"Heh heh, can't wait, I'm compiling 2.6.33-rc8 right now. To enable the nouveau driver, you have to go into Device drivers -> Staging drivers. I found some extra wireless drivers in there, including one for the rt8192su, which should work on the USB wireless adapter supplied by Norhtec. ...that's interesting. Now, if I can solve the power-off problem in the Gecko... Oh yeah, one other thing, there is a new RDC PATA driver, which I enabled. So, it's going to be very interesting trying this out on the Gecko.
