Angry Driver will not build

2.4.21 kernel.
Same problem in 2.4.20 kernel.

gcc 2.95.3

Gets about 30% (according to progress bar - which might be bogus) and dies.

Log file attached.

Hum, you kernel gateway module does not compile... try to update your gcc compiler to a more recent version.

My system gcc is 3.3.1
I use 2.95.3 for building kernels because 2.95.3 is what they (kernel.org) recommend.

And nVidia's installer wants to use the same gcc that the kernel was compiled with (which is the correct thing to do) so I had to use 2.95.3 for the nVidia module (their installer refuses to even try with a newer gcc because a newer gcc is not the gcc my kernel was compiled with)

-=-
Anyway - I solved the issue.
I extracted the archive and edited the Makefile and removed the -Wreturn-type flag.

That's really a bug - nVidia's Makefile should not use that flag with gcc 2.x (and 2.95.3 really is what the kernel should be compiled with. It will not compile with 3.3.x - it will compile with 3.2 but 2.95.3 is tried and true and the kenel hackers specfify that that version will work - so that is what I use)
