running nvidia kernel 7676 on linux 2.6.16
To any interested in running an older Nvidia kernel like 7676 on Linux 2.6.16 , here is a patch that allows to compile the 7676 kernel on it.
I needed that because the Go6600 is not correctly supported by the latest driver (8178) and the 7676 driver does not compile under 2.6.16 and nobody knows when the next one -supposed to compile under 2.6.16 and support the Go6600- will get out.
BTW, why isn't there any beta version of the Linux drivers as there is for Windows ?
Procedure is as usual:
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7676-pkg1.run --extract-only
patch < NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-7676-linux2.6.16.diff.txt
My 2 cents,
