My 2.6.5 tutorial for SuSE users here-->
 
Hi,

I decided to do a tutorial for SuSE users on how to compile the 2.6.5 from source, hope it helps you out.

You can download it HERE in PDF format.

Feedback welcome.

Does your tutorial apply to SuSE 9.1 or 9.0?
In case it's for SuSE 9.1: Could you install the NVidia 5336 driver? I tried kernel 2.6.6 yesterday and the NVidia installer failed with errors like:

/tmp/selfgz7954/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1/usr/src/nv/nv.c:2010: error:

/tmp/selfgz7954/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1/usr/src/nv/nv.h:341: error: p

Someone mentioned that those were caused by gcc-3.3.3.

I not tried it with 9.1 and 2.6.6 yet as i'm happy with the stock SuSE kernel in 9.1. The nvidia driver works fine with 9.1, the stock kernel and updated one, as you can see below in my SIG.
