Default Re: Linux Games

I was having some problems with init 3, but I finally got past that and executed the command to install the driver. First it produced an error message that it could not connect to nvidia, but when I hit the enter key, it proceeded to produce a warning"

"Your Linux kernel has known problems in it's implementation of the change_page_attr () kernel" It continued with a message recommending to 2.6.11 or newer. And said that if I wanted that it would try to work around the problem, but that it might cause system instability.

I bailed out, and came back here to see what you could tell me. I do not want to upgrade the kernel, and I do not want to mess up the system. How likely is it that installing the driver will foul things up? Is there any alternative, except to not install the driver at all?
