Looking RHEL kernel module 4.18.0-348.23.1

It looks like there is no precompiled nvidia kernel module available in the cuda-rhel8.repo and is causing the kernel installation to be skipped. The latest kernel module available in that repository is for kernel 4.18.0-348.20.1, but version 4.18.0-348.23.1 is needed for upgrading.

When will this module be published? I can’t install the latest RHEL patches until this is available.

It’s been three weeks since posting this issue. Is this analysis of my problem incorrect? What other options should I be considering?

Red Hat Tech support advises that I open a ticket with NVIDIA regarding this issue. Is this forum the right place to be addressing this problem?

I think I have a similar issue, I seem to be caught in between supported kernel/driver versions (looking at precompiled version - there is no nvidia driver for the next kernel version, 4.18.0-348.23.1.el8_5 - link).

@earl.socorro Did you manage to resolve your issue?

I’m wondering whether I’ll have to remove Nvidia precompiled driver completely, install yum/dnf updates and then reinstall the latest precompiled Nvidia driver.

If anyone sees any issues with this approach and/or has experience performing something similar I’d really appreciate some feedback.

EDIT: Or would a better alternative approach be to simply wait for a newer rhel 8 (8.5) kernel update, ie leapfrogging the issue I’m experiencing right now?

Many thanks

Red Hat is reporting that my problem is:
GPG key at https://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/cuda/repos/rhel8/x86_64/7fa2af80.pub (0x7FA2AF80) is already installed
The GPG keys listed for the “cuda-rhel8-x86_64” repository are already installed but they are not correct for this package.
Check that the correct key URLs are configured for this repository… Failing package is: kmod-nvidia-510.47.03-4.18.0-348.20.1-3:510.47.03-3.el8_5.x86_64

Please advise how I find the correct GPG key and import it onto my machine.

Did you have any luck with this? If so, you should share. I have the same problem.

UPDATE: Nevermind…this link helped
