Hi Joseph,

I use a Fedora Core box with an Nvidia mx440 card and have the current 
cvs version compiled with XVMC.. I do not have the problems you describe 
with any of the packages..

I would guess that if the nvidia director  is in your ld.so.conf but the 
linker doesn't pick it up you need to rerun ldconfig to rebuild the 
library cache.

Other than that I guess it could be privs..


Q:	Know what the difference between your latest project

A:	Who knows?  The elephant *might* fly, heh, heh...
