Updated kernel, can't get drivers to compile
 
I had stock RedHat 7.3, I installed the new Nvidia drivers.

I have now upgraded the kernel to... 2.4.20-7 maybe? It's the latest one RH has out for this RH release. When I try to compile new drivers, it tells me that it can't find the source for the new kernel. I installed the source RPM with no problems, why can't it find it? I can't find my log file on my system ATM, so I'll just link over to it in a different thread.

Any ideas?

you also need to update the kernel source and not just the kernel. Once you update that then you should fix your problem. I personally recomend just downloading the kernel source for 2.4.22 or 2.4.23-pre7 and compile it yourself.

Been there, done that. Still have problems.

I believe that is a bit over my head at this time. Only been running Linux for a couple weeks (other than a web server). I suppose I'll get there eventually.
