Well, lsmod did not show nvidia loaded. So I hit modload nvidia, and I get this message:

Warning: loading /lib/modules/2.4.21-4.EL/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o will tai nt the kernel: non-GPL license - NVIDIA
See for information about tainted modu les
Module nvidia loaded, with warnings

Now I type lsmod, and nvidia is now loaded, and unused.

Is this a problem, or a path to solution? According to, this means nothing more that these drivers are not GPL release, if I am interpreting that correctly.

If all is ok, how do I get that module to load every time I boot, or is that unecessary?

Thanks for the help.
