-> Performing CC sanity check with CC="cc".
-> Performing CC version check with CC="cc".
-> The CC version check failed:
The compiler used to compile the kernel (gcc 4.1) does not exactly match
the current compiler (gcc 4.2). The Linux 2.6 kernel module loader rejects
kernel modules built with a version of gcc that does not exactly match that
of the compiler used to build the running kernel.
If you know what you are doing and want to ignore the gcc version check,
select "No" to continue installation. Otherwise, select "Yes" to abort
install ation, set the CC environment variable to the name of the compiler
used to compile your kernel, and restart installation. Abort now? (Answer:

ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'. This happens most
frequently when this kernel module was built against the wrong or
improperly configured kernel sources, with a version of gcc that
differs from the one used to build the target kernel, or if a driver such as
rivafb/nvidiafb is present and prevents the NVIDIA kernel module from
obtaining ownership of the NVIDIA graphics device(s).

is that enough info?
