Hi Matt,

Sorry for getting so late to this post. I used your instructions for
kmod-nvidia for a while, but on F8 I could not use them anymore (thanks
a lot). I sent a post to PlanetCCRMA last February with the procedure I
am using now:


Looks like Livna is using RPM Fusion in order to facilitate KMOD
compilation in different Kernels.

Once I have the KMOD SRPM,  All I have to do is to compile kmod-nvidia
module for a ccrma rt kernel as:

'rpmbuild -ba --define "kernels $(uname -r)" --target i686 \
