Default Re: 2.6.6 kernel breaks NVIDIA driver?

" At present 4k stacks are selectable in config. When the feature has settled
in we should remove the 8k option. This will break the nvidia modules. But
Fedora uses 4k stacks so a new nvidia driver is expected soon"

So, the whole point is that NVidia has to keep up with Kernal development, 4kstacks is now the default and the option to change will soon disappear.

So, for the people who want fedora core2 (and that is me too) you can download the standard kernal source and compile(and have a unsupportable system) or you can wait for the new drivers.

And for all you SUSE, Debian and other distribution of the day people, you can thank the fedora folks for making sure that everything works when you get to 2.6.6.
My post has nothing to do with 4KSTACKS, that's another issue that is fully understood. I have 2.6.6-rc3-mm2 with the 4KSTACKS patch reversed running with 5336 built on SuSE 9.0 and runs on 9.1. The build is failing as shown on 2.6.6-mm kernels. It's either a SuSE 9.1 bug or due to some change in 2.6.6-mm as those are the only things that have changed on this box since I built 2.6.6-rc3-mm2.
