Default 3D drivers can't work

when I run nv_check.sh.txt, it said

All the files seem to exist. Now I'm going to see if your kernel
module is loaded correctly...
the NVdriver kernel module does not seem to be loaded. The 3D
drivers will not work without it...please compile it for your
kernel, set it up to insert the module on boot, then run
this script again.

what should I do?please

My OS is Redhat 8.0, I have installed NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.rh80up_2.4.18_18.8.0.i386.rpm
and NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4191.i386.rpm

I can tell you another way of getting your drivers to work

download nvidia kernel and glx source drivers

open xterm and go into super user mode
type in rpmbuild --rebuild nvidia_kernel whatever .src.rpm
the same for the GLX driver
then more over to you /usr/src/whatever/whatever
and rpm -ivh nvidia_kernel.whatever.i386.rpm
and the same for your GLX drivers
then restart you computer

this worked for me
Redhat 8.0
geforce 4 ti 400

also read this post for more help

or oyou can move over to your /sbin dir and type in modprobe nvidia and restart
this also worked for me when i mod one of my files

Thanks for your reply. I've try it, but it's not work well . It said I can't run the command "rpm -ivh" in graphical interface.

Your original problem is that the version of nv_check that you were running does not know enough about 4191 -- it only really works well with 1251 (or possibly 1541) and older.

I've got a version that works OK with 4191; I'll attach it.
