Default

Do the md5sums of the .src.rpm file match the posted md5sums on nVidia's download page?

Type in md5sum NVIDIA_k and hit tab to autocomplete the filename, then hit enter. It will process the file, and spit out a checksum value. Compare that value against what's posted at nVidia's download page for the .src.rpm kernel file you downloaded.

You might want to run md5sum on the GLX file as well, just to make sure.

If they don't match, you'll want to re-download until they do.
