RHEL8 precompiled kmod status

NVIDIA provides precompiled driver packages only for the latest official RHEL kernel. If you use an earlier kernel, update and then opt-into a precompiled modularity stream. This approach does not require the gcc compiler to be installed, resulting in a reduced attack surface and faster boot up times on kernel and/or driver updates. Using these precompiled kmod packages offers greater stability, as the exact NVIDIA driver version and kernel version string combination has been pre-tested. Say goodbye to black screens (runlevel 3) and hello to a predictable user experience, with a driver installation that no longer depends on kernel-devel and kernel-headers packages. New kmod packages are typically available within 24 hours of a new RHEL kernel update.
