Default Re: problem rebuilding

problem is when rpmbuild --rebuild?
or just installing rpm?

You need to be root(superuser) to do all

you need space in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS and /var/lib directories, in /tmp too

Be more detailed. I am a RedHat user, not engineer

Do this:
1: copy Nvidiaxxxx.src.rpm to /usr/src/redhat/SRPMS
2: from that directory do rpmbuild --rebuild NVidiaxxxx.src.rpm (one file each time better )
3: go to /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386
4: ls -al ( if there is any file, rebuild has gone fine )
5: install files , both at the same time ( rpm -i NV*.rpm)
6: if all is OK, edit your /etc/X11/XF86Config manually
