Ahh, I know what he's talking about now. When you install the module it
will go out to nvidia to check for newer kernel modules. It prompts you
for a choice to build one or get one download one from nvidia. I always
build the module when I do a kernel upgrade. Now keep in mind my nvidea
card is way older than his and I use the older drivers that as of now
will not be updated anymore. The newer driver packages from them may
include different options. Like for instance the weekly updates???
