Nvidia driver


I am a newbie,trying to install the Nvidia driver for my sony vaio sz-110.

During installation i get the error, missing libc distribution package, and check that gcc compiler is installed.

Can someone help please?

If your compiler isn't installed, this isn't a hardware issue (yet, anyway!). Can you tell us what distribution you're using so that someone can advise the packages you need for the gcc compiler?

I am running Mandriva Linux 2006

Yeah, most of my hardware is not recognised by Linux.
