So, on a completely fresh install, how do I go about getting the NVidia drivers to compile against this (and any, going forward) kernel that isn't supported by NVidia's distribution?
modutils 2.4.19 will load the NVdriver without the -f option. It will still print out a warning because the NVidia module is not GPL, but that can be ignored. So it really looks like a Redhat problem. BTW, the nv_drv.o that Redhat ships with null only supports Geforce4 based cards at 320x200, which really sucks.
