Default Failed 169.07 driver install (New Linux User)


I am new to this forum, as well as the Linux OS in general. I have tried to install the 169.07 driver I downloaded from the Nvidia site, but I keep getting a specific error. I run it in 'init 3' and I received an error about the 'cc' package no being found in my path. The message tells me to install 'gcc' or something. I am unsure exactly what all of this mean, and was hoping someone could take a minute to explain it to me. I have attached my log file in hopes that it explains my error better than I. Please let me know of any idea you all might have. Thanks.

Please take a few moments to read the readme file found here:


This explains pretty much everything.

You need too install gcc and kernel-source packages.
If you have openSuse 10.3 linux, use: zypper install kernel-source gcc
In debian/ubuntu it's look like: aptget install kernel-dev or something like.

I have the same problems, using suse64 10.3.Its the new driver not recognizing that all dependencies are available. The new user above is probably using one-click install for suse.

the rpms on ftp://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/10.3/x86_64 did get updated on 21.12.2007, but they dont work when i had a fresh install of suse64 10.3. the error that i got was that dependencies are missing: 3ddiag,glibc,18 more. however I checked and I had intalled them, or were available. I think the error with these new files is that they dont recognize that the dependent files are available, because before with 169.04, everything went fine; same clean install; could play counterstrike.

if anyone still has sitting around the 169.04 x86_64 rpms (non-legacy) for suse, I would appreciate either sending me or even uploading somewhere and sending me a link of a zipped version of this. I emailed them but they quickly left for holiday after they replaced the 169.04 with the new version, not leaving up the old version.
