Fedora, Kernel 2.6, Nvidia driver install issues.
Posted 19 December 2003 - 09:11 AM
You appear to be building the NVIDIA kernel module with a
compiler different from the one that was used to build the
running kernel. This may be perfectly fine, but there are
cases where this can lead to unexpected behaviour and
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 build the kernel.
make: *** [cc-sanity-check] Error 1
I'm guessing this is due to the fact that the kernel rpm was i686 and the kernel source rpm was i386 and so there's a difference in the headers apparently. If any one might be able to make some suggestions on how to make these drivers work it would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I then ran across another post that suggests that you run make in the NVIDIA-Lin.../usr/src/nv and then run make install in the root of that NVIDIA-Lin... directory in order to put everything where it should be. I attempted this revision of the install and changed my XF86config again and still no luck.
Does any one have any other suggestions? I've tried both processes with both the 4496 and the 4620 drivers with no luck.
