And another thing: If you have also gcc-4.0 installed you must redirect the 'gcc'-link from gcc-4.0 to gcc-3.4 To do so:
cd /usr/bin
sudo rm gcc
sudo ln -s gcc-3.4 gcc

Hope that helped

I.e. run:
./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8178-pkg1.run --kernel-install-path=/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.12-10-386/

ha ha ok well i tryed to install the driver and while it was building a kernel moduel i got this error. what should i do now?

Error: unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'. this is most likely
beacyes the kernel modyle was built using the wrong kernel source file.
please make sure you have installed the kernel source
files for your kernel and that they are properly configured.

Did you try inicate the kernel-path explicite as I told you? I.e:
./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8178-pkg1.run --kernel-install-path=/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.12-10-386/

look in '/usr/src' for the right dir-name of your headers

Do you run it as root? Otherwise you have to "sudo", of course!

here is what i get when i get the installer to run

No precompiled kernel interface found to match your kernel; would you like the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for you kernel from the nvidia ftp site: so i say yes

and then i get. No matching precompiled kernel interface was found on the nivdia ftp site this means that the installer will ne to compile a kernel interface for your kernel

so i set the directory and file /usr/src/linux-hearders-2.6.12-10-386 and i have taken off the -386 and tryed again but i still get the same thing unable to load the kernel module nvidia.ko

ASDGASDGASDGASDG so now what should i do (

I have no real answer to that. This doesn't make sense for me. What you can try is, to get a new kernel-image (maybe there is something broken??):
sudo apt-get install linux-image-$(uname -r)

this will set up a new entry in your menu.lst of yout grub (your bootloader). So boot this new kernel and try the same thing as before. But I must say, that I don't think, that it will work..., but try. If that doesn't do the trick you may try to compile a kernel for yourself. There are severel tutorials, how to do this for Ubuntu. Use google for that.

But maybe there is someone out there how had the same Problem as you and know of a trick, that doesn't came to my mind...

Good luck!
