Do I have to reinstall NVIDIA drivers after every kernel upgrade?
I just recently shoved my GeForce 2 GTS card into my Red Hat 7.3 box.
After much dismay, I figured out how to install the NVIDIA drivers. My issue was that I was running the 2.4.18-5 kernel and installing the drivers using the "packaged" rpms and not the source rpms.
I ended removing the 2.4.18-5 kernel and installing the drivers on the 2.4.18-3 kernel. The NVIDIA drivers appear to work now.
My question is that if I want to upgrade my kernel to 2.4.18-5 do i need to rebuild the NVIDIA_kernel from the source rpm.

Either rebuild by source rpm or use the tarballs (you will need the appropiate kernel-source to do that).
I prefer to use the tarballs. Never use the uncompressed folders twice. It could cause problems. Always untar the archives and apply make install.
Use the source, Tux.
