Default test

With the test option, you have to have given it something to test. So, the command should be something like rpm -Uvh --test RPMname.rpm .

Close to the RPM probably won't be of much help. Unresolved symbols indicate a kernel mismatch and won't work (generally).

If you're trying to install the Nvidia Nforce drivers and have the mismatch- download rhe source rpm and use rpmbuild --rebuild RPMname.src.rpm and then do an rpm install. Otherwise, you only need the network driver so just download the tar.gz code, extract it to a directory and build the one or two things you need (nvnet, maybe sound). Instructions are in various threads on this site.

Good luck
