Re: 3.3.6-3 kernel update and nvidia

What is your graphics card? Mine is NVS 4200M and I am not seeing any problems.

Code:
root ~# uname -r
3.3.6-3.fc17.x86_64


root ~# lspci | grep -i vga
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Device 1057 (rev a1)

Re: 3.3.6-3 kernel update and nvidia

I had to boot using the previous kernel.


root@fedora15-partition dwarthog]# uname -r
3.3.5-2.fc16.x86_64

[root@fedora15-partition dwarthog]# lspci | grep -i vga
02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GT200 [GeForce GTX 260] (rev a1)

BTW, please ignore the partition name as this is an FC16 partition, not FC15. (The best laid plans.....)

Re: 3.3.6-3 kernel update and nvidia

Hmmm! Let me take a shot at it! See if you have the relevant kernel module for the graphics driver/card.

Code:
find / -iname nvidia.ko
If I understand everything right, there should be one module for each kernel installed! Like this -

Code:
find / -iname nvidia.ko
/usr/lib/modules/3.3.4-5.fc17.x86_64/extra/nvidia/nvidia.ko
/usr/lib/modules/3.3.6-3.fc17.x86_64/extra/nvidia/nvidia.ko
I believe, if you use akmod (which you do), the kernel modules should be built automatically with each kernel update.

Here you go.

/lib/modules/3.3.5-2.fc16.x86_64/extra/nvidia/nvidia.ko
/lib/modules/3.3.4-3.fc16.x86_64/extra/nvidia/nvidia.ko

Re: 3.3.6-3 kernel update and nvidia

I remember that one.

It had to do with the move from 3.2.x to 3.3.x if I recall correctly.

Ostensibly a "point" update, 3.3.4/5/6 etc. should not encounter that particular build issue.

Re: 3.3.6-3 kernel update and nvidia

I have the same issue with my 9600GT. I am still a noob at this point but saw the same thread which got me to the point where I can boot after removing all the nvidia drivers, but that is about it for now. I have yet to try the nouveau driver because from what I can tell, the problem should be fixed. Correct?
