My /dev/nvidia0 keeps changing the group from "video" to "44" while I am using the computer trying to run UT2004. If I just set permissions to 666 for it it changes them back too. I can't create a group "44" either. Anyone have any ideas?

I am using NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-180.17-pkg2 for my drivers, and Ubuntu 8.10 64 bit.

Got it working by changing the group id for video to 44. The video group disappeared from the gui group list but now works with UT2004 and BOINC.
