Me too. But I use the kmods that RPMFusion puts out. They do not very often lag behind the new kernels, and most of the time they get updated at the same time. Furthermore, they don't "break" when a new version of the driver gets released, because the new kmods get released at the same time as the new drivers. It is usually nVidia who lag behind the latest kernels. And the RPMFusion people then have to wait for nVidia to fix it before they can. > That has *never* happened to me.

Indeed. I just find that use of the kmods is better for me.
