Re: how to enable the nvidia driver in f14?

Sorry I don't understand your question..
Did you mean
Code:
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-260.19.12.run --uninstall
yum install akmod-nvidia

Re: how to enable the nvidia driver in f14?

exactly! i would like to have the akmod instead of the original driver, but akmod-nvidia is too slow and hangs my system...

Re: how to enable the nvidia driver in f14?

it's exactly the same code. If it's 'slow', it's misconfigured somehow; probably nvidia-xconfig didn't configure everything that needs to be configured for the driver to work as packaged in fusion.

nvidia-xconfig configures xorg.conf once. And this same code works differently from one xorg.conf.

Re: how to enable the nvidia driver in f14?

so what should we write on xorg to make it work correctly? because the file in nvidia-xconfig is so simple that seems unusefull

Cool Re: how to enable the nvidia driver in f14?

I too would like to know the answer to this question. akmod method fails at present, results in same driver not found error. Indeed, locate nvidia.ko returns nothing. Nouveau works fine in the meanwhile, but it seems a waste to have spent a little more for the nvidia 140m card if can't be used.

My guess is that I just must wait a bit until the fusion repo rebuilds nvidia against latest kernel. Sound like an ok plan? I don't want to do things outside of yum, like build own from nvidia.

Cheers, and I follow this thread with interest,

Oh and the bug report too, thanks for link. Looks like it is being worked on now, but could be a while before fixed. And maybe not as simple as building new from nvidia itself. If I am reading bug correctly.

Re: how to enable the nvidia driver in f14?

I mean the code of the driver itself is the same. nvidia-xconfig should write a correct xorg.conf AFAIK.

Re: how to enable the nvidia driver in f14?

me too:
Code:
[root@localhost dook]# nvidia-config-display 
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/nvidia-config-display", line 28, in <module>
    import livnaConfigDisplay.ConfigDisplay
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/livnaConfigDisplay/ConfigDisplay.py", line 29, in <module>
    import xf86config
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/xf86config.py", line 1, in <module>
    import ixf86config
ImportError: /usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/ixf86configmodule.so: undefined symbol: xstrtokenize
for install the nvidia driver I use this guide: http://www.fedoraonline.it/modules/s...e=3&itemid=332

I'm using F14

If I run in 3th runlevel
Code:
# sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-260.19.12.run
# nvidia-xconfig
# init 5
$ glxgears
16892 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3378.328 FPS
All works fine. This means the xorg.conf is correct.

If I install nvidia driver from RPMFusion
Code:
yum install akmod-nvidia
Exactly the same correct xorg.conf from the first example. I get very slow 2d and
Code:
$ glxinfo
name of display: :0.0
X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
Major opcode of failed request: 138 (NV-GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 4 ()
Resource id in failed request: 0x3000003
Serial number of failed request: 30
Current serial number in output stream: 30
in /var/log/Xorg.0.log I see
Code:
[   111.489] (EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the GLX module; please check in your X
[   111.490] (EE) NVIDIA(0):     log file that the GLX module has been loaded in your X
[   111.490] (EE) NVIDIA(0):     server, and that the module is the NVIDIA GLX module.  If
[   111.490] (EE) NVIDIA(0):     you continue to encounter problems, Please try
[   111.490] (EE) NVIDIA(0):     reinstalling the NVIDIA driver.
The problem isn't in the correct xorg.conf IMHO.


PS
Anyone tried nvidia-graphics from Atrpms repo?

Re: how to enable the nvidia driver in f14?

nicklee: I agree - as I keep saying, the problem is that the packaged driver expects various bits of post-install configuration to be done by nvidia-config-display and the 'nvidia' service, which currently doesn't happen because of the breaking in pyxf86config. If you can reconstruct all the configuration work that nvidia-config-display is supposed to do, theoretically you should wind up with a working driver, but I don't think anyone's bothered to walk through that step-by-step yet.

Re: how to enable the nvidia driver in f14?

AdamW: you mean something like this?

Code:
Section "Files"
        ModulePath   "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia"
        ModulePath   "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules"
EndSection

Section "ServerFlags"
        Option      "AIGLX" "on"
EndSection

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Videocard0"
        Driver      "nvidia"
        Option      "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
EndSection

Section "Extensions"
        Option      "Composite" "Enable"
EndSection
I believe this is the absolute bare minimum on 64-bit fedora for enabling the nvidia driver and 3D features.

Replace /usr/lib64 in the ModulePath lines if you're using 32-bit

Re: how to enable the nvidia driver in f14?

I didn't mean just xorg.conf, no. I think it does other stuff too, like moving libraries around. I forget the details.

Re: how to enable the nvidia driver in f14?

I don't think it does. all I did was install akmod-nvidia and it pulled in the nvidia drivers, crafted my xorg.conf (I cheated actually, and copied it from my archives) and bingo, it worked.

Re: how to enable the nvidia driver in f14?

I gave up on trying to make the fusion one work. The bug noted above was the culprit I suspect. Purging all nvidia and livna stuff installed from fusion, downloading the binary from nvidia works just fine.

Once downloaded, I rebooted into single user mode, telinit into 3, run the installer, reboot, and Bob's my uncle.

Re: how to enable the nvidia driver in f14?

I have a little problem.....
I upgraded yesterday from F12 to F14 , now I have a new kernel and an old one, with the old one I could boot with akmod-nvidia and nvidia's binaries, the problem is I can't boot with the new kernel, to install nvidia's binaries, because it freezes on some nvidia driver thing....
I added vga=791 to the boot parameters but it didn't work....
and I can't run yum update because it needs the new kernel, the one I can't boot from....

Thanks for helping
