Default Fedora Core 1 + nForce 2 Guide?

I've been somewhat frustrated not getting FC1 to work with nForce drivers (NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.tar.gz)

Yesterday I installed a new kernel http://people.redhat.com/arjanv/2.6/...1.131.i686.rpm but this one seems to need a patch.

Anyone know of a guide to get both audio and nvnet working without patching anything? Older kernel is fine, as long as it's the updated one, 2149.

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...threadid=20426 is a thread about the new NVIDIA ethernet driver - you can use that in lieu of the binary drivers.

Be sure to give feedback to the driver authors - even if it works perfectly fine.

I didn't feel like patching it. Plus there are still a few problems with the 2.6.1 - at least here. So currently on 2149 :>

Hmmmm - I thought you were using a "modern" kernel, like 2.4.24 or 2.6.1.

Yeah, but 2.4.23, 2.4.24, 2.6.0 and 2.6.1 are the only kernels that have the forcedeth driver bundled with the source.
