OK...the nvidia installer cannot find the properly prepared kernel
sources. I have the kernel and matching kernel-develop packages
installed for the running kernel. What must be done in Fedora to
properly 'prepare' the kernel sources?
In other distros I would cd to /usr/src/linux, then do a 'make
mrproper', 'make cloneconfig' and then 'make prepare'
