Re: NVIDIA - Compile driver



If you read the error message it give you in the log it tells you want
to do. Either set the IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH environment variable or set the
CC environment variable to the compiler used to compile the kernel.
Personally I do the first (ie. export IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH=1).
