experienced troubles during the installation and I tried to use this driver but it doesn't work. I had to put back nv driver instead of nvidia driver in the xorg.conf.

You were originally reporting an installation problem. Now you're reporting some other problem. Its not clear what the actual issue is, or how it can be reproduced. Also, you've not followed the forum sticky post instructions.
