say that distributing the NVidia driver kernel modules breaks the kernel

When I installed the NVidia drivers, I thought I got a new kernel, as I
had to reboot the computer. I thought modules could be loaded without
rebooting. Did I get a kernel or modules?

You can run the following (all on one line) to see if a kernel install took place at the same time driver:

rpm -qa --queryformat '%{INSTALLTIME}\t%{INSTALLTIME:date}\t%{NAME}\n' | sort -g | cut -f 2-
