(new to Linux)
I've an ASUS nVidia FX 5950u AGP card
running Debian 4
system says all packages are installed when I do dselect
manually installed cclib .7 today
not sure I did it right
when I do 'sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-100.14.11-pkg1.run"
I get the following:

-> License accepted.
-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you like the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel from the NVIDIA ftp site (ftp://download.nvidia.com)?
-> No matching precompiled kernel interface was found on the NVIDIA ftp site; this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for your kernel.
ERROR: Unable to find the development tool `cc` in your path; please make sure that you have the package 'gcc' installed. If gcc is installed on your system, then please check that `cc` is in your PATH.
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file
'/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions
on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
driver download page at www.nvidia.com
I'm kinda lost I don't understand what it means by "your PATH" or how to make certain that its entered properly in said "PATH".
begin edit *
downloaded deb package "gcc-4.1_4.1.1-21_i386.deb" and did <dpkg -i gcc-4.1_4.1.1-21_i386.deb>
errored on dependency so ...
then had to install "libssp0_4.1.1-21_i386.deb" with <dpkg i- libssp0_4.1.1-21_i386.deb>
then did gcc install successfully.
still gives me the same error.
