Neal,

It is possible that the changes you made by copying the .ko file has
changed the underlying behavior, which is not a bad thing.

I do not believe that by running the two commands you will hurt
anything.

However, if you are not having trouble during a re-boot, which is the
key symptom of the udev problem, you may not need to. In other words, if
it ain't broke, don't fix it.

You might want to run:

$ ls -l /etc/udev/devices

and see what you get. If it is something like:

$ ls -l /etc/udev/devices
crw-rw-rw-  1 root root 195,   0 Apr 11 17:01 nvidia0
crw-rw-rw-  1 root root 195,   1 Apr 11 17:01 nvidia1
crw-rw-rw-  1 root root 195,   2 Apr 11 17:01 nvidia2
crw-rw-rw-  1 root root 195,   3 Apr 11 17:01 nvidia3
crw-rw-rw-  1 root root 195,   4 Apr 11 17:01 nvidia4
crw-rw-rw-  1 root root 195,   5 Apr 11 17:01 nvidia5
crw-rw-rw-  1 root root 195,   6 Apr 11 17:01 nvidia6
crw-rw-rw-  1 root root 195,   7 Apr 11 17:01 nvidia7
crw-rw-rw-  1 root root 195, 255 Apr 11 17:01 nvidiactl

Then you are probably OK as is. The dates of these files correspond to
my last kernel upgrade and re-run of the nVidia installer.

HTH,

Marc
