Nvidia driver version question - 1 click install vs nvidia download

http://forums.opensuse.org – I noticed that the Nvidia driver installed by the 1 click install is version 195 whilst the driver on Nvidia's web site is 256. Is there any reason why the 1 click is so far behind? I tried installing the Nvidia driver the hard way on my ION based Acer Revo but it fails when compiling saying something about (very loosely paraphrasing here) "gcc is not of the same version as what the kernel was compiled with". But that's for another thread. The 1 click installed fine. (Distributions)
