Installing problem of NVIDIA


I had tried to intall NVIDIA IA32 driver(6629-pkg1) under exiting X environment. during the installing, i get a trouble about this message: "No precompiled kenerl interface was found to match your kenerl. Need to install the development tool 'cc' which is package 'gcc'." how can i do???

You can download gcc from gcc.gnu.org and try compiling from source but most distrobutions have this program as a precompiled package and since your asking this I'd suggest you hit up your distros website and search for gcc there

I can provide a very easy answer if you tell me what distro you are running.

what happens after that?
doesn't it ask you to automatically download a kernel interface from nvidia's ftp site?
and after that one more thing:
doesn't it ask you if you want nvidia driver's installer to compile your kernel in way that it works???

That should be happening...

I don't use debian but I know they use the apt-get command and I'm pretty sure you can use that to install packages from the internet. I think it would be something like
apt-get install gcc
but dont quote me on that I could be wrong. Try it though and if it installs gcc you should be good to go with the NVIDIA installation

i had already install gcc from cd-rom that command is "apt-get install gcc", but how can i up-to-date from internet by commands?

@_@ the danger problem still exist, the error messages show that, Unable to find the kernel source tree for the currently running kernel, ......, do i need to install kernel source? I had used this command "apt-get install kernel-source" whereas nvidia driver has problem. Beforce I had tried this, "apt-get install gcc", "apt-get install make". but still get problem.

then if the installer didn't find it to download, let it do the kernel part for you..
it'll only take some minutes..

nvidia-installer.log(part of it)
Code:
Using: nvidia-installer ncurses user interface
WARNING: Skipping the runlevel check (the utility `runlevel` failed to run).
-> 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.
ERROR: Unable to find the kernel source tree for the currently running kernel. 
       Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your
       kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you have the
       'kernel-source' rpm installed.  If you know the correct kernel source
       files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the
       '--kernel-source-path' commandline option.
why do i get this problem?
