Default RealTime kernel / ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'

I am trying to install 100.14.19/x86-64 for a real-time kernel. I get the following error message in /var/log/nvidia-installer.log:

ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'. This happens most
frequently when this kernel module was built against the wrong or
improperly configured kernel sources, with a version of gcc that differs
from the one used to build the target kernel, or if a driver such as
rivafb/nvidiafb is present and prevents the NVIDIA kernel module from
obtaining ownership of the NVIDIA graphics device(s).

Prior to runnining the nvidia install script, I reset the CC var to point to the compiler used to build the kernel, but still get this error. Any suggestions?
