That is not the kernel source. The kernel source rpm is called
kernel-source.rpm. Unlike all other source rpms it looks like a binary rpm,
but isn't.

You also need to prepare it before you can compile drivers against it

cd /usr/src/linux
make mrproper
make cloneconfig
make dep

after that, the nvidia compile will work
