Default 'Unable to find the kernel header files


I recently upgraded Redhat AS 2.1 kernel to the latest kernel. After that I reinstalled the nvidia driver and I got this error message:

'Unable to find the kernel header files for the currently running kernel. Please make sure you have installed the kernel header files for your kernel, on the Redhat systems, for example, be sure you have the 'kernel-source' rpm installed. If you know the correct kernel header files installed, you may specify the kernel include path with the '--kernel-include-path' commandline option.

Please assist. Thank you in advance.

Default Just download the kernelsource-rpm

and install it with rpm -ihv kernelsrc-filename.rpm . Or use -Uhv for update.

You can search for installed packages with
rpm -qa |grep src

Or use terms like
|grep kernel

If you really know where your kernel headers are, then try something like
export KERNEL-INCLUDE-PATH=/usr/src/linux
with your right path.
