    CC in path?? Installing Nvidia drivers


    ok I'm trying to install the latest nvidia drivers
    when i run it says umm needs to compile a new kernel interface bla bla
    it says it's missing a cc in path
    and to check gcc is installed
    I checked and gcc is installed.

    Where do I find the file with the path so i can add cc to it?

    I'm using Mandriva 10.2 2005 for i586
    Thanks in advance for any help

    ln -s /usr/bin/gcc /usr/bin/cc

    That creates a a symbolic link so it points to /usr/bin/gcc.

    Hmm.. you might need to install the gcc development package, it's called gcc-devel or something like that.

    The gcc package i have installed is: gcc-cpp-3.4.3-7mdk
    I've found two other gcc packages i can install:
    gcc2.96-cpp-2.96-0.83mdk - The C preprocessor
    gcc-c++-3.4.3-7mdk - c++ support for gcc

    Is one or bothh of those the gcc development tool you're talking about?

    No, in the name of the package there's a -dev or -devel on it.
