Default Re: 2.6.9-final breaks Nvidia Driver 6111

I would *think* thats its better to patch the driver, rather than the kernel, no? Not a expert in this....

Is this the patch for the driver?:

The modified installation tar here

http://ngc891.blogdns.net/index.php?...nvidia-drivers

fixed the problem for me on two Debian/Sid/i386 machines, one a dual Xeon. Thanks for this patch ! If we had to wait as long as we did last time for nvidia to update their "official" driver, we would be waiting a long time to use the new 2.6.9 kernel.

working great here...

Edit: I found the patch file.

http://kernel.damouse.co.uk/nvidia-k...111-r3.tar.bz2

1. NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6111-pkg1.run --extract-only
2. bzip2 -dc nvidia-kernel-1.0.6111-r3.tar.bz2 | patch -p1, I think you might have to be in the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6111-pkg1/usr/src/nv directory to apply the patch?


Code:
root@NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6111-pkg1#cd usr/src/nv/
root@nv#bzip2 -dc nvidia-kernel-1.0.6111-r3.tar.bz2 | patch -p1

Well, that driver patch from the blog works fine for me on Debian unstable, kernel 2.6.9-final. Just letting you all know how it went.
