The advise is offered as a precaution. The only way to really know for sure, is to put your video card in another machine, one that you can experiment with.

I am on LL 5.4.  I need to build a custom kernel to add Atari file system support back in.

The HOWTO at https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/tutorials/linux-lite-kernel-update-howto/msg42126/#msg42126 says not to use the guide if using proprietary drivers from the installation.

I am using the proprietary NVIDIA drivers.  Is there still a way to use a custom kernel with that?
