Default SuSE 8.2 Linux SMP kernal

I'm having several dificultys with SuSE 8.2 on my dual AMD athlon MPs 1800+. The main problem is my kernal source files /src/linux they are not the SMP versions. The secound part to this problem is when I run Nvidia installer. I goto install it and it says "No precompiled Kernal interface". I have a GeForce3 Ti200. In my previous SuSE installation before my hdd crash I had no problems with the Nvidia installer.

-> 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 (ftp://download.nvidia.com)? (Answer: Yes)
-> No matching precompiled kernel interface was found on the NVIDIA ftp site;
this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for
your kernel.
-> Kernel include path: '/lib/modules/2.4.20-64GB-SMP/build/include'

You appear to be compiling the NVIDIA kernel module with
a compiler different from the one that was used to compile
the running kernel. This may be perfectly fine, but there
are cases where this can lead to unexpected behaviour and
system crashes.

If you know what you are doing and want to override this
check, you can do so by setting IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH.

In any other case, set the CC environment variable to the
name of the compiler that was used to compile the kernel.

*** Failed cc sanity check. Bailing out! ***
make: *** [gcc-check] Error 1
-> Error.
ERROR: Unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module.
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 www.nvidia.com.

I'm running dual 2200+ MP on suse 8.2 and I'm having some problems as well. check out this link from suse's website for installing nvidia drivers. Don't do the YOU installation method as I have not found that it actually works.


I just got the 4496 version installed. Although I think 43.63 has a little bit higher frame rate with glxgears. with the 4496 version you should do:

@> export IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH=yes
@> ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run

Then don't forget to change the Driver line in the X config file from nv to nvidia. Would you mind posting your glxgears frame rate on here once you get it working? I'm gettin 2100fps now but I think for my system that could be a bit low, since i'm running all my hard drives off a promice ata PCI controller. Thanks in advance
