Red Hat I know what you're thinking, but don't worry. This article isn't 'Yet Another Red Hat 8.0 Review'. This article is primarily about using Red Hat 8.0 if you happen to be a newbie, but it's also about using Red Hat 8.0 if you happen to be a KDE user. Why? I happen to be a KDE user, so it makes sense I'd focus more on what I know the most about. Plus, I still remember the frustration of staring with something akin to terror at a blank command line with lots of ideas about what I'd like to do and very little knowledge of how to do it.

Hi all i'm new to the world of linux, i just installed rh 8.0 and i downloaded the glx src and kernel src

everything goes fine untill the rpmbuild -bb command

the glx rpm compiles ok but when it comes to the kernel is says this

install: cannot stat `NVdriver': No such file or directory
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.43421 (%install)
so it doesn't make a kernel rpm

can anyone help me?

p.s: does having an amd processor have anything to do with it not compiling it properly
