kernel 2.6.15 + nvidia 6629 driver install ?

i have geforce ti 2 legacy graphic card.
my system is unstable and freezed when using 7174 nvidia-legacy driver.
but 2.6.14 + nvidia 6629 + xorg 6.8.2 was very stable and glx worked good.

1) howto install nvidia 6629 driver in this kernel version?

2) or i wish my  kernel to downgrade 2.6.14 version. howto udev and some packages patch?

my system chipset and card info
$ lspci | grep -i agp
00:01.0 PCI bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C598/694x [Apollo MVP3/Pro133x AGP]
$ lspci | grep -i nv
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV15DDR [GeForce2 Ti] (rev a4) … 843c2fc769

I just added via-agp to /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6 and everything worked fine smile Took me a while to find everything.

Anyway, here's the steps I took to fix this:
1. Re-compile your new kernel 'cause you probably made a switch to udev (that's what happened to me).
2. Re-emerge nvidia-kernel and nvidia-glx. The latest Gentoo-stable drivers should work (1.0.6629-r5 and 1.0.6629-r6 respectively).
3. I didn't have any /dev/nv* devices, so I ran /sbin/ to put them there. I also changed RC_DEVICE_TARBALL in /etc/conf.d/rc to "yes" as I saw mentioned above. Not sure if this is necessary, but it works for me.
4. Make sure via-agp module was getting loaded, reboot and enjoy smile

My xorg.conf file uses the nvidia driver and I load dbe, type1, freetype & glx modules, no dri.

i'm poor english sorry.
