BTW, you can get around the different compiler versions deal when compiling the nvidia module by setting IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH before you run the installer, if that is indeed the problem. You can set it by executing this command:

export IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH=1

Then run the installer as normal. But my guess is that's not your problem, since you seem to be using standard slackware packages for everything. I bet you just don't have the toolchain required to build the module installed.

I do know that I have gcc installed though. Same error again, it complains about some line in some .sh-file. Can't remember which. I can find out if it will help.

Ok, well gcc is not in your path. Where did you install it? If you used the default Slackware packages it should be installed at /usr/bin/gcc. You may need to update your path to include gcc's location or else export the location in the CC variable before compiling the module.

export CC=/path/to/gcc

Also Post /var/log/nvidia-installer.log, so we can see exactly what happens.

So, here I am running the installer so that I can post the error log, and the thing actually works! I don't know what of all the things I tried that made it work, but now I have the driver installed. Thanks alot for putting up with my whining
