Thanks, should I not still be able to compile it depsite the card not being
supported? as mentioned in my OP I'm hoping to upgrade the card at some
point, likely to a better Nvidia card, so I'd still like to be able to
compile with VDPAU support. (Unless having the card in the machine is a
requirement for compiling)
I will give your suggestions a try tonight.
