Updating linux kernel with nvidia driver

It could happen that the x-windows fails when the linux kernel is updated. For fedora 10, the cursor stay on the black screen to the left upper corner after update. In this case

try to get into root console:

# crtl+alt F5/F6/F7

Then mount a usb key to reinstall nvidia driver for linux:

# mkdir /media/sdf1 (could be sdb1, depending on the partitions)
# mount /dev/sdf1 /media/sdf1
# sh NVIDIA*.run
