Post RedHat 8.0 I686 arch and nVidia GeForce4

I'm using a P4 (i686 arch). Redhat 8.0 with a brand new kernel 2.4.18-17.8.0(debug) released just yesterday (10-16-02). Video card is Gainward 700XP with a NVidia GeForce4 Ti4600 chipset and 128 Mb memory on it.

NVidia drivers for my GeForce4 Ti4600 will no longer work, whether I use the ready-built GLX and kernel releases or I rebuild on my own both .src.rpm files. I'm getting a GDM exception (execution error, or EE): " NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVdriver kernel module!".

The GDM complains in the log file that the NVidia chipset is unknown, and the BrookTree chipset is also unknown.

I have to use my old "vesa" driver instead.

Note that the GDM & drivers DO work when I boot using the i386 redhat kernel, but not when using either one of the i686 kernels.

Any help would be appreciated.
