    I'll do that - trouble is round where I am they dish out Nvidia cards
    like confetti, I've got them in the machine I use most and another 2 and
    you have to do all that gyrating with running the script to FTP down and
    build the secret module before you can run X. This is a big disincentive
    when it comes to installing new kernels.

    I wish some kind soul would speak nicely to Nvidia and get them to see
    reason on the point but I suspect I'm not the first person to wish that.
    (Or is there a sneaky way of patching the modules so they'll work in
    another kernel without tainting it?).
