Hopefully you're still monitoring this thread but I had a question. Is
F10 destined to get a 2.6.29 kernel (i.e. not in updates-testing)? The
reason I ask as it has made getting the nvidia proprietary driver
difficult to get from a repo. Atrpms doesn't seem to have a matching
package (I'm running the VDPAU package from atrpms) so I have to use
the package from rpmfusion testing and I don't like mixing repos if I
can help it.
