These symlinks and *.a libs are part of nvidia-graphics-devel* rpms files.

Please try to get it working with v4l2 (which is what differs the
ATrpms' kernels from the standards ones). Perhaps the drivers for 2.6
are more adequate. Or maybe there a v4l2 developement versions for the
drivers available. If you have success in building drivers against
ATrpms' kernels, please let me have your recipe! :)

Why did you compile CVS? For XvMC support? There is XvMC for nvidia in
the myth-cvs rpms. If you are a CVS builder, please consider testing
the CVS rpms, so any packaging bugs can be found (but please, don't
report packaging bugs here, but either at atrpms-(users|devel) or in
private. See also the top notes at the myth-cvs URL). Thanks!
