The **** you say! Is this why I can't get X going under vanilla 2.6.28?
Any word on the ETA of the fixing of the breakage?

Exactly. That's why 2.6.27 should be more mainstream. To reiterate
thoughts of millions of right-thinking people, 2.6.27 should be the
"official" Lenny kernel. Or at least be packaged alongside 2.6.26 in
the final distribution as an alternative.
Well I certainly wouldn't object to 2.6.27 being the Lenny kernel, but I
have no say in that matter.
That would break all three nvidia drivers currently within non-free,
so it is not necessarily a good idea for the people that rely on those
for a desktop.
What's the deal, anyway? The nVidia blob installer tries to make like
it can't find the kernel headers, nor the compiled output.
(I just built a kernel from linux-source-2.6.28, but haven't booted
it yet. Still on 2.6.27 snap 12516. Using binary 177.82, kernel 64
bit with 32 bit userland. Works like a charm...)
