Neal,

There are "extra" files there (nvidia8 - nvidia15) which is curious and
the permissions on those files are wrong. It may be a result of the
various things that have been done OR it may also very well be the
result of the particular nVidia card you are using which perhaps
requires the additional files.

I went back through the thread and unless I missed it, I did not see
mention of which card you have. I have the GeForce FX Go 5200, on a Dell
laptop.

Try to run:

ls -l /dev/nv*

and see what output you get there.

At this point, I think that I would in fact recommend that you run the
two udev related commands, just to be sure. That will also solve the
permission issues.

Marc
