groupd buildmeister does not exist - using root
user buildmeister does not exist - using root
group buildmeister does not exist - using root
Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.37680 (%install)
Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong. I'm on an smp machine too, if that helps, I'm confused on what to do with that too.
I know this question is repetitive, but I didn't really find my answer
I guess your problems is source and bin is not right.
type :
uname -r
to check your using kernel version.

go to directory :
/usr/src/

to see if your right source here :
e.g. directory present
linux-2.4.18-24.8.0

or your can install source rpm yourself :
kernel-source-2.4.18-24.8.0.i386.rpm

your must run on target kernel and reference target kernel source to compile target usable nvidia driver.

Hope this help.
