You surely refer to the official nvidia driver. Why not just try to install the precompiled nvidia module provided in non-free. I am runing that driver without any problems so far.

I hope you mean the NFORCE one - my problem is getting onto the 'net; graphic fanciness is way down on my list. Last time I did that it didn't work, but it is worth trying again.

Another option IMHO would be simply to build your kernel with a new gcc.

Urm. Yes, in fact I was trying that without much success. It still leaves me with the question of just WHAT 'gcc' I can put up that doesn't have a piece missing. Can't someone point out what is broken that critical module(s) are unavailable from at least two "current" compiler package-sets?
