    If you don't know, then you don't want it.

    Am I missing something?
    If you do "rm -rf", it will delete the downloaded source archive! So wget cannot continue.. It will download again!

    I got it to build the kernel but had no luck with nVidia. This should install when the kernel installs, right?
    Just to be sure, where would one download the version of KC with this bug fix? I got mine from http://kcheck.sourceforge.net/pool/testing-git/

    Did you reupdate KernelCheck after I posted the update?

    EDIT: That is the right link. Also, I pinpointed and fixed the problem. If you update KernelCheck again, it should work.

    Sorry, I misunderstood your first post. I thought you asking me to ADD the rm -rf option. Anyway, I fixed it and uploaded the fix.

    Re: HowTo: Installing and using KernelCheck

    I had luck building the kernel and nvidia debs but the driver still doesn't seem to work. When I boot with the new kernel X won't load because it doesn't find the driver. Is there anything special that needs to be done, or should this be a normal install, reboot and go type of thing?

    Hmmm... I'll look at Envy and hopefully this will be fixed by tomorrow. At least the debs were built though, thats the main part. Try sudo modprobe nvidia in the new kernel and restart X.
