i really don't understand

btw, hpx, you need to do make modules_install iirc. may be dumb to mention this, but also make sure it's built as a module and not into the kernel.
Well, just a bit more complicated than that (you have to use "clean" kernel from kernel.org), but that's not the point. It takes a lot of time to compile, there is always a possibility of screwing up, etc. RPM are just more conveniant, and why not use them?
