yes, the drivers for redhat 6.1 smp kernel don't work with that kernel!
you have to fix the drivers manually. this is how i did it:
1) find the "unresolved symbol" in the kernel source.
[ grep may come in handy here ].
symbols with strange numbers at the end seem to be functions...
2) include this in the makefile for the nvidia driver, or
add a #include to one of the source files, or, as i had to
do, add your own source file to the makefile, containing
whatever bits nvidia forgot to include :)
this is a real pain in the ass, but it should work.
i used the same method to get my sb live working on an smp
kernel with a cvs version of alsa.
good luck :)
