Default Kernel 2.6.0

Has anyone successfully gotten the NVIDIA binary driver working with kernel 2.6.0 (test10, or thereabouts) ?

What's involved in doing this? My compile failed because of missing file (/lib/modules/2.6.0-0.test10.1.98/build/include/linux/modversions.h)

I assumed this is a difference between 2.4 and 2.6. Any idea when we'll be able to get the nvidia driver working with 2.6? In the mean time, the nv driver appears to work, but I need the GL acceleration in the nvidia driver.

You probably wont see offical support for some time. But there is an unoffical patch at http://minion.de/ its not easy, I personaly havent gotten it to work, but didnt try to hard either. The instructions are all there as well.

Default Thanks

Thanks, I found it. I managed to get the NVIDIA kernel module built for 2.6.0-test10 now. I'm still having some problems, but hopefully I should be able to get them resolved soon.

Thanks for the response.
