Default Failed cc sanity check, but same compiler

I compiled kernel and nvidia with the same compiler, but I still get in /var/log/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.

^[[1;31m*** Failed cc sanity check. Bailing out! ***
^[[0mmake: *** [gcc-check] Fehler 1
-> Error.
ERROR: Unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module.



cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.4.22 (root@sesam.stern.de) (gcc-Version 3.3.3 20031206 (prerelease) (Debian)) #5 Mi Dez 10 19:54:59 CET 2003

I use NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run. Maybe IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH helps, but I don't know how to set or use it.

Tanks in advance,

That is odd that it reports that, if the kernel is actually compiled with the same version.

Setting the variable is easy, it's UNIX 101 - just run:

IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH=1 ./nvidia-installer

Wow, this was a simple and quick answer. Thank you, it works already.

Filling IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH just with a 1, is quite easy too, but it could be mentioned in the readme.

Thanks again,
