[PlanetCCRMA] Nvidia problem and my first post!

I have the same problem with the nvidia module when trying to install 
with the planetccrma kernels. I've tried building them using the nvidia 
installer and sources and get the same errors.

Here is the msg. from the installer log:

-> Kernel module compilation complete.
ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'.  This happens most
       frequently when this kernel module was built against the wrong or
       improperly configured kernel sources, with a version of gcc that 
       from the one used to build the target kernel, or if a driver such as
       rivafb/nvidiafb is present and prevents the NVIDIA kernel module from
       obtaining ownership of the NVIDIA graphics device(s).

and this:

"nvidia: disagrees about version of symbol struct_module"

The gcc version is 4.1.1 and the nvidia module loads with the 'stock' 
kernel - 2.6.18-1.2200.fc5

Maybe, a new 2.6.18 Planet kernel would work with the nvidia module 
better?  ; )
