Haven't got a clue, but I've never got my drivers to work with v4l
loaded and all of the example config files I have seen on nVidia mailing
lists and forums do not have it loaded. I also have a Hauppage TV card
and I can watch TV, DVDs and everything else quite happily without v4l

I'm not going to debate technical issues, that's just how seems to work.

Don't worry about that Ian, just ignore all those settings. I seemed to
have a stable setup so I made sure I was using the NV AGP. Seemed to
make a difference when I was playing RTCW.

If you've compiled from source and installed the rpms located in
/usr/src/RPM/RPMs... kernel first and then GLX, edited your config file,
restarted your machine and then did a startx then I don't know. You seem
to have a KT400 chipset so I don't know if there are any issues with
this. Are there and error messages when you do a startx?
