NVIDIA-drivers for the rt-kernel

Moin Hartmut,

I was messing around with lucid's amd64 betas and some bleeding-edge 
ppas (not on productive partition ;) ) and suddenly Nvidia proprietary 
drivers stopped working.
So I had to remove these ppas, downgrade all xorg stuff to lucid 
standards, remove jockey and all nvidia stuff besides nv, and installed 
last driver from Nvidia's site manually as described in many howtos. Now 
ubuntu's kernels 2.6.31-10-rt and 2.6.31-12-realtime again cooperate 
with Nvidia 172.14.25 and my old fx5200. I love this legacy card due to 
it's noiseless passive cooling.
But it may depend on your card and driver. Did you give nvnews and their 
linux section a look?
