Unhappy Redhat 8.0 nvidia


I have redhat 8 installed with the kernel update. (yes, i am a )

I dowloaded the file NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.src.rpm from the nvidia site.

I have the kernel development package installed.

i type rpmbuild --rebuild NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.src.rpm

but it doesnt work?

make: *** [nv.o] Error 1
+ exit 0
+ umask 022
+ cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
+ cd NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191
+ LANG=C
+ export LANG
+ rm -f /tmp/files.lst
+ '[' -z '' ']'
++ uname -r
+ export TARGET_KERNEL=2.4.18-18.8.0
+ TARGET_KERNEL=2.4.18-18.8.0
+ '[' -d /lib/modules/2.4.18-18.8.0/kernel ']'
+ INSTALLPATH=/lib/modules/2.4.18-18.8.0/kernel/drivers/video
+ mkdir -p /var/tmp/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0//lib/modules/2.4.18-18.8.0/kernel/drivers/video
+ install -m 0444 nvidia.o /var/tmp/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0//lib/modules/2.4.18-18.8.0/kernel/drivers/video
install: cannot stat `nvidia.o': No such file or directory
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.94911 (%install)
user buildmeister does not exist - using root
group buildmeister does not exist - using root

Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.94911 (%install)



that is a taste of what i get.

Any help would be appreciated, or a redirection to a different post? (I have looked)

a taste of what you get or all of wat you get? Personally i always recommend compiling the real source, tar.gz it's so much more reliable and get-on-with-ity

take a look at the nvidia linux forum (accesable from nvidia.com)
There are some pretty good how to's posted there which should help you along.

Thanks for your replies...i found out that it was just that i had updated my kernel but not the source code for it hahaha, im an idiot.

anyway, I have a few more newbie questions:
-Where do I get pico from?!?
-Where is there a good guide on tuning my kernel?

Thanks again...im learning more every day!
