Next Podcast Delayed – New RPM posted to the LQ Mirror

Well, I was about to do my next podcast, when Audacity starting locking up (out of nowhere). It seemed to be ALSA related, and I decided to reboot into a new Fedora kernel (which I had been putting it off). Lo and behold, upon reboot my display doesn't work. As you may have guessed, the machine has an NVIDIA card. I check the logs, and I see a bunch of:
nvidia: Unknown symbol __VMALLOC_RESERVE
A bit of Googling later and I find out this problem was introduced in 2.6.9, upon which the latest FC2 kernel is based. Since none of the RPMs around seem to have the fix in them, I decided to roll an RPM based off the livna one and post it on the LQ mirror. If you have any problems with it, let me know. …now to see if Audacity works.
