Yep. Download this package (probably the one you have already):
Now you will have it customize itself for your newer kernel. It has info for some kernels already built into it, but when you have a newer kernel, you need to add this step each time.
You will need to have the kernel-source package for the 8k-stack kernel you are using already installed on your machine. You can get an rpm for it at the same place you got the kernel rpm itself, which is probably Linuxant. It is a big file but no big thing to install -- it is just libraries and headers that anything compiled against a particular kernel needs to know about. Installing the kernel source won't change or mess up anything. Make sure you are running your "newer" kernel for this next step.
To customize the NVIDIA .run package you downloaded for your current kernel and kernel-source, run this:
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run --add-this-kernel
This will make a package called:
It is now pre-built to work with your particular new kernel, in addition to whatever it would have worked with before.
So now you are back to going through the regular instructions you tried before, but you will use your new custom.run package instead.
