did you by chance edit it or the boot line in the bootloder
I did no such edits (that I'm aware of).
I don't see why akmod driver rebuilding (or trying to rebuild) on every boot requires a network connection.

An akmod is actually just a regular RPM which contains a SRC.RPM + a spec file to bring in the deps necessary to build it. The source RPMs are expected to be found in /usr/src/akmods/ by the akmodsbuild script. If the version found there is newer than the kmod installed, it will be rebuilt, or if the kmod does not exist (/lib/modules/KERNELVERSION/extra/nvidia/nvidia.ko), it will be rebuilt.
How does the kmod get rebuilt immediately after a kernel is installed? By the postinstall script in /etc/kernel/postinst.d/akmods (note: the only other postinst script currently is supplied by "dkms")
If the source is on my machine, what is it checking the network for? Nothing in that description (to my ignorant read) implies a network action. Can you help me or point me to a google search that will enlighten me?
Many thanks for your help!
