Thanks Anders

That got the Nvidia drivers installed and that seems to be working. Sound
even kept working, but problem I was hoping to cure that came with 2.4.17
is still there. That is, the mouse is still flakey. When I click on the KDE
start menu, most of the time, I have to click 3 or 4 times before the menu
comes up and stays up. Most of the time it comes up and goes right away. It
is almost like a contact bounce on the mouse switch, but did not have this
problem until 2.4.17. Tried to adjust some settings in the mouse portion of
the control panel, but that also did not help. This is quite irritating as
it also does it when clicking on files in Konqueror, etc.

Anyone have any ideas on this?

I know the shortcut is alt+f1 for whatever that is worth.

Mouse is Microsoft intellieye wheel mouse with device = /dev/psaux and
imps/2 protocol according to XF86Config. Vendor is AutoDetected and ZAxis
Mapping is "4 5"

Have any suggestions for this?

Yep, but it makes me wonder how you built it for 2.4.17, since the same
problem existed there.

Grab the patch from mantel/next. It's called nvidia-pte-highmem

do rpm -i on the src.rpm, and then rpm -bp on

That will get you the source in
cd to that directory and do patch -p1 < nvidia-pte-highmem
Then, as root, do 'make' and the module should build and install properly
