Livna nvidia driver keeps changing xorg.conf

Hi folks,
I installed Livna nvidia driver (kmod-nvidia-1.0.9755- on my FC6 (Kernel2.6.20). It works fine. But seems like it keeps doing a kind of initialization such as checking vsync and modules everytime I boot up and changing my xorg.conf. Any idea to skip that part?

Try disabling the service kudzu: chkconfig --levels 2345 kudzu off

FYI: the use of dkms and the nvidia-x11-drv (from freshrpms) is a better idea. No more downloads everytime a new kernel is released and installed.



rpm -Uvh freshrpms-release*.rpm

yum install dkms nvidia-x11-drv
