thanks for replying.
The issue I'm facing right now is that when I boot into the '2239' kernel, I get a blank screen. Pressing CTRL-ALT-F1 doesn't help either. You're right in that I can't run the nvidia drivers in the '2054' kernel.
Any idea if I would have better luck getting the rpms from the Livna repo? The only thing I noticed is that there isn't any Livna 9xxx rpm files available. I guess I'll be have to use the 8776 drivers then?
Thanks for your patience. Appreciate it.
