Get the source RPM. I think the latest kernel update from RH is -19.8.0, not -18.8.0, so there is a version mismatch. Check the readme for how to do the install from source RPM. It's an extra step of "rpmbuild --rebuid source.rpm"...

Cheers,

And make sure you have kernel-source-2.4.18-19.8.0 installed and configured as well.

Configure it by looking in the /usr/src/linux/configs/ directory for something that matches your hardware, copying it to ../.config, going to /usr/src/linux, and running make mrproper oldconfig dep.

i tried rebuilding the source rpm
rpmbuild --rebuild NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.src.rpm
and i get this at the end of the output:

RPM build errors:
user buildmeister does not exist - using root
group buildmeister does not exist - using root
user buildmeister does not exist - using root
group buildmeister does not exist - using root
Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.24123 (%install)

whats going on?

Those errors shouldn't matter... as long as you got a .rpm file in the output directory, you should be good. If you didn't, then there were other errors that you haven't posted. ;)
