[PlanetCCRMA] CCRMA and NVidia

i succesfully compiled it on RH7.3 and will try RH8 tonight when time
permits  :)

one thing though, on the nvidia page it says that when it cannot find
a driver pre-compiled for your system, the installer will compile
itself a driver from scratch.

with the RH7.3 CCRMA kernel, i got the message that it had a
mismatch, and i choose to let the installer compile the driver
itself. this took a while and then all was fine!

i never set anything like IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH because i think the
nvidia installer actually *has* to compile its own in order to match
the CCRMA kernel.

so i'd suggest re-run this NVIDIA .run file and when it pops the
message about a mismatch, find howto let the installerc ompile it for
you (sorry, cant remember if its a button or a key to press)

oh, and are you sure that you have the correct kernel source
(header?) files installed? 

you will love the NVIDIA driver for watching DVD and such... once its
working  :)
