Default Re: Nvidia 5336 driver with Fedora Core 2

It works the following way:

. install the kernel sources (kernel-source-2.6.5-1.315)
. install the kernel SRPM (kernel-2.6.5-1.315.src.rpm)
. cd /usr/src/linux-2.6.5-1.315
. patch -R -p1 < ../redhat/SOURCES/linux-2.6.5-nostack.patch

Now configure, compile and install the kernel and reboot into a non-graphical runlevel (2 or 3).
Uninstall and re-install the Nvidia driver. Everything should be fine now. Not extremely stable, but at least you can now switch back and forth between VTs.

Good luck. ;-)
