And I get:
Installing NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.src.rpm
warning: user buildmeister does not exist - using root

Segmentation fault


I have all these dependencies installed. Could anyone help me.


I had this issue as well. For me it had to do with upgrading the kernel and trying to compile the kernel nvidia srpm without rebooting to load the updated kernel.

If your upgraded to the new kernel it should look something like this

[root@localhost jason]# rpm -qa |grep kernel
kernel-pcmcia-cs-3.1.31-9
kernel-2.4.18-17.8.0
kernel-source-2.4.18-17.8.0
kernel-2.4.18-14


You will notice that the new kernel-source package overwrote the old one. So my system was running the old kernel and could not reference its source. Rebooting of cource will fix this.

Hope this helps.
