Nvidia RH8 driver problem

Nvidia RH8.0 driver problem on Dell 8100 ( post #1)

I can't seem to install the new Redhat 8.0 Nvidia drivers on my Dell 8100 notebook.

I have downloaded the following drivers:

In other posts, people seem to do a rebuild on the NVIDIA_kernel file but this is only possible if it's a .src.rpm? And this is only the case with the NVIDIA_GLX file as you can see above?

I get a message that the driver can't find the nvidia kernel module and the following messages:

* Failed to load module "pex5" (module does not exist,0)
* Failed to load module "xie" (module does not exist,0)
* Failed to load module "glx" (module does not exist,0)
* NVIDIA(0): **Aborting**
* Screens found, but none have a usable configuration

I am using a XF86Config-4 file that was working with Redhat 7.3?

Any help greatly appreciated,
