Installing Nvdia FX570 drivers on CentOS 5.x

I was trying out an installation on CentOS 5.3 (x86-64) on a workstation which have Nvidia Fx570 card.

The installation of CentOS was very smooth. No hiccups.

  1. I've downloaded the Nvidia Drivers for Linux from Nvidia Site
  2. I did a "# yum install gcc" as Nvidia Drivers need gcc to compile
  3. I run the ./ But I seems to encounter the "No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you like the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel" error
  4. I "yum install kernel-devel" and the error still appear
  5. Finally I run the application with the full kernel source path "./ --kernel-source-path=/usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-128.2.1.el5-x86_64/"
It works.... :)
