No, that's not right.

It is if the OP is (sensibly) using the livna packaged drivers; the
livna build system is out of commission at the moment. Some details, and

This is one reason that I like the FreshRPMs way of doing the kernel mod. It will re-create the kernel module on reboot as required using Dynamic Kernel Modules (DKMS).

The only time this didn't work was when the Nvidia driver was not compatible with the kernel.
