I noticed some odd issues with nvidia-x11-drv 173.08-1.beta.el5.rf
while upgrading from CentOS 5.1 -> 5.2 (x86).

It occurred on three machines, all AMD (Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core
Processor 3800+,  Opteron(tm) Processor 246).

When the nvidia.ko module was being loaded the machine would stop
responding & require a hard reboot. 
Resolved by removing & reinstalling nvidia-x11-drv. 
Seemingly when the upgrade happened, an nvidia.ko symlink was placed
in /lib/modules/2.6.18-92.1.1.el5/weak-updates/ pointing to the .ko
in /lib/modules/2.6.18-53.1.21.el5/weak-updates/

When did reinstall & ran /etc/init.d/dkms_autoinstaller nvidia.ko was
placed in /lib/modules/2.6.18-92.1.1.el5/extra
