Unhappy Nvidia propietary driver & Nouveau problem

Ok, ill try to write in english as well as i can.

So, my problem is this:

Fedora has Nouveau drivers installed by default, and I want to install nVidia propietary drivers.

When i try to install Nvidia propietary in runlevel 3, it says that ive to deactivate or unistall Nouveau.

Ok, i do that, but the next reboot, the tty doesnt work (black screen) and i cant access runlevel 3 correctly and i cant install propietary driver.

I have looked this in google and i didnt find nothing, so i ask here.

Thank You.

Thank you.

Im new in Fedora. DO you think i need to uninstall Nouveau first for doing the step "For GeForce 6, 7, 8, 9, 200, 300, 400 & 500 series cards " in the first page you posted?

Yes you need to remove the Nouveau driver (or at least you did last I looked).

Is there some problem with the Nouveau driver ? If so, I also suggest you file a bug report.

Re: Nvidia propietary driver & Nouveau problem

for F14 I did

first
install Kernel-devel (to allow NVIDIA to recompile kernel)
install gcc

Code:
 sudo yum install kernel-devel
sudo yum install gcc
Code:
 sudo nano /boot/grub/grub.conf
in the end of kernel lineAdd

Code:
 rdblacklist =noveau nomodeset
Save and exit

Second

Code:
 sudo nano /etc/inittab
Modify

Code:
 runlevel:5: to 3
Save and exit

reboot


now you will start without X

Login as root
go to directory of drivers

Code:
 chmod 755 NVIDIA_Filename
./NVIDIA
This works flawless
