  Working fine for me on t61p laptop with nividia ..

  I built using Fedora tools (rather than direct from upstream)


  Make sure you have the usual tools:

  (i) As root:

      yum install yum-utils rpmdevtools

  (ii) Set up build tree (as user)


  (iii) download src rpm from koji
         (fix wrapped lines below)

        cd ~/rpmbuild/SRPMS


  (iii) get any deps -  need root for this.

        su -c 'yum-builddep kernel-2.6.39-0.rc5.git0.0.fc16.src.rpm'

   (iv)  install source:

         rpm -Uvh kernel-2.6.39-0.rc5.git0.0.fc16.src.rpm

   (v) Build it:

        cd ../SPECS

       rpmbuild -bb --without debug \\
         --without debuginfo --target=$(uname -m) \\

   (vi) Install rpms :

        cd ~/rpmuild/RPMS/<arch>

        etc ..
