I guess this is what makes me feel lucky. I do not use the livna nvidia 
drivers, primarily because they don't keep up with the kernel version if you 
build your own, which I do.

So I check the nvidia site everytime I happen to think about it and download 
their latest *.run installer.  So I can build a new kernel, reboot to my 
normal runlevel 3 login, then "sh ./N[tab][enter]" (if one of them is all 
there is in /root) answer a few ncurses yes/no's, and its installed.  Yeah, 
its a pita & takes about 2 minutes.  But guess what folks, it Just Works(TM)

Cheers, Gene
