Default Driver src compile error; RH 7.2 2 Processor

Hi there, I just upgraded my Redhat 7.2 to Dual processor, upgraded my kernel to 2.4.19-ac4, everything with working great, I rpm --rebuild the NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.i386.rpm it works. The problem I have is when I try to rpm -Uv NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.i386.rpm it gives me these errors
rmmod: module NVdriver is not loaded
rmmod: module nvidia is not loaded
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.19-ac4/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o
/lib/modules/2.4.19-ac4/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o: unresolved symbol __global_cli
/lib/modules/2.4.19-ac4/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o: unresolved symbol tqueue_lock
/lib/modules/2.4.19-ac4/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o: unresolved symbol __global_save_flags

/lib/modules/2.4.19-ac4/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o: unresolved symbol smp_num_cpus
Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license
and it has unresolved symbols. Contact the module supplier for
assistance, only they can help you.

/lib/modules/2.4.19-ac4/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.19-ac4/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.19-ac4/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o: insmod nvidia failed

Failed to install nvidia.o

error: execution of %post scriptlet from NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191 failed, exit status 1

If you could help at all it would be great. It worked before I upgraded to Dual Processor, with the same kernel.

Isn't there separate versions of the drivers for uni and multiprocessor systems (wouldn't the SMP version of the drivers more appropriate in you case)?

There isn't seperate Source RPM's for 1 or 2 processors. I have only found ones like that, that are binary compiled RPM's
