Suse 10 and resolution-rf


Hi,

i just installed suse 10 on my machine ( p3 800Mhz with Gforce 4 mx 440,LG F900P 19" monitor).

I have install in the past suse 9.1 and 9.3.

As with the older distros when i finish installing, my screen is not full.The disply doesnt get the whole screen.

I went to the xorg.conf,put in the appropriate vertical and horizontal sync.Then i was able to change the rf to 88Hz,but the display is still the same.

I also tried with xvidtune,but when it couldnt change anything,I pressed "up" and the screen wouldnt move up etc...

I have the suse 10.0 from Linux magazine

I tried to install manually the gforce driver but i get the following error(log) :

""
Using: nvidia-installer ncurses user interface
-> License accepted.
-> There appears to already be a driver installed on your system (version: 1.0-
7676). As part of installing this driver (version: 1.0-8178), the existing
driver will be uninstalled. Are you sure you want to continue? ('no' will a
bort installation) (Answer: Yes)
-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you li
ke the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel f
rom the NVIDIA ftp site (ftp://download.nvidia.com)? (Answer: Yes)
-> 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.
-> Performing CC test with CC="cc".
-> gcc-version-check failed:

./usr/src/nv/conftest.sh: line 19: cc: command not found

Could not compile gcc-version-check.c. Please be sure you have your distrib
ution's libc development package installed and that 'cc' is a valid C compil
er name.

If you know what you are doing and want to ignore the gcc version check, sel
ect "No" to continue installation. Otherwise, select "Yes" to abort install
ation, set the CC environment variable to the name of the compiler used to c
ompile your kernel, and restart installation. Abort now? (Answer: Yes)
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file"""

I think i hav installed the gcc,but i cant find any executable "gcc".also it seems like a spelling error (whats the command "cc"?).

What should i do know?

Thank you in advance

If not, you should be able to find it in YaST. Don't forget, SuSE install of nvidia driver is a bit different from normal, it can be done directly from YaST as well as installing a missing gcc!
