nvidia permissions changing on reboot


Per the instructions to get the nvidia dirvers to work I use
chmod 0666 /dev/nvidia* chown root /dev/nvidia*
This works great but I have to do this everytime I reboot. How to I set these to stay?

Hi,

Look at /etc/udev/permissions.d/ and try add similar records for nvidia devices.
