    Hi All,

I've got two - nvidia.ko ( the nvidia port ) - I'm hopeful this will
work -, and
hpt374.ko ( Highpoint RAID driver )  - I'm less hopeful about this one ...

As a datapoint, the recent PAE changes MFC'd to -stable seem to break
the hpt374 module pretty badly - it panics during init if PAE is
enabled. Luoqi confirmed that PAE changes to the kernel ABI are the
reason for the breakage.

Not sure if I should have posted this to bugs or kernel :)   ...
Not sure I'm understanding what your trying to say. Are you seeing
a panic trying to load these modules under DF ? We don't have the PAE
code added to DF at this current time. If your seeing a panic under
DF please post infomation regarding the panic.

I'm just building/installing DF for the first time. Just wanted to know
if I should expect these modules to work under DF as they are 3rd party
binaries built against 4.8 ...
