You need to get the kernel source PRM that matches your kernel. Depending
on what RedHat version youre running you may also need to install antoher
gcc package (to match the one used to compile the kernel) or tell the
NVIDIA installer to ignore the version mismatch (thats worked for me in
the past, but may be a source of bugs).
