Default buildmeister error again - Dual Processor Machine

I have RH 8.0 installed, on a dual processor system. When I initially installed the NVIDIA drivers, I had no problems at all. I downdloaded and installed the SMB kernel packages, changed my XF11CONFIG file, and all worked great!


Then I upgraded to LINUX kernel-smb-2.4.18-27.8.0. When I rebooted, the driver no longer worked. So I did my research, and learnbed I would have to compile the NVIDIA driver with the command "rpmbuild --rebuild NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.src.rpm" But each time I do, I get an error message:

install: cannot stat `nvidia.o': No such file or directory
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.32146 (%install)

RPM build errors:
user buildmeister does not exist - using root
group 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.32146 (%install)

I have seen many other people in this forum withg the same error message, but NOBODY has given a sollution that works. I have the necessary tools installed, including the kernel development packages. I also upgraded EVERYTHING using the RedHat Network, so I know I am using the latest binaries & SRC packages. What should I do?
