    I installed the 2.6.30-rc1 kernel and patched nvidia driver , everything seems fine except I've lost my wireless (rtl8185) which was working flawlessly with .28 and .29 .
    if it ain't broke you haven't tweaked it enough

    I do not know what I did wrong, but here goes:
    When I first downloaded .debs and rebooted, no progress bar (strange) but after a few seconds I got login screen and logged in ok. took a few minutes before wireless was picked up and connected (strange). I then tried to install 'fglrx' and rebooted and all I got was blank screen. Rebooted into .28 kernel and removed 'fglrx', rebooted and got blank screen again. Reboot back into .28 again and went to 'Synaptic' and completely removed the .30 kernel rebooted, this time into .29 kernel and reinstalled the .30 kernel. All I get after grub window is blank screen. Tried recovery for .30 and it scrolls a bit of info then stops and nothing workable and have to reboot.
    I do not have a clue as to what is going on and feel completely lost on this.
    Any suggestions would be great.

    I managed to get nvidia173.14.18 working with rc1, and now rc2. No real problems, but bootup hangs for 25 seconds while searching for nvidia173.14.16. It fails, then continues on and succeeds with the Jaunty boot process. Don't expect a solution, but curious why it would search for that driver. Note: reinstalled a modified nvidia173.14.16 to test, but still hangs.

    2.6.30-rc2 is running on an IBM Thinkpad R31 with integrated i830 graphics and an IBM ThinkCentre A30 with integrated i845 graphics. Both these are slow (!) with full screen YouTube video. 2.6.30rc2 seems to help a bit.
