That's the one I think I'm using. Somehow, when I did my most recent
update, to kernel 2.6.18-164.11.1.el5, or whenever it did an X update, I
lose track, it installed dkms-nvidia-x11-drv. I want to prevent that
update from occurring in the future... and I may need to do it on some
users' systems, also with older nvidia cards.
