      Hi - if you do
      rpm -qa | grep kernel

      do you see the kernel-source package installed for the currently
      running kernel? You need to install that in order to compile; the
      kernel-headers package is not enough. That may be the problem.

      I have successfully compiled patched NVIDIA drivers under RH7.3 . I
      made sure to repackage the patched driver as an RPM which I guess I
      could send you if you need it.

      best,
      Scott
