NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.src.rpm is a source code but not a executable, so -ivh is not correct.

You should compile it by "rpmbuild --rebuild NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.src.rpm"

Then itstall it by "rpm -ivh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.i386.rpm"

After installed NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.i386.rpm, then you can install "rpm -ivh NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4191.i386.rpm"

NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4191.i386.rpm is depended on compiled NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.src.rpm

Don't worry about it. I install it also in text mode and in text mode is correct. The installation Guide also said that you have to exit X-Windows to install the driver.


I forgot if I have or not the same error before.
I think if you are installing by src.rpm, then make sure your have same executable kernel and source code install. Exit X-Windows and reboot to text mode then install it again.

I have try two night before I got the correct method to install it.
