I am currently waiting on a reply on
I think I will be able to fix it once i know where the kernal recompile options are.
attempting to unload the offending module (rivafb) doesnt work, as linux does not detect that it is running in the first place. But nvidia drivers do. With it now being built into the kernal I am going to need to recomplie the kernal with the rivafb option disabled. This is what i need more information on.
I need to know where to get kernal sources (if i havent got the already lol)
and use them to recmplie :/
seems a bit heavy to get a gfx card goin.. but im up to the challenge.
I want to play americas army

and it's 6109 :P
