Hi John,

If I remember correctly, Karanbir said he was using the same nvidia.ko file
over several generations (?) of kernels just by copying it.
However, we need to ask him for the details.

Akemi
------------------
Akemi,

Yes, someone did mention that. The only thing I am kind of worried about
when just copying it is, the difference between the Kernel Versions. Using
it over the same generation of kernels I'm assuming it is of the 2.6.x.x.x
family of kernels? If it works without problems then good. It's that I have
all ways recompiled a Kernel module to the latest kernel on the machine.

I also know from previous email and notes that it will not work with the Xen
Kernel unless something has changed. None the less I've thought about giving
a wack at it just to try.
