As a warning ... I was getting ready to upgrade my kernel to 2.6. I

/usr/share/doc without really thinking and did a "make" on the modules
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. :(

Hi Emma,
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?
Had  the same problem with 2.6.5 and had to go back to 2.6.1 to get it all working again.
