Re: help!! Nvidia drivers stop at kmod-nvidia-3.2.7-1.fc16.i686.PAE.i686

CUDA is a mixed bag. I use it in a Distributed.net project, RC5-72.

It can really slow down your desktop, making it seem like you are working in a cold barrel of molasses. I wouldn't recommend using it unless you have multiple video cards, one of which you will use for CUDA processing. That is how I have my desktop set up. The built-in Nvidia 8300 GPU is controlling my desktop. The add-in GeForce GT220 card does not have a monitor hooked to it. Instead, it is running the CUDA client. Thus, my desktop runs well.

Also, I noticed that with dnetc running, if I go to print something, it has been interfering. I have to halt the CUDA client, print, then resume the client. I think it has to do with the graphics calculations during the printer rasterization prior to sending the print job to the printer.

In any case, the blender client may or may not exhibit these issues. I am telling you just so you will be aware of what may happen if you can get a CUDA blender client running.

Now for the CUDA libraries, the distributed net AMD64/CUDA client came packaged with them. They just needed to be made visible to the system. In my case, I copied them to the appropriate /usr/lib64 area and linked them to /usr/lib. It was that or edit path statements to point to the directory where they were located. What I did was easier for me. You might find the libraries are packaged with the blender client. If not, you might need to download them from Nvidia. The blender site may be your best source of information on how to get CUDA going for that project.

Re: help!! Nvidia drivers stop at kmod-nvidia-3.2.7-1.fc16.i686.PAE.i686

FYI, I am experiencing the same problem. I did do a clean all. That seemed to help as it brought down a new kernel and kmod... Also installed akmod ("yum install akmod-nvidia") as above said it wasn't a problem to have both. Anyway same problem after reboot... no video.... So went back to ...3.2.7-1 and all is well again....

Linux FedoraServer 3.2.7-1.fc16.i686.PAE #1 SMP Tue Feb 21 01:30:59 UTC 2012 i686...


[edited]

Spoke (wrote) to soon. Turns out I had to do the "yum clean expire-cache" . That did the trick.... Sorry about this post. uname now reports:

Linux FedoraServer 3.2.10-3.fc16.i686.PAE #1 SMP Thu Mar 15 20:37:01 UTC 2012 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

@ StephenH OK thanks I'll try and see how it goes when I get CUDA up and running.

Checked my computer just now rpm had updates for thier repos so I installed them then did "yum clean expire-cache" and still no new kmods available.

Nevermind guys somehow everything starts working for no aparent reason. list of drivers is current.

By any chance did you look here?

http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfr...iew/index.html

I found it with a simple Google search for rpmfusion and then browse the rpmfusion nonfree repository. You may wish to grab this:

rpmfusion-nonfree-release-16-3
