Binary graphics drivers?

Binary graphics drivers?

Parent article: 4K stacks for everyone?

I seem to remember that there was a warning in the kernel configuration option about breaking binary-only modules such as NVidia and ATI drivers if the stack is only 4k. Was this problem fixed?

Although I am currently running x86_64, which uses 8k stacks, I have run the same machine on i386 Fedora (4k stacks) with the NVidia drivers with no problem.

Yes - NVidia, at least, fixed their driver to work with 4k stacks back at the time. I used it for many months on my old x86 system, before switching to AMD64.

As I recall, the nVidia graphics drivers were fixed to work with 4k stacks at around the time 2.6.7 came out. Either .7 or .8. It's been awhile, though. I have been running with 4k stacks and the nVidia driver for several kernel versions with no incident.
