Red Hat Well, here on OSNews, there has been plenty of discussion about Red Hat 8, what it is, what it isn't, the Bluecurve look and many other features and issues. I ordered Red Hat 8 Personal Edition and decided to see how close Red Hat 8 may be to a distribution that Joe and Jane User could install and use.

Spark's nvidia driver install instructions

Spark, Thanks for the instructions.

You didn't mention what to do with the rpms that you originally downloaded into your home directory. Does the OS require you keep them any place special, or can they be deleted?

Also, why use the rpmbuild command? Most users usually see instructions to type rpm -ihv <rpm_package>.
