The driver is compiled for specific kernel version (3.10.0-123.e17)


*rpm -qlp kmod-nvme-1.21-el7.x86_64.rpm*/etc/depmod.d/nvme.conf
/etc/dracut.conf.d/nvme.conf
/lib/modules/3.10.0-123.el7.x86_64
/lib/modules/3.10.0-123.el7.x86_64/extra
/lib/modules/3.10.0-123.el7.x86_64/extra/nvme
/lib/modules/3.10.0-123.el7.x86_64/extra/nvme/nvme.ko

Currently on kernel 3.10.0-1062.4.1.e17  (centos7.7)

Trying yum install anyway, get dependency complaints that can't
