su -c 'rpm -Uvh download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm'

Response:

error: unmet dependencies:
system-release> = 14 is needed by rpmfusion-free-release-14-2.noarch
rpmlib (PayloadIsXz) <= 5.2-1 is needed by rpmfusion-free-release-14-2.noarch
system-release> = 14 is needed by rpmfusion-nonfree-release-14-2.noarch
rpmlib (PayloadIsXz) <= 5.2-1 is needed by rpmfusion-nonfree-release-14-2.noarch

Anyone help me?

Thanks!

Re: Fedora 11 + nVIDIA GTS 450

The rpmfusion-release package you are trying to install if for F14. F11 is long EOL and if you want to use it you'll have to do quite a bit finagling to get things setup as far as package repositories go. The F11 repos are now in the archives, and you'll need to manually edit your fefora.repo and fedora-updates repo files to direct yum to those archives.

For the rpmfusion repos.. start by installing the repo releases that are for F11 (not listed on their web page, but they are still intact.
Code:
 su -c "rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/releases/11/Everything/i386/os/rpmfusion-free-release-11-1.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/releases/11/Everything/i386/os/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-11-1.noarch.rpm"
Don't worry about the "i386" if you're using a 64 bit install, the repo files will automatically direct you to the correct "arch".

There are several threads on the forum here showing how to modify the Fedora repo files to point to the archives. Search for them. I'm not on my F12 machine at present, so I can't just copy 'n paste for you at the moment.

You will not find newer nvidia drivers, or newer anything else, on these stagnant repo sites. The last "updated" kmod-nvidia" from the F11 RPMFusion site is kmod-nvidia-190.53-1.fc11, a far cry from the current 290.10 release. If you want anything newer than 190.53, you'll have to install the package from Nvidia.

I try this and it works well for me. But I need to set a file ".run" to chmod + x and ... run this.

Thank you very much!!!

Re: Fedora 11 + nVIDIA GTS 450

Have a look at this old thread and find the post by PabloTwo for F12. It applies equally for F11 as well. The post formatting has been stripped, but you'll figure it out. Basically kill all mirrorlist= lines and change the baseurl= line to point to the archived repos.

Re: Fedora 11 + nVIDIA GTS 450

Which repo files did you modify? The link I posted was for modifying the fedora.repo and fedora-updates.repo files. The message you're referring to seems to come from the rpmfusion repos.
