FC5: touble building nvidia-kmod from livna




I'm having the devil of a time building (compiling) the nvidia-kmod
rpm for the kernel I'm running.  (Why does this have to be so hard!!!)

Here's what I've done.

I downloaded 

 nvidia-kmod-1.0.8774-1.2.6.17_1.2174_FC5.src.rpm

from livna.  They don't have the module .rpm for the
2.6.15-1.2054_FC5smp which I'm running right now so I figured I'd
"just" build the .rpm.

I then "installed" the .src.rpm with `rpm -i'.

Then I  edited the .spec file, changing 

      %{!?kversion: %define kversion 2.6.17-1.2174_FC5}


to

      %{!?kversion: %define kversion 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5}

at the beginning of the file.

I then did

rpmbuild -bb --target i686 nvidia-kmod.spec

and get the following error messages:

Building target platforms: i686
Building for target i686
error: Failed build dependencies:
	kernel-devel-i686 = 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 is needed by nvidia-kmod-1.0.8774-1.2.6.15_1.2054_FC5.i686
	kernel-xen0-devel-i686 = 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 is needed by nvidia-kmod-1.0.8774-1.2.6.15_1.2054_FC5.i686

What I do have installed is:

# `rpm -qa | fgrep kern'

kernel-smp-devel-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5
kernel-smp-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5
glibc-kernheaders-3.0-5.2

What am I doing wrong?
