Default FW: Problem with nvidia-drv-x11 when upgrading to CentOS5.2 (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.


That's the reason why you like to have the same kernel during the distro
lifetime: you can take a module from 2.6.18-53 and use it on
2.6.18-92.1.1 ... of course you have to copy it and use depmod -a (or
use the weak-updates script that is called after each kernel update)

You're right that nvidia kmod doesn't work with Xen kernels though ...
