kernel driver for 2.6 kernel
 
Hi All

I'm wondering if there is a kernel driver for the GForce 4 series chips and the the 2.6.x linux kernels.

If there isn't where can I find the latest driver source for the 2.4.x series kernels. I'm not looking for the install thing that ends in "run". Just a tarball of the sources. I'd like to try and update them so they'll work with 2.6

Thanks

John

Didn't work for me
 
The insmod'ing went fine, but when I tried to fire up X (using kernel 2.6.0-test11) it came back to the console that was consequently broken beyond repair - clearscreen didnt work and everything I typed went off-screen.
