Thanks..
I think it can be a real mess with nvidia drivers, even if i really 
appreciate they provide drivers and support for linux.
Some drivers build, some do not, can't figure why...

Still need advices on how to achieve latency down to 256

I've only recently been able to build a working kernel with rt_preempt!

Thanks
Eric
