Hi Rick,

Thanks for the msg. I do have 6111 working on all the other kernels on 
this machine --- I just ran the nvidia installer (from the nvidia 
website) and it did the automatic compile/install/etc.
But when I run the ccrma kernel it refuses to load.

The error I got was:
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module!
(EE) NVIDIA(0):  *** Aborting ***

I need to look at the nvidia docs to see where/if they log errors.
