Steve P.,

I don't want to hijack this discussion. But was wondering what you do
with regard to Fedora upgrades and Nvidia drivers from RPMFusion.org.
If you use the RPMFusion.org Nvidia driver do you do upgrades or fresh
installs of Fedora? I know myself for the upgrade from 10 to 11 and 11
to 12 I've done fresh installs because I didn't want to bork up my
system. On Fedora 10 and 11 I used the Nvidia driver from
RPMFusion.org. I'm currently using the supplied driver with X on
Fedora 12. Still haven't decided whether to use the Nvidia driver. The
Fedora release notes kind of frown on doing upgrades with third party
packages installed.

no nation has ever borrowed largely for education.  Probably,
no nation is rich enough to pay for both war and civilization.
We must make our choice; we cannot have both.
