Re: Fedora Core 4 Update: kernel-2.6.12-1.1398_FC4



I can confirm we've fixed a critical bug in the nvidia-glx packages from
rpm.livna.org in the last release of our package. 

All kernel-module-nvidia packages previous to 1.0.7174-0.lvn.4 are
affected. Scriptlets were greping out [nvidia|NVdriver] instead of
(nvidia|NVdriver). (what a typo..) :(

We apologies for the inconvenient.

	D - Sorry.
