Wink 5336 under debian

Hi all,

I have debian 3.0r1 install on a box.
I have downloaded and install the 5336 drivers for my Geforce 4 with nvidia chipset.

# sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run
gives error: ...make sure u have installed the kernel source files for your kernel....

I have then:
# apt-cdrom add
# apt-get install kernel-headers-`uname -r`

in my dir /usr/src, i've got afterwards: kernel-headers-2.2.20-compact

so I:
# sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg2.run --kernel-include-path=/usr/src/kernel-headers-2.2.20-compact/include

but message:
gcc version check failed

Default Re: 5336 under debian

You need to install the kernel source for your running kernel. As it will require certain files in the source code to recomplie the drivers.

I run RedHat Enterprise 3 WS, RH9 and Fedora Core 1. And with all these installations I also include the kernel source as part of the install, incase I need to recompile drivers or any other software that needs it etc.
