apparently i have to specify the compiler version environment to compile the
nvidia src against my current kernel because it and the kernel were compiled
with different compilers, i'm guessing this is to do with gcc 2.96 versus
gcc3.0? which i know mandrake has been moving to, this prompts some questions:
1. how to specify the compiler a) permanently b) just for that compile
2. how (if possible) to compile against a different kernel than the one that
is running - i assume that the kernel-source and/or kernel-headers for the
particular kernel have to be installed -
3. can i have two kernel-headers packages installed?
4. does the above have to be done by altering makefiles or whatever or are
there options that can be passed to 'rpm --rebuild' ?
