Default Re: Problem with Kernel 2.6.29 and Legacy 96.43.11 drivers

Ah, so that caused it. Thanks a million. Think this means I am to recompile my kernel.

Actually, I am using 2.6.29.2. I've been having that issue since 2.6.29 release and been pretty much reverting back to 2.6.28.7 every time the nvidia driver fails.

So, does anyone know if or when NVidia plans to put out drivers that support PAT?

Edit: I figured out how to override debian's update-grub script and install grub with the nopat command permanently set to the kernel. But I think it would be better if NVidia can put out a workaround that allows the drivers to support PAT, since PAT is said to be better than MTRR.
