Default Re: Fedora Core 3 and nVidia drivers - Solution

http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/udev/ has:
<Q>
Current Problems on Fedora
...
Nvidia

Quick solution: If you do not need rhgb, just load the nvidia module in /etc/rc.local

If you have udev >= 032-5, load the nvidia module:

cp -a /dev/nvidia* /etc/udev/devices
chown root.root /etc/udev/devices/nvidia*

The Bugzilla for this problem is 133900.
</Q>

According to Harald Hoyer, the author of the above web page, there is a chicken-and-egg problem with FC3, udev, and the nvidia drivers.

"The correct way would be to load the module from the X-server part and wait for the device nodes to show up. We expect the next steps from nvidia." (From an email.)

I don't know how nVidia feels about this.
