Default Re: 3d acc. on Fedora Core 2 test 3's X.org

You can double check by doing

# grep CONFIG_4KSTACKS /usr/src/linux/.config

If it doesn't say anything, the option to switch to 8K stacks has been removed from the kernel. (I haven't downloaded the latest Fedora yet, so I cannot check myself.)

In that case, you have two options:

* download, configure and compile a stock kernel (from kernel.org for instance)
* install the source rpm, revert the 4k-stacks patch and configure and compile this kernel

Probably the latter is preferable, since you would still have the rest of the Fedora patches intact. A description of how to accomplish this:

. 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

Of course you have to change the kernel version, this example was used for FC2 test 2, IIRC.

Now, configure, compile and install the kernel and re-install the nvidia driver and you should be up and running.
