Unhappy Impossible To Compile Drivers On Suse 8.2

Hi, I have a Suse 8.2 installation and the driver (4496) won't install.
This is what I've found on nvidia-installer.log


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


During installation it doesn't find anything on the FTP and try to recompile the driver itself, but it quits.

Any help?
Please.

Default Impossible To Compile Drivers On Suse 8.2

Search for SuSE the driver version number (4496 I think is the newest) and you should come up with details on how to (this may be located on SuSE's web page)..

If memory serves this is what you do:

export IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH=yes
sh NVIDIA*.run --force-tls=classic

(Don't quote me...)

Note: google is a wonderful thing...

The driver download page has a link going straight to SuSE's NVidia Driver Installer How-To...

RTFM...
