Doh! Never double click to install an RPM, always do it from the command line with rpm -Uvh <filename>
I was having the same problem with the same board. Download the nVidia source rpm http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/n...0-0274.src.rpm
and just fyi, since you double clicked to install that rpm, you may be screwed...I had to re-install redhat to get it fixed. It creates problems because it only half installs it.
Anyway, with that source rpm, type rpmbuild --rebuild <filename>
. Then it compiles it and at the end, it tells you the file and location of where it outputs the rpm for you...then do a rpm -Uvh <fullpath and filename>
...then a service network restart
and you should be set.
btw, I could not get the standard RPM to work even at the command prompt...so IMO, the source rpm is the only way to go.
