6800 PAM issues
I just bought and installed the 6800 card. Using the nvidia linux driver everything seems to work fine. However as soon as a reboot I get the following when I try to run say glxgears:
Error: Could not open /dev/nvidiactl because the permissions
are too resticitive. Please see the FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
section of /usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/README for steps
Referencing this doc I carried out the steps changing the file and chmod/chown the /dev/nvidia*. It all works however the next time I reboot I have to change the permissions all over again.
The doc also suggests it is the PAM security system which changes the permissions back again and that I should disable the service.
I am running on FC3.
Has anybody any ideas how to do this? or have the same issue?
