Question ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module ‘nvidia.o’

New Linux User here. I am trying to install the NVIDia Display driver. However during installation, that is after I have read the disclaimer, I get an error saying

"ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module ‘nvidia.o’. This is the most likely because the kernel module was built using the wrong kernel source files. Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your kernel…

…If you know the correct kernel source files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the ‘—kernel-source-path’ commandline option."

I used the command "rpm -qa | grep kernel" which tells me Kernel- Where do I go from here? How do I get the installer to recognize this kernel, if it is the right kernel at all.

I just found out that in /usr/src, i only have one file which is RPM. While reading the post, some say to type
sh --Kernel-source-path /usr/src/(whatever)

But in my case, i don't have a (whatever) be it linux-
