As a warning ... I was getting ready to upgrade my kernel to 2.6. I
downloaded the new nvidia package. I was following instructions from

package. Within seconds I got dumped out of X and have been unable to
start it ever since. The error messages I'm getting have to do with the
module versions not matching the kernel versions.
I have no idea how to get X back under my old kernel, and the new one
isn't ready to be used yet (basically nothing's working yet).
So as a warning....do NOT mess around with the latest nvidia packages
until you know for sure that the rest of the 2.6 kernel is going to work. :(
Emma Jane Hogbin
are you referring to 'make'ing X or the kernel?
couldnt you just reinstall what was overriten?
or remove the X packages and install them?
I used the nvidia installer and I use a 2.6.5 kernel
didnt miss a beat
