And when it was finally installed and being aware that kernel 3.8.1-2
was available I installed that after which I had to compile the nVidia

"going all the way" with the latest stalbe kernel).

So, both make and gcc are important.

Hell, what degree of difficulty is there to add a 358Kb and a 4Kb file
for make and gcc, respectively, to the default install list?

It's a little more than a few KB's?

The following NEW packages are going to be installed:
binutils gcc gcc47 glibc-devel linux-glibc-devel make site-config

7 new packages to install.
Overall download size: 11.5 MiB. After the operation, additional 52.2
MiB will be used.

Why not add the kernel-devel files as well... aren't they needed as
well for building...

Your already installing the next kernel as well, so it seems a moot
point since your not running the released kernel, I only have
3.7.10-1.1-desktop installed on my test system?

PS, I use gimp so the help file is useful, I do have an nvidia system
but it's not running at present...
