Re: Cannot compile nvidia-kernel, i386, kernel 2.6.20 and 2.6.21
since kernel version 2.6.20 and 2.6.21 it is no more possible to compile the
nvidia-kernel-module. Either the nvidia-kernel-legacy nor the normal
nvidia-kernel-source. My architecture is an Athlon XP, 32-bit with i386.

There are good reasons to set it.
To get around it,
(1)recompile the kernel with that turned off, or
(2)follow the method discussed in:
