Default Re: running nvidia kernel 7676 on linux 2.6.16

I haven't yet tried this but thanks for doing it..

I'm running 7676 on five different LILO boot options and didn't want to have to upgrade ALL of them to 8178 just because a new kernel has been released. Especially when, with my ageing PCI GeForce4 MX 440, I'm very rarely receiving anything in the way of new features or enhanced stability with newer drivers.

I can confirm it compiles and creates a module but I have yet to fully 2.6.16-ise my system (kernel, alsa, nvidia, rt2500, lots of other out-of-kernel patches etc.) so I'll try to feedback later on whether it was a success or not.

Thanks for doing this, though.
