Default Still can't load NVidia drivers

System is: RedHat 7.3 on Dell 4500. I can only use text mode, incorrect graphics drivers.

I used NVchooser and it suggested NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2313.src.rpm and the equivalent GLX file.

I have tried to use rpm and I get to the following point on the screen;

install -m 0444 NVdriver /var/tmp/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0//lib/modules/2.4.18-3/kernel/drivers/video
install: cannot stat 'NVdriver' : No such file or directory
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-31904 (%install)

RPM build errors:
Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-31904 (%install)

Any suggestions?

Try to download the *.tar.gz files of this version. Unpack it (tar xfz *filename*) and compile it (change to dir and type make and make install). The Packages you use are no rpm-packages for direct installation.
Hope that will help.
