Default Making Progress with Redhat 8

I downloaded and installed the latest 1.0-3123 nVidia graphics drivers from source .tar.gz files. For those of you following along, I have Redhat 8 Workstation installed. The only addition package I had to install to compile (make install) those packages was kernel.source.rpm from CD2.

I'm now posting messages primarily in the nforcershq.com forum, because I have a motherbaord with an nforce chipset. I just posted my /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file and the /var/log/XFree86.0.log file there.

I hope those that can help, especially those of you from nvidia can read my postings there. I'm still having problems, but a lot of progress has been made.
