FC3 test1 & nvidia driver


Just installed FC3 test1 and the best screen res I can get from TNT2 is 800x600. Tried 2 install nvidia driver 6111, this is what the log says: nvidia-installer log file '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log'
creation time: Tue Aug 31 13:28:24 2004

option status:
license pre-accepted : false
update : false
force update : false
expert : false
uninstall : false
driver info : false
no precompiled interface: false
no ncurses color : false
query latest driver ver : false
OpenGL header files : false
no questions : false
silent : false
X install prefix : /usr/X11R6
OpenGL install prefix : /usr
Installer install prefix: /usr
kernel source path : (not specified)
kernel install path : (not specified)
proc mount point : /proc
ui : (not specified)
tmpdir : /tmp
ftp site : ftp://download.nvidia.com

Using: nvidia-installer ncurses user interface
-> License accepted.
-> 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.
-> Kernel source path: '/lib/modules/2.6.8-1.533/build'
-> Performing cc_version_check with CC="cc".
-> gcc-version-check failed:

./usr/src/nv/conftest.sh: line 9: cc: command not found
Could not compile gcc-version-check.c

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: No)
ERROR: ./usr/src/nv/conftest.sh: line 9: cc: command not found
If you are using a Linux 2.4 kernel, please make sure
you either have configured kernel sources matching your
kernel or the correct set of kernel headers installed
on your system.

If you are using a Linux 2.6 kernel, please make sure
you have configured kernel sources matching your kernel
installed on your system. If you specified a separate
output directory using either the "KBUILD_OUTPUT" or
the "O" KBUILD parameter, make sure to specify this
directory with the SYSOUT environment variable or with
the appropriate nvidia-installer command line option.
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file
'/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions
on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
driver download page at www.nvidia.com.

Would appreciate any help. Thanks

If you are using a Linux 2.6 and or 2.4 kernel, please make sure
you have configured kernel sources matching your kernel
installed on your system. You need the kernel sources for the driver to be built into your kernel,You can find the source for the kernel you are using or compile your own.I think that is right,hope this helps!

recompile your kernel...
its always better to compile drivers with the same compiler used to compile the kernel.
