Default NVidia + vanillla kernel ==> versions ?


I am regulary updateing my system with the newest release of
the linux kernel from ftp.kernel.org.

My graphics card is an nVidia Corporation GeForce 7600 GT (rev a2)
(according to lspci).

For kernels of version 2.6.26.* I was using nvidia driver version 173.14.12.

This version failed to compile on 2.6.27.* kernels.

The newer version of the nvidia drivers (177.80) does compile but
end up in a black screen and a locked computer.

Is there any nvidia-driver, which can be used with linux 2.6.27.* and
the nVidia Corporation GeForce 7600 GT graphics card ?

Thank you very much for any help in advance!

Kind regards,
Meino Cramer
