497If your <path>/dev/nvidia</path> devices are still missing every time you
498reboot, then it is most likely because udev is not automatically creating the
499proper device nodes. You can fix this by re-running <c>NVmakedevices.sh</c>,
500and then editing <path>/etc/conf.d/rc</path> as shown:
503<pre caption="Editing /etc/conf.d/rc">
508This will preserve your <path>/dev/nvidia</path> nodes even if you reboot.
512Alternatively, you might try emerging the latest <c>nvidia-kernel</c> and
513<c>nvidia-glx</c> from the 8xxx series. At the time of this writing, both are
514still marked ~arch. These drivers no longer rely on hotplug or udev to create
515the proper device nodes, so you won't need to run <c>NVmakedevices.sh</c>.
516Instead, the X driver itself will create your <path>/dev/nvidia</path> files
517when you start X. However, this will require you to use a recent kernel (2.6.14
518and greater).
