Default installed new kernel and now X dont work??

I had Nvidia drivers on RH working fine.
I have just upgraded my kernel and now X will not start saying it is not configured.

Do I need to re-configure my X conf everytime I update my kernel???


cheers

You will have to re-install your drivers after upgrading the kernel. Before you do so, I recommend backing up your XF86.conf file so that you can replace it after reinstalling your drivers.

Also, I am not sure if this is me, but I upgraded to the 2.4.20-20.9 kernel and I don't think the nVidia drivers are working with it yet. Keeps saying "incorrect kernel headers" but I have the right src files installed.

I wouldn't sweat that, I'd just get the kernel-source RPM that they mentioned (with the link) and then I'd backup my XF86CONFIG file and then re-install the nVidia drivers. After reinstalling the drivers, put your backed up XF86CONFIG file back in place, and it should work. It did for me.
