Default Pain in the rear....Help

I have tried to install the lastest driver 4496. Used the "IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH=YES" and " IGNORE_CC-MISMATCH=1" commands before the shell install stript in init 3. Niether one worked. I'm getting a failure on installing the nvidia shell to the kernel. Here are my files. Help if you can and any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Im running a GeForce 3 TI 200. Suse 8.2. Latest kernel.

It's not about cc, but the kernel headers... from your log:

Quote:
'kernel-source' rpm installed. If you know the correct kernel header
files are installed, you may specify the kernel include path with the
'--kernel-include-path' commandline option.
-> Kernel module load error: ./usr/src/nv/nvidia.o: kernel-module version mismatch
./usr/src/nv/nvidia.o was compiled for kernel version 2.4.20-4GB
while this kernel is version 2.4.20-4GB-athlon.
Do you have the source tree for your current running kernel? If so you
can use --kernel-include-path=/path/to/your/linux-2.4.20-4GB-athlon-source
and it should go.

Are you running a stock kernel, then? Is it the kernel that came with your
Suse distro? If it is, the proper headers should be installed, I presume.

Do you have a source tree in /usr/src/linux?

If not, you may need to install the kernel source rpm from CD, and configure
it to satisfy the module code.

According to what I've read; on Suse, if you have the kernel source installed,
you can, as root:

# cd /usr/src/linux; make cloneconfig; make dep

This should leave you with a properly prepared source tree for the Nvidia
module to compile against.

Good luck!
