Make sure you have the compiler installed and a copy of your kernel source or header.

sounds pretty straight-forward to me, install the libc development package

i thought that as well - but i CANNOT find it within my distribution (aurox 10.2) - is it called "libc"? or similar?

i have installed the compiler i guess - but not the header files i guess ... how do i find them???

I'm having the same problem with the libc error. I'm running Fedora Core 4. The exact error from the nvidia-installer log is

ERROR: You do not appear to have libc header files installed on your system.
Please install your distribution's libc development package.

I found a couple of helpful pages, but still haven't gotten it to install

http://www.gmpf.de/index.php/NVidia:...n#Requirements
ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Li...667/README.txt

Using help from the 2 I'm 99% sure I've got all the right stuff installed. There is an instance where the versions I've got are newer than recommended. glibc specifically, which the /lib/libc.so.6 returns the following version info. 2.3.5, higher than the version recommended, 2.0, but I see I've got the glibc-2.0 compatibility add-on. (whatever that means)

GNU C Library development release version 2.3.5, by Roland McGrath et al.
Compiled by GNU CC version 4.0.0 20050525 (Red Hat 4.0.0-9).
Compiled on a Linux 2.4.20 system on 2005-05-30.
Available extensions:
GNU libio by Per Bothner
crypt add-on version 2.1 by Michael Glad and others
Native POSIX Threads Library by Ulrich Drepper et al
The C stubs add-on version 2.1.2.
BIND-8.2.3-T5B
NIS(YP)/NIS+ NSS modules 0.19 by Thorsten Kukuk
Glibc-2.0 compatibility add-on by Cristian Gafton
GNU Libidn by Simon Josefsson
Thread-local storage support included.


Is there a trick to passing the nvidia installer a parameter that will help it locate the glibc files its looking for?

One line at the CL fixed it...

yum install glibc-devel glibc-headers glibc-profile glibc-utils

then the install went fine. (I'd already gone back and gotten the source for my kernel build, and made sure my compiler was the same one that the kernel had been built with.)

I'm pretty ashamed that I didn't already have the gcc development packages. Normally I install about every package under the sun when I first install, but this time I installed more sparsely.
