Binary NVIDIA drivers complain about gcc

by Daniel Owen on February 11, 2004

If you are installing Nvidia's binary video drivers for linux. You may run into a problem with the installer complaining about differing versions of gcc on your machine and what version the kernel was compiled with. The following should get you past that hurdle

1. First extract the files from the .run file Nvidia offers from here.

[daniel@linuxone][daniel]# sh --extract-only

2. go into the extracted directory and install the drivers

[daniel@linuxone][daniel]# cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1

[daniel@linuxone][NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1]# make install CC=gcc32

The drivers should install without a hitch.
