Default Redhat 8 + Nvidia 3123 + tarball src rpms = wtf??

Ok, first of all I have tried all of the methods explained on the forum to no avail. I have installed my kernel src package and was able to build the rpms from their source.

When I try to install the kernel rpm I am getting this error:

Code:
[root@The-Lab i386]# rpm -ivh NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.i386.rpm

I have tried to do "make install" after extracting the tarballs also and I get this error:
