That is what I did. I downloaded the stock 2.6.17 kernel and then I build the
fuse module and nvidia kernel module with the help of module-assistant.
This is what I have on my Etch system:
ii nvidia-glx 1.0.8774-7
ii nvidia-kernel-2.6.17-2-686 1.0.8774-7+2.6.17-9
ii nvidia-kernel-2.6.17-v3 1.0.8774-7+2.6.17-v3-10.00.Custom
ii nvidia-kernel-common 20051028+1
ii nvidia-kernel-source 1.0.8774-7
The maintainer of the Debian nvidia packages indicated that some new nvidia
packages should be moved from Sid to Etch very soon.
