Hi Aaron

What 'tricks', as you called them, does to take to make this work requires
proprietary, non Open Source Software. Fedora does not package and excludes
non OSS.

If you had forgotten that did not know that ask about it here and I am sure
that someone will point you to a link or an email to one of the many times,
hundreds perhaps, of times that has been explained. Search the archives for
Nvidia. ATI. Things like that.

BTW If you really do want to ask your question I would suggest a completely
new thread for it. If you stick it in this one or just change the subject,
which does the same thing, it could just be lost in the traffic as this thread
eventually will spin off to something completely OT.
