I have downloaded linux-2.6.14-rc3, but was unable to apply the patch: I 
put it within /linux and wrote
patch --verbose -p1 < Patch_nvidiafb
Is that not correct? It failed on 5 hunks out of 5.

Nevertheless, I tried to compile the kernel using rivafb, but I got this 
error:

init/built-in.c
.tmp_vmlinux1
localsymbol 0 (or 1 or 2 or 3):discarded in section 
`.exit.data`from\ 			drivers/built-in.c
[.tmp_vmlinux1] Error 1

I don't see to what item in menuconfig this could be related. There are 
no such files as init/built-in or drivers/built-in.

Could you please enlighten me?

Charles
