Well FC2 is available today. I am using 2.6.5 with no problems. I assume that, if I keep my custom compiled kernel it will work and avoid the 4k/8k debacle. Right?

My other pre-installation concern is XF86Config which has been replaced with xorg.conf. Will this create new problems?

It created problems for me

It shouldn't as long as you make sure to edit the correct configuration file.

I installed FC2 final yesterday and tried to install the latest Nvidia drivers with the nvidia installer. Yes, I edited the Xorg.conf file. From a fresh install there isn't an XF86Config file anymore. Well, it crashed my system hard. I had to pull the plug on the computer to get it to turn off. Furthermore, it would not display any graphics upon bootup and I couldn't get to a virtual terminal either. Yuck. :screwy:

Yah same issue I had. From what I've gathered we have to wait. There will be a new version that covers this. Some of the reason is that the driver seems to have been made mainly for XFree. Now that Redhat/Fedora are going to x.org this will be changing. I used the install disk to do a linux rescue and set the inittab to 3 and modified my xorg.conf back to nv. instead of nvidia. I would expect a new driver by next week but no guarantees.
