I am trying to install nvidia driver on Precision 7920 running rhel 7.6 kernel 3.10.0-957.21.3.el7.x86_64.
I performed the following steps:
1. Lspci – determine gpu
a. GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX added rdblacklist=nouveau nouveau.modeset=0
3. Grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/EFI/redhat/grub.cfg
a. Blacklisted nouveau
5. yum install kernel-devel.rpm
6. Set machine to boot into text mode
a. Systemctl get-default
b. Systemctl set-default multi-user.target
c. Systemctl get-default
After performing these steps I tried to run the NVIDA driver installer and was given an error of stating that it could not find the kernel path tree.
I specified the kernel-source-path=/lib/modules/3.10.0-957.21.3.el7.x86-64/build/
This still did not recitify the issue.
When I looked at my /lib/modules/kernel/build the link shows as broken.
What am I missing to get this issue resolved? Im at my wits end.
