Newbie (and perhaps stupid) question: is there a way to remove the

continually remove the latter? As it stands, there two steps necessary
whenever I get rawhide updates:
1) re-run the nVidia installer whenever the kernel is updated
2) remove using --nodeps whenever XFree is updated (since I can't
update without including the Mesa-libGL package...
3) get nvidia-glx as a rpm,
remove Mesa-libGL, recompile/install
the kernel driver if you update the kernel.
for a src.rpm
I only use the glx rpm, the kernel part of the rpm is a bit too much
hassle when using 2.6 (looks like the latest spec file removed it
completely). For 2.4 it should work fine.
