Nvidia Kernel Module
I'm running Redhat 8.0 with the 1.4-4496 driver it was working perfectly.
I have just upgrade the kernel using via rpm to 188.8.131.52-8. Now when
I try and startX it bombs, i get error complaining about the nvida module
was complied with the 2.4.18 kernel.
Do I have to uninstall the driver and reinstall / compile it with the new
kernel, I hope not. These thing are so simply when you know how.
Thanks In advance.

The driver is linked against the kernel for a specific version once you modify that variable then you have to recompile the driver for the kernel once again.
Simple enough to do for the nvidia driver, just run the install script again.
Also make sure you installed the new kernel sources package update too.
You NEEd the kernel sources for whichever version you're running in order to compile a new driver for that kernel.
Thats about it.
