Re the Nvidia drivers, no you're not making any mistake, this is a
problem with the livna nvidia packaging, the problem is they update the
version numbers and the kernel module barfs when it sees a different
version number (I think) so they remove the old module.
I just reverted to doing the nvidia install manually you need to unpack
the Nvidia-blah.run using the -x flag, change to that unpacked NVIDIA
directory and run nvidia-installer -K to just install a new kernel module.
Having said that the livna packages are certainly easy and a good thing,
just not if you have a new kernel with bugs (like the 2.6.24 kernels)
For Nvidia, I use the freshrpms version as it uses dkms and will
re-create the module on reboot. No waiting or re-installing due to
livna being seconds behind the release of the new kernel.
