Re: 2.6.6 kernel breaks NVIDIA driver?
Ok, I've been searching all over the net, and a lot of people claim that the nvidia driver will work if 4k stacks and regparm are disabled. The thing is for a lot of people this might be true, but for a lot of people it isn't. I've been trying to upgrade to 2.6.6 myself, and no matter if 4k stacks and regparm are enabled or disabled, it just will not work. Period. I get the message that the nvidia module is in an invalid format or something like that. Now, it's not that big of a deal for me, I'm running Gentoo and I'm happy with 2.6.5. It's annoying that a kernel upgrade will screw up graphics drivers, but since 2.6 isn't considered as stable as 2.4 yet, I can accept that. I just hope nVidia will release updated drivers soon.
