    I am going to try this in my 64 bit system. I need the Nvidia 9755 drivers, I have daul 7900GS cards.

    Can you PM me or explain how to rename the module? I just don't understand what you mean. Maybe I am making more out of it than needed, I just want this to work. Is this done before compiling the kernel? See what I mean, I'm lost here.....

    That did the fix for me.

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    ***SOLVED***

    Well, I went for it after reading about the kernel options online. I removed several things I knew I didn't need, added some stuff I need and went for it. From step one of the HOWTO to reboot took 43 minutes total! Thant was the easy part. I did indeed have lots of issues with NVIDIA drivers not working. I am currently in X using "nv" drivers. I downloaded the actual Nvidia 9755 drivers off the website into my home folder and installed Envy before rebooting just in case. I have tried both, they error no matter what I do. I have so many xorg.conf backups it's not funny! Please take a quick look at this, do you see any issues?

    Identifier "Generic Monitor"

    EndSubSection
    EndSection

    Section "Extensions"
    Option "Composite" "Enable"
    EndSection

    That is after unpacking the driver from the website that will not boot.
    Here is what I am using right now that does work:

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "nVidia Corporation G71 [GeForce 7900 GS]"
    Driver "nv"
    BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
    EndSection

    VertRefresh 43-60
    EndSection

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Default Screen"
    Device "nVidia Corporation G71 [GeForce 7900 GS]"
    Monitor "Generic Monitor"
    DefaultDepth 24
    SubSection "Display"
    Depth 1
    Modes "1440x900" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    EndSubSection
    SubSection "Display"
    Depth 4
    Modes "1440x900" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    EndSubSection
    SubSection "Display"
    Depth 8
    Modes "1440x900" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    EndSubSection
    SubSection "Display"
    Depth 15
    Modes "1440x900" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    EndSubSection
    SubSection "Display"
    Depth 16
    Modes "1440x900" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    EndSubSection
    SubSection "Display"
    Depth 24
    Modes "1440x900" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    EndSubSection

    Section "DRI"
    Mode 0666
    EndSection

    BusID is the only thing that pops out to me between the two.......I tried to just add it to my first attemp, it didn't work.
    Everything else works, very well I might add and it's crisp. I didn't think it would be faster but it is. I want to keep it, I just want the nvidia drivers and SLI back!

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    For whatever reson, when I installed the nvidia driver, it did not remove/comment out "dri" in the modules. It took me a bit to find it, comment it out and try it. Since then, I have multi gpu and sli working with accelerated graphics on my new kernel! It is much faster at some things, the same on others. All in all, very worth it.

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    When I created 'my own' kernel image it was much larger than the one which you can download through synaptic. Why would this be so? Is there anywhere which describes the options you can check/uncheck?

    You have to disable debugging in the kernel, that's what's making it so big.

    Hi - I tried this but:
    * Unable to find the GTK+ installation. Please make sure that
    * the GTK+ 2.0 development package is correctly installed...
    * You need gtk+-2.0, glib-2.0 and libglade-2.0.
    *
    make: *** [gconfig] Error 2
    ...and when trying to install:
    Couldn't find any package whose name or description matched "libglade-2.0"
    Couldn't find any package whose name or description matched "glid-2.0"
    Couldn't find any package whose name or description matched "gtk+-2.0"
    No packages will be installed, upgraded, or removed.
    What else can I try? Thnx for your help.
