[PlanetCCRMA] NVIDIA graphics drivers

I am hopeful low latency things would work better on my machine if I could
get the NVIDIA graphics drivers to work. I couldn't get this to work with
RH9, despite repeated kernel molestations. I just stuck with my laptop,
which didn't need the NVIDIA driver, and everything was fine.

Everything is still fine. However, I spent today putting up Fedora Core 1
on my desktop machine. The CCRMA stuff went in fine, although I am
disappointed that video apps seem missing. I went to put in the NVIDIA
kernel drivers. I used IGNORE_CC whatever and the "make install" for
NVIDIA's stuff went fine. The redhat/caps kernel I'm running seems to
already have the NVIDIA agpgart patch applied, although I didn't check
exhaustively. I loaded up the modules and restarted X. The machine
crashed. If I hit ALT-Fn keys, the screen gets text garbage on it. There
is *nothing* interesting in the XFree86 or messages log. Wow this is

Anyone have an NForce 2 motherboard with CCRMA? Does it work well? Have
you run latencytest? Did you do something I missed?
