I ok downloaded the correct Nvidia drivers for my Redhat 8.0 and i downloaed the corresponding GLX driver with it.. When trying to to install the rpm with the command rpm -ivh i recieve and error which states cant locate Module nvidia
Failed to install nvidia.o
error:% post (nvidia_kernel-1.0-4191.rh80up2.4.18_18.8.0
scriplet failed
exit status 1????

I know i have the correct driver kernel because i used the NVchooser file and that was the driver that came up for me to install....?

Does anyone know why these errors are coming up
Ps the GLX installed without a problem...

Try downloading the *.tar.gz files on nvidia's website and installing from that. This is the method I always use just to be safe.
