Angry NVidia TNT2 M64 Linux Driver Issues

I have recently installed Linux Red Hat 7.3 (Valhalla). I have been trying to install the NVidia drivers.

I downloaded the kernel & glx rpm's. I don't know what the problem is, as soon as I change the driver name to NVdriver, in the /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file, my X won't start.

During the compiling of the kernel and glx i get an error telling me that there are "unresolved symbols". What does this mean?

I read somewhere that I need to add something to my modules.conf or something. looks like something to do with "alias".

I'm a newbie linux guy, please forgive me if this is dumb. I would really appreciate some help though.

Thank you

Default

Unresolved symbols would indicate that you installed the wrong NVIDIA_kernel RPM. Please download and run NVchooser.sh from the driver download page (http://www.nvidia.com/view.asp?IO=li...splay_1.0-3123). It will tell you which files you need to download and install based on your machine.

The RPM should automatically update your /etc/modules.conf file with the correct alias lines - you shouldn't need to worry about it.
