Unable to use 440 nvidia driver on ubuntu 20.04 and xps 15 7590

Hi I am trying to use the 440 nvidia driver on my dell xps 15 7590 machine instead of default X.Org X server for my GeForce GTX 1650. When I try to do that I get:

I found out after inspecting the make logs of the driver that since my system had clang as the default compiler it failed to compile the drivers. I changed my default compiler to gcc and the drivers installed correctly. I am not sure why it failed with clang though…
