Erm, as I've never had this kind of problem I doubt that I can be of any help, but the "cc mismatch", isnt that something to do with the version of the "c" compiler being incorrect?

Would it possibly be that you'd need to update your install of gcc first?

bigjohn is right, I had this problem once with my debian installation
I had installed from woody (and kept the woody kernel), than upgraded to debian sid (kernel remained the same but upgraded to newer gcc version)

so I had a kernel that was compiled with a different version of gcc,
you need to compile the nvidia driver with same gcc version as your kernel, so more probably you will need to upgrade the kernel or downgrade gcc

sweet*amber, you ever compiled your own kernel? For me the only solution was compiling my own kernel so that it was done with the same version of gcc. If you're debian user you should install nvidia drivers before upgrading to sid, for the other distro's I don't know what gcc is used for the prebuilt kernels.
