Sorry for the late reply.
I've noticed that in livna, there are two kernel modules
nvidia: akmod-nvidia and kmod-nvidia. Are they exclusive of each other
(iow, only one should be installed on a system)?
My understanding is
that akmods are compiled whenever any new kernel is installed. Is that
akmod packages contain the kernel module sources and a RPM Spec file (a
kmod src.rpm to be precise); the akmods scripts will use this to compile
a kmod that gets installed automatically
Are there instructions on how to use akmods? (ie. when to
update kernels and when to reboot)
/me tends to say "Just do it."
Normally it should "just work" by installing a akmod package; the kmods
will then get build on kernel install or during startup on the next reboot
